Activity: THANK YOU

What you need:
Paper, scissors, crayons, markers, and stickers (optional)

What you do:
Talk about how God gave us a lot of people in our community who help us. Then, help your children to decorate a card (or two) for someone who has helped them.

What to say:
“In our story today, we heard how God gave Nehemiah people who helped him rebuild a wall. God gives us people who help us, too. Let’s think about people in our community who help us. (Pause.) Do we have a mail person who brings us mail and packages? (Pause.) What about a police officer? Do we have someone who helps in our neighborhood by keeping you safe or directing traffic? (Pause.) Who else helps us in our neighborhood? (Pause.) Do we have neighbors who help us? (Pause.)

“God gives us all sorts of people who help us. Let’s make a card to thank a special helper in our neighborhood. (Make card.) Great job! When we have people who help us, we should thank them and thank God for giving these wonderful people to us. God is good and gives us people who help. Who is good? God is good.”

Prayer

“Dear God, thank You for (child’s name). I know You have a plan for them, because you love them. I pray they will always trust that You have a plan for them. And when hard things happen, help them to wait on You, do the right thing, and trust in Your plan for them. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
