Tonight's lesson is on the "lost" parables. Not that the parables are lost, but that they are about lost things -- the woman's coin, the shepherd's sheep, the prodigal son. Jesus told these parables to illustrate how God feels when a sinner returns to Him.
I've written a children's song about these stories. I've threatened to sing some of the children's songs in class, but my son objects. I'm going to have to sing this one tonight. You can see/hear/print the song here: The Parables.
My Lesson Plan:
Sing: We've been singing the following in class: Tell Me The Story of Jesus, How Shall The Young Secure Their Hearts, Jesus Name Above All Names, Resurrection, The Lord's My Shepherd. Tonight, I'll let them choose one or two to sing.
Recite (in unison): The Good Shepherd and Psalms 23
Today's lesson: The Lost Parables
Review the New Testament cards on the wall. Add Titus. I still haven't gotten a chance to do this. I'm not sure we'll have time to get to it today either, but I put it here just in case.
Let them spend time in the stations.
