r|kids Lesson For Wednesday, March 18, 2020
Wondering Conversation before playing the video:
- Have you ever planted seeds?
- Did they grow fast or slow?
- How do seeds teach us about new life?
Thinking of Others
Usually, we create cards for someone in the church that needs prayer while we watch our video. Since so many people connected to your family need prayer right now, ask kids who comes to mind that they would like to pray for, and help them create a picture card or note they can send by mail. Older kids might consider sending an email, but hand-written notes are always appreciated. Mail is not likely to be able to transmit viruses, but you can still encourage good hand washing before creating cards and using a damp paper towel or tape to seal the envelope. We have been using this same verse each week during our card-making. See if your child remembers it.
Verse that kids can add to their card:
You will pass through deep waters. But I will be with you. Isaiah 43:2
Watching the Video
Questions you might ask after the video ends:
- What did Mr. Rogers bring in today?
- What did he do with it? He planted an orange seed.
- Do you remember all the steps that go into making orange juice for the freezer? Grow, pick, sort, squeeze, concentrate, package, send to store.
- Do we use frozen juices in our home?
- What did Lady Elaine do for friends in this episode? She gave orange juice to her friends.
- Have you ever gotten an Orange-o-gram? A Tele-gram? A Candy-gram?
- How would a special message from you make someone feel special?
Read or have your child read:
Genesis 1:29 – Then God said, “I am giving you every plant on the face of the whole earth that produces its own seeds. I am giving you every tree that has fruit with seeds in it. All of them will be given to you for food.”
Deuteronomy 32:2 – (Poetry from a song of Moses.) Let my teaching fall like rain. Let my words come down like dew. Let them be like raindrops on new grass. Let them be like rain on tender plants..
Invite your child (or children) to say a prayer for your family and for those they’ve been thinking about lately. Pray for our church family as well
