In Case the Take-Home-Page didn't make it home this week. This is what we talked about in RAKlets on July 5, 2013:
This Friday we’ve been focusing on the fact that the Lord’s Supper is a way to remember that Jesus died in our place. As we’ve gone through these other stories in the Bible, we’ve been reminded that the whole Bible points to one truth ~ people are separated from God because of sin and the only way we can be forgiven and brought back into relationship with God is by believing that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for my sin.
Here are some ideas for your family-worship this week. Read more about family worship here.
IDEAS FOR THE LITTLE ONES (age 0-4):

Does your mom ever make you a special dinner? Who likes to go out to a restaurant for a special meal? What sort of things do you like to eat? (Allow time for children to respond to your questions)
Our story today is about a special dinner that Jesus had with his friends. This dinner wasn’t going to be just an ordinary dinner, but a very special meal where Jesus and His friends would remember what God did years before when He led His people out of Egypt. This dinner would also be where Jesus would tell his friends how much he loved them and what He was going to do to rescue them from sin.
Jesus and His friends were very excited to celebrate Passover. It was a special holiday every year. Passover was a time for them to remember many years earlier in Egypt when God passed over and saved His people.
Jesus’ disciples knew all about the Passover feast and they thought this Passover would be just like every other year. But Jesus had planned something special. Jesus knew that it was almost time for Him to die and that once again God would pass over and save those people whom had had chosen. Jesus wanted a special way for everyone to remember what He would do.
During the Passover celebration Jesus held up some bread and thanked God for it. Then Jesus broke it in half and passed it around the table to His disciples. Then Jesus said, “This bread will help you remember what will happen to my body. Please eat this with me.”
The disciples were surprised when Jesus said that! They had never celebrated the Passover like this before.
Then Jesus held up the wine. He thanked God for it, gave it to His disciples and said, “This wine will help you remember what will happen to my blood. God has a plan. My blood will forgive your sin.”
Ever since that special Passover, people have remembered what Jesus did when He died on the cross by eating bread and drinking grape juice together. When we do this at church we remember that Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sin.
- Salvation- cross arms over chest
- Is Found- hand over eyes like you’re looking for something
- In- put fingers from one hand inside cupped other hand
- No One Else- arms out to the side like a cross
- Acts 4:12
