The Good Shepherd

SUNDAY IS COMING
It’s Pyjama day in bridgeKIDS - no need to get dressed this week!

TO READ TOGETHER
John 10:11-18
Jesus cares for us like a good shepherd. Throughout the Bible, God promises to shepherd the people - to care for them, to lead them, and keep them safe. Jesus is the promised Good Shepherd.

TO LEARN TOGETHER
I am the good shepherd. I know my sheep, and my sheep know me. John 10:14

TO DO TOGETHER
Parenting is shepherd-like — loving, guiding, protecting. Spend some time reviewing your family’s safety plans. How can your child call you for help? (Review home/cell/work numbers.) Who should they call if you can’t be reached? Remind them of all the “shepherds” in their life who can help them when they are in a tough spot.

SO I’M WONDERING…
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR KIDS (AND YOURSELF)
A shepherd takes care of sheep? What does our family take care of?
How do we know Jesus cares for us?
How does God help us when we’re having a hard time?

TO PRAY TOGETHER
Thank you, Jesus, that you’re always watching out for us like a good shepherd! Guide us in your good ways. Amen

KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN
Next time you’re searching for something you lost, think of how God searches us out in our times of need.
