But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

Luke 18: 16

Lent IV (March 30)

Season of the Church Year: Lent (Liturgical Color: Purple)
Story in Scripture: Matthew 4: 1-11
Throughout the Season on Lent, these Family Pages will consist of sharing the short story lesson that your child participated in, as well as the image that was used to convey the meaning of this day of preparation. Please hold on to all of the Lent summaries so that you can reflect on them again and again as we prepare for Easter and Jesus’ resurrection. 

“This is the 4th Sunday in the Season of Lent. Remember, Jesus was born as a little baby to his Mother Mary and Father Joseph. When he was a little boy, his parents lost him in the big city of Jerusalem, but they found him in the Temple, teaching. Later, his cousin John baptized him. Today, we will talk about what happened next. 

Jesus went into the desert to discover more about who he was and what his work was going to be. He was there for forty days and forty nights. There was little to drink. One day, he heard a voice from Satan. It said, ’Why don’t you turn one of those stones over there into bread and have something to eat?’ Jesus shook his head and said, ‘No, it is written in scripture that we need more than just bread to eat.’ Satan tried to tempt Jesus in many other ways, but each time, Jesus remembered God’s story and the lessons of scripture. He never believed the things that Satan said. Finally, the voice went away. Jesus went back across the River Jordan and began to do his work.”
