This week we will ask ourselves, "How does God ask us to be friends with one another?". We answer by understanding that
God wants us to take care of others. We will make connections to Thanksgiving in the past and Thanksgiving currently.  We will talk about our families traditions, and what we do for others this time of year.  We try to teach the boys and girls to be more selfless during the holiday season.
We will also discover the sacrifice God made by giving us his only son. We learn from Jesus that that he teaches us about God's love.
