Spring Idea List For Teaching The Bible

We plant seeds. We celebrate Resurrection Sunday and Pentecost, the birthday of the Church. Plants are sprouting and blooming. We spend more time outside with our children. These activities give us chances to teach our children the Bible in daily life. We can use what our children see and experience in daily life as visuals and reminders of God's Word.

Do This In Remembrance Of Me


Since we spend so much time eating with our children, this teaching idea fits well in daily life. This is second in a series of teaching ideas about Jesus Christ's death, resurrection, and ascension, part of the "Jesus Christ Our Savior" series.

Verse: "Do this in remembrance of me." 1 Corinthians 11:24b ESV
Parent Preparation: Pray. Read: Matthew 26:26-27, Luke 22:19-22, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Song: "Thank You Lord" chorus
Teaching Idea:
  • Before Jesus died he ate a last supper with his disciples.
  • (Read 1 Corinthians 11:23-25 or the record from a children's Bible.)
  • Jesus told his disciples that when they eat bread and drink from a cup they were to "Do this in remembrance of me." 1 Corinthians 11:24b ESV
  • The bread represented his body and what he accomplished by his suffering and death. 
  • The cup represented the covenant that was made by shedding of blood. This was for our sins to be forgiven.
