Hi RF Friends,
Today, we started off the morning, playing a fun game that helped us encourage each other. We then dove into our Bible lesson in 1 Kings 19:14-21 and 2 Kings 2:1-15. We took a look at a different sort of friendship between Elijah and Elisha. God knew Elijah needed help and directed him to Elisha. Elisha came alongside Elijah and stayed with him to the very end. Elisha knew the importance of encouragement.
Bottom Line: Friends encourage one another. Our kids are growing up in a world that can feel like everyone is out for themselves. God has a different way for us to live. God wants us to take time out to encourage others. Kids will find out how they can be friends who use their words and actions to build others up.
This is the 2nd week of our Bible Memory Verse Challenge for 2020-2021. It was awesome to hear the kids say their Bible verses again. The kids are off to a great start. This week’s memory verse is “Encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NLT).

Hello Reign Forest Friends!
In week two, we return to 1 Samuel 20 for one of the most famous friendships in the entire Bible: David and Jonathan. These guys went through a lot together. From making a promise to help each other to escaping the dangers of Jonathan’s own father, King Saul, they showed us exactly what it meant for friends to love each other.
Bottom Line: Friends love one another. Just like David and Jonathan, friends can show how they love each other by the way they care for one another and go above and beyond to help each other succeed. It’s this sort of love we experience through Jesus. We pray that kids will follow Him and learn how they can help their friends know how much they’re loved.
Memory Verse: “This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you” (John 15:12, NLT).
