Work with parents to commemorate Memorial Day and teach kids about
this important day of remembrance. Invite families to spend an
afternoon at a local cemetery and clean up neglected graves. Bring
work gloves, sunscreen, and bug repellent.
As you work, talk about what Jesus said in John 15:12-13 about
laying down one’s life for friends. Pause to observe the National
Moment of Remembrance, a moment of silence at 3:00 p.m., to honor
those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice.
