To honor and remember the lives of our loved ones
The children will describe and share the life story of a loved one who has died.
Some children have not experienced the death of a close relative. If this is the case, encourage the children to ask about family members who died before they were born. It is a good opportunity to hear family stories.
Be aware of the need for reverence when dealing with this topic. Be sensitive to the possibility that some children are personally grieving the loss of a loved one. Thank them for sharing and assure them that the group will pray for them as they mourn this loss.
