Motion :: Week of November 25

Gratitude: Letting others know you see how they’ve helped you.
Series Memory Verse: “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)
Main Point: Always be grateful.
Bible Story: Give Thanks No Matter What | 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and YOU. Then, He sent His Son, Jesus, to that planet to die and be raised to life so He could have a forever relationship with you. Throughout this month, we’ll help kids refocus their attention to all that God has done for them. Because when you know what God has done for you, YOU CAN BE THANKFUL—ALWAYS.

This weekend we learned that we can always be grateful.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 is so important because it teaches us to thank God in every situation we face. God doesn’t need to hear our thanks, but He wants us to develop the habit of being grateful no matter what!

Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and YOU. Then, He sent His Son, Jesus, to that planet to die and be raised to life so He could have a forever relationship with you.

This weekend we remembered how important it is to say thank you.

In our Bible story today Jesus changed 10 men’s lives when He healed them of an awful disease. The men were free from pain and could go home to their families! But only ONE of them stopped to say thank you. It’s so important for us to be like that man and always stop to say thank you. If you don’t say it and you don’t show it, no one will know it! Always remember to say thank you.

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 reFocus, kids can earn fun prizes each week. Kids have to FIND 1 Peter 2:17a in their Bible, RECITE it from memory, and SAY what our series virtue, respect, means!

Main Point: Adjust your attitude.
Bible Story: Parable of the Vineyard Workers | Matthew 20:1-15

Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and YOU.

This weekend we learned that sometimes we need to adjust our attitudes.

We all get stuff we don’t deserve sometimes. It could be good, like getting a gift we don’t deserve. It could also feel unfair, like when a friend turns on us. But just like in today’s story, we learn that things aren’t always fair. This can either work out in our favor or it can make us frustrated. When this happens, we can adjust our attitudes because we always have so much to be grateful for!

Bible Story: A Psalm of Thanksgiving | Psalm 100:1-5

Have you ever paused to think about everything God has done for you? He created a planet that’s perfectly suited for otters and ostriches and YOU.

This weekend we focused on celebrating all that God has done for us.

God has done so many wonderful things for us and it’s important to celebrate all He’s done. That’s what gratitude is all about—letting someone know you see how they’ve helped you. We can celebrate and let God know we’re grateful He’s helped us by praising and thanking Him.

When something sad, upsetting, or disappointing happens, it can be hard to find a reason to celebrate anything. But if our focus is on gratitude, we can still find something to celebrate in almost any situation. Even when things feel tough, we can choose to focus on the good things God is doing and celebrate them.
