Early Bird Special: Lacing Cards
Children who arrive before 9:45 AM get to a bonus activity in Sabbath School. Today the early birds practiced their lacing skills on objects that remind us how we can help others. Our Bible story today is about Dorcas who made clothes for the needy.
Nature Nugget: Dogs
During our nature lesson, children talked about what they liked about dogs. Then, we focused on the fact that dogs are so good at learning obedience, that they can even be entrusted with very important responsibilities, like rescuing people, detecting bad things, helping the disabled. In Deuteronomy 15:5, the Bible says, "Carefully obey the voice of the Lord your God." Check out how this service dog helps this little girl.
Memory Mastery: Moses Receives the 10 Commandments
We are still practicing this story from our Bible timeline until the children learn the title and where it is found in the Bible. This is what I at least want them to be able to say: "Moses Receives the 10 Commandments, Exodus chapter 24 and chapter 31 verse 18." It's on your Memory Mastery CD. If you can, please play the CD a couple of times a week, so your child can practice with me while looking at their booklet.
Mission Mail: Mbali's Story
Mbali is a second grade student at Riverside Adventist School in Cape Town, South Africa. She didn't know English when she got there, but she learned quickly and now tries to help other students. She even practiced reading a Bible story aloud, so that she could tell the story at a church for a school program. Her mother, who is not an Adventist, is now interested in attending programs at Adventist churches. Mbali wants to be a nurse and tell others about Jesus.
