- Last Sunday: Last Sunday we learned about patience and waiting for what we want.
- This Sunday: This Sunday our lesson is I Can Help. Now that we know how to share, we know how to use our hands to give, and we have learned how to be patient with one another…it is now time to start paying attention to the needs of others. In our lesson we will learn how the world needs us, even little ones, to help.
- Next Sunday: I Can Listen, what is the world saying to us? How do we connect with our loved ones. As we expand our awareness, we will explore the lesson of
Spirit Jam/Kindergarten-5th Grade
