Ahead of April 26 - recognize

The word for this week is recognize.

There are two disciples on the road to Emmaus who are walking sadly because they are mourning the death of Jesus. Jesus meets them on the road. They didn’t recognize him straight away and we are going to think about how to recognize Jesus in our lives and in the lives of others.
Help kids see Jesus in themselves by pointing out when they share love, do something helpful, ask questions, or trust God. These are things Jesus did!

There is a new picture with this week’s word added that can be printed and coloured or your kids can copy the new word into their cross from last week if they would prefer. Please could you print it out for them?

Contact Sarah and I'll email you the page.

I will be praying for you - let me know how I can pray specifically if you would like to

I will be hanging out with any kid who would like to at 4pm on Wednesday afternoon - watch out for the invite tomorrow morning - we’ll be making masks

I am happy to be added to Messenger Kids or Marco Polo if your children want someone else to chat with or send silly pictures to

Pray the following together as an echo prayer using different voices.
Whisper: Jesus,
Shout: We are so glad
Low voice: you hear us,
Squeaky voice: and recognize us,
Normal voice: no matter who we pretend to be. 
Help us recognize you. Amen.

Watch out for your zoom invites on Wednesday and Friday
