Motion :: Week of September 30


Main Point: God says I can!
Bible Story: Elijah: The Rainmaker | Luke 22 & Acts 2

No matter how old we are, we each have a common enemy – ourselves. How do kids focus on growing a relationship with God when their own negative thoughts of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement are speaking so loudly in their lives? Each week during the Rise Above series kids will learn how to use God’s Word to rise above the chatter in their lives and to hear God’s voice above all the others.

We’ll follow a pretty average kid named Daniel as he encounters various voices in his life and see how he learns to rise above them.

During eGroup we got in the ring with discouragement as Elijah showed us how to fight against the voices that tell us we can’t.

Elijah struggled with discouragement. He had lost hope in himself and his ability to do what God wanted him to do. But when Elijah cried out to God, God reminded Elijah that He would give Elijah everything Elijah needed to fulfill his calling. When he started to doubt he could do anything right, God told Elijah he could do it, and God says we can do what we need to do, too!

BEGINNING NEXT WEEK IN MOTION!

Next week we start an adventure with Zack and Alex from the Finders who uncover the secrets of a mysterious arcade machine and get pulled into a new world filled with action, adventure, and danger. We’ll learn how to have courage in different situations we face and what it looks like to take the first step, even when something is difficult.

Motion :: Week of September 23


Main Point: God says I’m forgiven.
Bible Story: Peter: The Rock | Luke 22 & Acts 2

No matter how old we are, we each have a common enemy – ourselves. How do kids focus on growing a relationship with God when their own negative thoughts of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement are speaking so loudly in their lives? Each week during the Rise Above series kids will learn how to use God’s Word to rise above the chatter in their lives and to hear God’s voice above all the others.

During eGroup we got in the ring with fear as Peter showed us how to fight against the voices that tell us we aren’t good enough.

Peter struggled with feeling condemnation – the feeling that he wasn’t good enough because of the things he thought and did. But Jesus showed Peter that His forgiveness was greater than any of the wrong things Peter did. Even though Peter made a mistake and chose not to stand by Jesus when Jesus was suffering, Jesus forgave Peter and used Peter to do great things in the early 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 Rise Above, kids can earn fun prizes each week. Kids have to FIND any one of our series verses in their Bible and RECITE it from memory!


Motion :: Week of September 16


Main Point: God says He’s got me.
Bible Story: Esther: The Queen | Esther 5-8

No matter how old we are, we each have a common enemy – ourselves. How do kids focus on growing a relationship with God when their own negative thoughts of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement are speaking so loudly in their lives? Each week during the Rise Above series kids will learn how to use God’s Word to rise above the chatter in their lives and to hear God’s voice above all the others.

We’ll follow a pretty average kid named Daniel as he encounters various voices in his life and see how he learns to rise above them.

Daniel remembered God’s promise from Joshua 1:9 that says ‘be strong and courageous.’ When he remembered what God said, that gave him the courage to face the bully. 

During eGroup we got in the ring with fear as Esther showed us how to fight against the voices that tell us we aren’t going to be okay.

Esther had every reason to feel fear. She could have feared Hamaan because of the way he was attacking her people. She surely feared the possibility of being killed for approaching the king. But when Esther faced fear, she had to choose to trust God to protect her. She had to believe that He would guide her to say and do the right thing to save her people, and God did! When she wasn’t sure she was going to be okay, Esther learned to trust that God had her situation under control.
