Motion :: Week of August 5

1708_SMP_Theme

Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Series Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17A (NIV)
Main Point: Respect: Showing others they are important by what you say and do.
Bible Story: How to Respect | 1 Peter 2:17

God is the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. There is no one else who has the position or power of God. We can’t help but respond to Him with respect. When it comes to people, everyone is important for two reasons: God made them in His image and Jesus died for them. That’s why respect is also a reflection of the character of Christ in us. When we see people like Jesus sees them, we can show everyone they matter to God.

 This week we dug into God’s Word to learn what respect is and what it means to show respect.

Motion :: Week of July 29

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 do good.
Bible Story: The Good Samaritan | Luke 10;25-37

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 1 Corinthians 12 we learn more about the gifts of the Spirit. We each have role to play in this world. God gives each one of us a unique gift through the Holy Spirit to help make a difference in the lives of the people around us.

God made you to do good. God doesn’t give us these special gifts just for us. God has uniquely gifted us to help Him do good in the world so we can help Him change the world and tell others about Him.

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.

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.

Bring It! Challenge


Motion: Week of July 8

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 for an adventure.
Bible Story: Abraham | Genesis 12:1-9

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 Genesis 12, we find a man named Abram, who eventually we come to know as Abraham, the father of God’s people. But long before that, God called Abraham to go on a journey with many unknowns because of a really BIG promise. Abraham was willing to follow God and go wherever He led. In the end, God made good on each of the promises He made to Abraham.

God made you for an adventure. God may not call us on a journey to another country, but at some point, God will call us to do something out of our comfort zone. God made kids unique for whatever adventure comes their way and we want them to learn to trust that God will keep His promises to us, and that no matter what happens.
