Jubilation at Home IN February

On Maundy Thursday night, Jesus intentionally gave His disciples a washing of their feet to show them a "human being" example of what His kind of loving is like. Take time to share with your child about what serving like Jesus is all about.

  • From a Bible or online Bible, read God's story of Jesus washing the disciples' feet from John 13. The reading will take a few minutes.
  • Watch the story video "Jesus Washes Feet" found on the Trinity Jubilation YouTube channel (link found above).

  • Encourage your older child to read in The Action Bible,  (pages 619-624).
  • With your younger children (2-6 years old) read “Jesus Washes Peter's Feet” an Arch Book.
  • The youngest children can read pages 286-293 in "The Storybook Bible." 

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 John 13:35 twice a week.
  • LUTHER'S SMALL CATECHISM: Read these parts of the Catechism with your child/ren - Holy Communion parts 3, 4 & 5 (page 22).
  • Read the KIDS IN THE DIVINE SERVICE -- Agnus Dei sheet as a family.
  • Download, print and have your kid work with any of the 14 ACTIVITY SHEETS or make one of the extra crafts!

Psalm/Hymn/Spiritual Song:
