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 was able to remember that no matter what, God says we’re His. He created us, He loves us, and He calls us His sons and daughters! Even when we’re feeling insecure, God says we’re His!
During eGroup we got in the ring with insecurity as Moses showed us how to fight against the voices that tell us we don’t have what it takes.
Moses didn’t think he had what it took to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. He didn’t feel important enough to talk to Pharaoh and he wasn’t a good communicator. But when God created Moses, God already knew exactly what He would ask Moses to do one day, so He created Moses with everything Moses could need to do his job. When we are doing what God wants us to do, we don’t have to wonder if we’re good enough; He made us and gave us exactly what we need!
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!
