Motion :: Week of June 24

Creativity: Imagining what you could do because you are made in God’s image.
Series Memory Verse: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
Main Point: God made you to imagine.
Bible Story: Adam’s First Job | Genesis 2:19-20

From the opening pages of Scripture, we encounter God’s creativity in action. But God is not finished creating! He created people in His image to take care and develop His magnificent creation. Humans are unique in that we reflect God in how we interact with each other and the world around us. That interaction includes God’s creativity. We may not form mountains and oceans, but we create art and music, build cities, solve problems, and innovate technology—all of which starts with the creativity God has placed in us.

In Genesis 2:19-20, we get a glimpse into life for Adam in the garden. One of the first tasks as caretaker of the garden was to name the animals. What a fun job for Adam to imagine the names for the creatures as they passed. Adam’s imagination would be crucial for take care of his responsibility of God’s world.

God made you to imagine. Adam’s job of taking care of the earth has become our job. We need our God-given imagination to solve problems, help people, and create whatever is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities. Imagination is more than creating art and music, but is something God has given us to make a difference in the world.

Bible Story: Creation Story: Adam & Eve | Genesis 1:26 – 2:25

From the opening pages of Scripture, we encounter God’s creativity in action. But God is not finished creating! He created people in His image to take care and develop His magnificent creation. Humans are unique in that we reflect God in how we interact with each other and the world around us. That interaction includes God’s creativity. We may not form mountains and oceans, but we create art and music, build cities, solve problems, and innovate technology—all of which starts with the creativity God has placed in us.

In Genesis 1:26–2:25, we take a closer look at how God created Adam and Eve. God wanted to fill the earth He created with His image, so He formed Adam from the dust of the ground, and formed Eve with Adam’s rib. He created people to bring Him glory as they cared for and developed the earth.

God made each one of us. This is not something to take lightly. Out of everything God could have done, He created each and every person on the planet to be like Him as they interact with each other and with the world. Because God made us, we have value beyond what we do because of who they are as God’s child.

Bible Story: Creation Story: Days 1-5 | Genesis 1:1-25

From the opening pages of Scripture, we encounter God’s creativity in action. But God is not finished creating! He created people in His image to take care and develop His magnificent creation. Humans are unique in that we reflect God in how we interact with each other and the world around us. That interaction includes God’s creativity. We may not form mountains and oceans, but we create art and music, build cities, solve problems, and innovate technology—all of which starts with the creativity God has placed in us.

We kick off the month in Genesis 1:1-25 and look at the beginning. As we look around at the world around us we see the moon and stars, the plants and animals, we can’t help but see the creative beauty in God’s creation. He is the Master Artist and Sculptor. Everything in this world is intricately designed and points to God’s fingerprints in creation.

God made everything. When we see how God created the world around us, we see who we are in light of His grandeur and majesty. God created us apart from the rest of creation when He created us in His image, and when we create, we reflect His image to the world around us.

Finders VI Email Header

COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Series Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)
Main Point: We can work together to change someone’s life.
Bible Story: Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man | Luke 5:17-2

It’s the final episode of Finders VI: The Case of Camp Jupiter! Who’s behind the helmet, what has Elemental Building Co. been up to, and will The Finders can finally begin cooperating to solve these problems together? 

In our eGroups we looked again at the Bible story from Luke 5:17-26 of Jesus healing a paralyzed man. Because the paralyzed man’s friends were willing to work together, and then keeping working together even when their first plan didn’t work, their friend made it to Jesus and was healed! When we are willing to work together with others, we can change someone else’s life, too.

When you choose to work together, you can see God do great things through us. This week, ask your child to share one thing he or she learned during this series about why it’s important to cooperate with others. Pray and thank God for your child and for opportunities to show cooperation:

“God, thank You for giving each of us the privilege of working together to show Your love to the people around us. Help us look for ways to cooperate with others so we can have a bigger impact on other people’s lives. Thank You for giving us friends and family to help us do more than we could do alone. We love You. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Series Memory Verse: “Two people are better than one. They can help each other in everything they do.” Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NIrV)
Main Point: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Bible Story: One Body, Many Parts | 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

It was a very special week in Motion as we took a look back at the Camp Jupiter mystery with a special recap episode of Finders VI: The Case of Camp Jupiter! We got a second chance to find any clues and hints to help us solve this intergalactic mystery ad see what the Finders have been learning about cooperation.

In our eGroups we had an incredible opportunity to work together to do more than we could alone. We partnered with an organization called Hope Reins. Hope Reins uses horseback riding as a way to connect with and minister to kids who are hurting because of difficult situations in their lives.

On their own, one of our Motion kids could make one, or maybe a handful, of birthday cards to celebrate and encourage one of the kids at Hope Reins. But when ALL of the Motion kids at ALL of our Elevation campuses worked together, we were able to make hundreds of giant, super-fun birthday cards to encourage of kids who come to Hope Reins searching for healing and hope. When we worked together, we were able to do much more than we could do alone!
