Jubilation at Home this MARCH

Holy Week brings us many stories of what Jesus is willing to give so that we are saved and brought back into God's Family. From March to May this year, we look at three of these stories, beginning with Jesus' time in the Garden of Gethsemane. Parents, note that the story is from Matthew, Mark and Luke this month. 

  • Throughout the month, read each one at a different time: Matthew 26:30-56; Mark 14:26-52; Luke 22:39-53.
  • Watch the story video "The Garden of Gethsemane" found on the Trinity Jubilation YouTube channel (link found above).
  • Encourage your older child to read in The Action Bible,  (pages 625-626).

  • With your younger children (2-6 years old) read “The Gardens of Easter” an Arch Book.
  • The youngest children can read pages 294-301 in "The Storybook Bible," and "The Beginners Bible," pages 446-448. 

Parents, remember each month at home your family can:

  • Family Prayer Tent Card: Use the suggested Lord's Prayer petition with your child.
  • Put the Remembering Work Sheet on your refrigerator and see if your family can speak together Mark 14:36 twice a week. 
  • Worship Liturgy Focus: Read the "Kids in the Divine Service - Sanctus" sheet as a family.
  • Luther's Small Catechism: Read these parts of the Catechism with your child/ren: The Second through Fifth Commandments -- pages 2-3..

Psalm/Hymn/Spiritual Song:

We have some meaningful songs you can use with your children at home.
