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.
Additional ideas:
  • When eating a meal this week talk with your child about remembering Christ giving his body and blood while eating and drinking. 
  • If you and your spouse had communion at your wedding, show your child the pictures of it. 
  • Talk about what "remembrance" means. Example: To remember our country we have flags and celebrate 4th of July.
  •  Coloring Pages: 1. A page in The Really Big Book of Bible Story Coloring Pages 2.and a printout at this link.
  • Listen to the "He Is Risen" playlist on Spotify.
 Bible Verse Journal (to set up your journal see this post)

  3. Help your child draw a piece of bread and a cup.
