Do you ever teach a memory verse in Sunday School? Or in an after school church group? There are lots of ways to help children learn a verse from the Bible. So on Memory Mondays we’ll look at some ideas. New year – new Monday plan!
This Monday it’s Matthew 3:17 ‘A voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased’
Getting started – give some examples about the things people say about us – let the children give ideas too. I wrote some out in speech bubbles to give ideas.
Talk about what our parents might say about us.
Moving on – explain that God the Father had something to say about his Son – Jesus. Read the verse from the Bible to the children. Was it good or bad? It was good! God was pleased with his Son, Jesus.
Take it to heart– the verse can be cut up – get the children to put it back together in the right order. If children aren’t confident readers make sure that you go through the words first and give some clues. If the group is large then prepare a couple of cut up verses and get the children to work in groups.
