Quest :: Week of January 20

Monthly Focus: Who can do anything? (Jesus can do anything.)
Bible Story: Feeding 5,000  ●  Mark 6:31-44
Main Point: Nothing is too hard for Jesus.
Memory Verse: With God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

Children love showing us what they can do. They are full of WATCH THIS moments. And it can be anytxhing – turning in a circle, running and jumping on a pile of pillows, curtseying like a princess, or making their eyebrows go up and down. This month we’ll learn Jesus is the ONE to watch, because JESUS CAN DO ANYTHING!

In this week’s lesson, we learned that Jesus feed over 5,000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish.

Nothing is too hard for Jesus. Feeding all those people seemed an impossible task for the disciples. But, nothing is too hard for Jesus to do. Jesus can do anything.

January Memory Verse
This month our Bible verse tells us God can do anything, so impossible things are possible for God!

Children can recite the verse every week in January to earn a special memory verse card. When your child receives a memory verse card celebrate with them on learning their verse and put the card on their Quest poster.

“With God (point one finger from each hand up)
all things (palms up)
are possible.” (two thumbs up)

Matthew 19:26
(open hands like a book)

Practice this verse together and encourage your child to recite it to their eGroup Leader this week in Quest.


Motion :: Week of January 20

COMMITMENT: Making a plan and putting it into practice.
Series Memory Verse: “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 (NIV)
Main Point: Practice talking about God.
Bible Story: Who do you say I am? | Matthew 16:13-20

January is often a time when we think about new year’s resolutions and what we need to adjust to make the new year, our best year ever. But goals are nothing without a strategy and a way to reach them. The same is true for practicing our faith.

Growing in faith is not something that happens by simply cramming information about the Bible into a our brains. The knowledge in our heads means nothing if we don’t experience what that knowledge can do in their heart. To experience faith, we need to practice it and that takes commitment. We can make a plan and stick to it by committing to practicing faith by reading God’s Word, praying to Him consistently, talking about Him with friends, and living out our faith every day.

This weekend we remembered that we can practice talking about God.

 We can know God better by talking about Him with others. But this isn’t just about talking about Jesus with people who don’t know Him yet. There’s also another important element of talking about God. As we process our growing faith, we’ll have questions and doubts. When we practice talking about God, we learn how to talk through our questions about God with others who believe in Jesus.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • Who can you share with about what God is doing in your life?
  • Who in your life needs to hear about God for the first time?
  • Who can you invite to church?

 

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.

During Work It Out, kids can earn fun prizes each week. Kids have to FIND 1 Timothy 4:8, in their Bible, RECITE it from memory, and SAY what our series virtue, committment, means!

Safari :: Week of January 13

MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus can do anything.
BIBLE VERSE: “With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus Feeds Thousands | Mark 6:31-44

This week in eKidz we sang a song to help us remember Jesus can do anything. Sing the following to the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”:

Jesus can do anything, anything, anything.

Jesus can do anything, oh, yes He can!

Jesus can feed thousands, thousands, thousands.

Jesus can feed thousands, with a little bread and fish.

Jesus can do anything, anything, anything.

Jesus can do anything, oh, yes He can!

Say to your toddler, “You did a wonderful job singing! Jesus fed thousands of people with only five loaves of bread and two fish. If Jesus can feeds thousands of people with only a little food, Jesus can do anything!”
