This means to keep trying even when the going gets tough. The children will be encouraged to have self belief in order to keep on going and to speak out for what they believe is right. They will also reflect upon God's persevering love.
The main Bible story will be the parable of the Lost Sheep, you can read the story with your child below:
The Parable of the Lost Sheep
One day one of the sheep got lost. The shepherd left his 99 sheep in a safe place and went to look for the missing one. He searched high in the mountains and far into the wilderness.
When he finally found his sheep, the shepherd rejoiced. He put the sheep on his shoulders and carried it home.
The shepherd called his friends together and told them how he had found his sheep. They celebrated together.
Jesus Christ is like the shepherd in the story, and we are like the sheep. Jesus watches over us and helps protect us from danger. He doesn’t give up on us when we make mistakes. And He rejoices when we repent and return to His gospel. That is why the scriptures call Him the Good Shepherd.
