May 17th, Faith Hope & Love

Family Sunday School 


1 Corinthians 13:1-13

This week we will hear a story that Jesus tells about God’s house in heaven. He is telling this story right before he has to leave his best friends. He doesn’t want them to worry, so he tells this story.

Activity: 1st Corinthians 13 Mobile

Materials needed

  • PDF template of hearts
  • scissors
  • yarn, string, or jute twine
  • glue or tape


  • Cut out the hearts from the template (cut them out yourself, or have the kids cut them out with safety scissors to practice their scissor skills).
  • Tape or glue 3 pieces of string to the back of the big “LOVE” heart.  The piece of string in the center can be slightly shorter than the 2 on the sides.
  • Tape or glue each of the smaller hearts onto the strings.  There are enough hearts to place 4 hearts on each side string and 3 hearts in the center, if you want a symmetrical mobile.



  • Love MobileMake an extra mobile using the template from the River of Hope, Faith at Home web page. Leave on the doorstep of someone you know who would like a reminder of God’s love!

    Volunteer to help at the food shelf – families continue to be in need of food in Hutchinson and surrounding communities. Find time this week to help those who live daily with food insecurity.

    Review past week activities

    Find one or two that you haven’t done from a past week.


    WE GO OUT family activities from past weeks:

    Spring Flowers

    • Make tissue paper flowers and attach a message of love to the “stem”. (Something like, “Jesus Loves You” or, “You are a loved child of God”)
    • Leave the flowers in places where people might find it – you might want to write another note that says … “If you see me, take me home to brighten your day!”

    Mother’s Day all week

    • Think of one or two women in your life who have “mothered” you. Send them a card thanking them for the love they have shown you!

    Prayer Chalk “Go Out” Activity

    From the Lesson on Sunday, May 3 Paul prayed “I always give thanks to God for you because…”

    Surprise someone by writing a prayer of thanksgiving about them with chalk on their sidewalk or driveway using the phrase from Sunday’s story, making sure to complete the sentence with something about them.


    Spring Clean up

    • Choose one of your family’s favorite outdoor spots.
    • Bring trash bags and gloves and pick up whatever trash you find in that area
    • Before you leave, make a chalk drawing or chalk prayer for the next visitors to know that God loves them just as they are!


    Living out Matthew 25

    • In Matthew 25 Jesus tells us that when we help other people who are hungry or lonely or cold or hurting in any way, we are helping Jesus!
    • This week we are helping people who are unable to get their own groceries by picking them up for them through the Hutchinson food shelf. Go to and follow the instructions for proxy pick-up intake.
