Motion :: Week of July 22

Uniqueness: Discovering who God made you to be so you can make a difference.
Series Memory Verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
Main Point: God made you to love others.
Bible Story: Lydia | Acts 16:11-15

Every person on earth is unique. We have distinct DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made. Because we are uniquely made in God’s image, it’s important for kids to discover more about what that means for them — how they can use their unique traits, gifts, and talents to serve and bring glory to God.

In Acts 16:11-15 we meet a woman named Lydia. Paul and Silas were traveling around and telling people about Jesus. In the city of Philippi, they headed down to the city riverbank where they thought they’d find people worshipping God. While they were there they met Lydia, a wealthy business owner. Lydia used her gift of hospitality to make Paul and Silas feel welcomed. She used her gifts to help others feel loved.

Safari :: Week of July 15

MONTHLY FOCUS: I can be brave.
VERSE FOCUS: “Be strong and brave, do not be afraid. I am the Lord your God.” Joshua 1:9
BIBLE STORY: Josiah the Young King  | 2 Kings 22:1-23:3

This week during the worship experience, we sang a song to remind us that we can be brave.

Say, “Come on over and let’s sing a fun song.” Sing the following to the tune of, “Are You Sleeping?”

I can be brave.

I can be brave.

Yes, I can. Yes, I can.

Because God made me brave.

Because God made me brave.

Yes, He did. Yes, He did.

Repeat a few times, singing in different voices. (fast, slow, underwater, princess, superhero, etc.) Say, “Great singing, everyone. We can be brave because God made us that way!” 


Quest :: Week of July 15

Monthly Focus: Who can do what God wants you to do? (I can do what God wants me to do.)
Bible Story: Young King Josiah | 2 Chronicles 34
Main Point: I can do what’s right.
Memory Verse: God made us to do good works.” Ephesians 2:10 (NCV)

Kids Rock! This summer we’re continuing to learn about people in the Bible who did amazing things while they were still kids. They rocked because they did what God told them to do, and our children can obey God and do great things, too!

In this week’s lesson, Josiah becomes king at just eight years old and leads the people to do what God wants them to.

Josiah was only eight years old when he became king, but he still chose to obey God and do the right thing. Kids can make the choice to do the right thing every time, because kids ROCK!

June and July Memory Verse

Motion :: Week of July 15

Uniqueness: Discovering who God made you to be so you can make a difference.
Series Memory Verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
Main Point: God made you to follow Jesus.
Bible Story: Philip and the Ethiopian Official | Acts 8:26-40

Every person on earth is unique. We have distinct DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made. Because we are uniquely made in God’s image, it’s important for kids to discover more about what that means for them — how they can use their unique traits, gifts, and talents to serve and bring glory to God.

In Acts 8:26-40; we learn more about an encounter between Philip and an official from Ethiopia. As the Ethiopian searched God’s word and had questions about faith, Philip pointed him in the right direction, and showed him that Jesus was the answer to those prophesies from long ago.

God made you to follow Jesus. God wants to have a relationship with us and made a way for that to happen through Jesus. No matter who they are or what they’ve done, God made kids to have a relationship with Him when they believe in Jesus.

The Bring It! Challenge
We want kids to Bring It! to church. The Bring It! Challenge encourages Motion kids to bring themselves, their Bible, and scripture they’ve learned to Motion. Not only can kids be rewarded for bringing it, but the Bring It! Challenge is a fun way to grow and learn more about God and how He wants us to live.

Bring It! Challenge


Quest :: Week of July 8

Monthly Focus: Who can do what God wants you to do? (I can do what God wants me to do.)
Bible Story: Miriam | Exodus 1:22 – 2:10
Main Point: I can protect others.
Memory Verse: God made us to do good works.” Ephesians 2:10 (NCV)

Kids Rock! This summer we’re continuing to learn about people in the Bible who did amazing things while they were still kids. They rocked because they did what God told them to do, and our children can obey God and do great things, too!

In this week’s lesson, Miriam protects her baby brother Moses after their mom puts him in a basket in the Nile River

Miriam watched over her brother in the water and then made sure her mom was the one to help the princess care for baby Moses. God wanted Miriam to protect Moses and she did! God wants us to protect others, too. You’re never too young to protect others, and when you protect others the way God wants you to, you ROCK!
