Safari :: Week of February 17

MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus loves everyone.
BIBLE VERSE: “Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12 (NIV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus Loves Zaccheus | Luke 19:1-10

This week during the worship experience we played a game to remind us that Jesus loves everyone.

Say, “Let’s play a game together. We are going to pretend you, (your toddler’s name) is a man named Zacchaeus. He is a man we learn about in the Bible. Zacchaeus climbed up a tree so he could see Jesus when He came to town. Instead of climbing a tree, thought, you’ll choose a spot to hide. I will close my eyes while you choose a spot and then I will find you!”

Count to 10 as (your toddler’s name) hides. When you find “Zacchaeus,” say, “Who loved Zacchaeus?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus loved Zacchaeus.” Say, “Who loves everyone?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus loves everyone!”

Jesus loves us all, no matter what, and He will never stop loving us. So get your sweet tooth – and your heart – ready for a super sweet month filled with the good news that JESUS LOVES EVERYONE!

No one else loved the woman who was about to be stoned to death. But Jesus loved her. Can you imagine how that woman felt when Jesus came to her rescue? Even when we feel alone, we can know that Jesus loves us.

Motion :: Week of February 17

KINDNESS: Showing others they are valuable by how you treat them.
Series Memory Verse: Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31 (NIV)
Main Point: Be kind to people who are overlooked.
Bible Story: The Least of These |  Matthew 25:35-40

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Even when we were still sinners, Jesus died for us. Because of God’s great love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus personified kindness in the way He lived and interacted with the people He met. But, as we read the Gospels, we find that Jesus didn’t just model kindness. He commanded it. By treating others the way we want to be treated, we live out the way Jesus taught us to live.

This weekend we learned that we can be kind to people who are overlooked.

Rewind | The Least of These from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

In Matthew 25:35-40, Jesus teaches on kindness. For one reason or another, people are overlooked every day—no one even notices them, much less shows kindness to them. But Jesus says that when we show kindness to one of the least of these, it’s as if we’re showing kindness to Him.Everyone deserves to be treated like they’re valuable, no matter who they are. When wes tart to see people who have needs we can work to show kindness and meet those needs.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • Have you ever received unexpected kindness?
  • Why do you think God wants to show kindness to those who are overlooked?
  • What can you do to be more aware of the needs of others?

 

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 Rewind, kids can earn fun prizes each week. Kids have to FIND Luke 6:31 in their Bible, RECITE it from memory, and SAY what our series virtue, kindness, means!

Zacchaeus made bad choice after bad choice, but Jesus still wanted to be his friend. Jesus loves us even when we do something wrong. We can be unkind. We can not share our things. We can make bad choices. Even when we do all these things, Jesus still loves us.
