Summary: This week, children discovered what Jesus said about peace. It’s about much more than not being violent! Kids will learned that Christ-followers want to act, talk, and be as much like Jesus as possible. When we get to know him better, we reflect him to the world. Being a peacemaker is not easy. However, when we follow Jesus into this way of living, we grow closer to him and help people see us as God’s kids.
The Point: Peacemakers reflect God’s peace to the world.
Verse: James 3:18 (NLT)  Those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

Please help us to always choose peace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
  4. DO:
  • Watch this week’s video with your family.
