Jesus is Always with Me
Have the child choose five things in the room to bring to you.  Place the items in a small area on the floor and place a small blanket over the items.
Ask the child:
- Can the objects be seen?
- Are the objects still there even though they can't be seen?
- How do you know that the objects are still there?
Remove the blanket.  Tell the child:  "This week's memory verse says, 'When I am afraid, I will trust in you.'"  Even though we can't see Jesus, we know He is always with us."

With the objects gathered, turn this activity into a memory game.  Without the child watching, remove one object.  Have the child figure out which object is missing.  For greater difficulty, remove more than one object or add similar items.
