Motion :: Week of December 1

COMPASSION: Caring enough to do something about someone else’s need.
Series Memory Verse:“God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.” John 3:16, (NIV)
Main Point:God did something about our greatest need.
Bible Story: God Loves the World | John 3:16

God’s compassion for the people He created led to the greatest act of love the world has ever seen. God sent His only Son to make us right with Him. We reflect that compassion when we care about others and show them how much God loves them. That’s the mission God has for each of us!

In John 3:16, God helped a man named Nicodemus understand what God’s love is all about. God knew our greatest need of a savior and did something about it. God gave us Jesus, His one and only Son, to be our savior. God did something about our greatest need for a savior by giving us Jesus, His gift to the world.

God did something about our greatest need. Jesus was God’s gift to the world and we pray that kids start to understand their need for a Savior and put their trust in Jesus.

At dinner tonight, ask, “What is the greatest gift you ever received? How did it make you feel to receive it?”

So gather up all the birthday excitement and Christmas spirit you have, because we are going to party all month long! It’s not just balloons and party hats, though. We are sharing the true story that God gave us His only son, Jesus, and He is worth our best celebration! 

This week, we learned about the time when an angel visited Mary and told her she was going to have a special baby, named Jesus. He would be God’s Son and the savior of the world.

Quest :: Week of November 24

Monthly Focus: Who are you thankful for? (I am thankful for people who help me.)
Bible Story: Good Samaritan | Luke 10:25-37
Main Point: I am thankful for people who help me when I’m hurt.
Memory Verse: “Always give thanks to God.” Ephesians 5:20, NCV

When we stop and notice them, we’ll see that we are surrounded by helpers who deserve a big thank you for all the ways they help us. They are making the world we live in a better place. When we grow up with eyes that see these helpers and a heart that is grateful, showing thankfulness becomes a happy habit. And no matter how young or grown up you are, a little thankfulness goes a long way.

In this week’s lesson, the story of the good Samaritan teaches us about being thankful for the people who help us when we’re hurt.

I am thankful for people who help me when I’m hurt. Preschoolers get boo boos often, and so many people help them when they’re hurt. We can say thank you to all the people who help us when we’re hurt.

As you drive, be on the lookout for helpers (police officers, road workers, food trucks, etc.). When you see a helper, say, “I see a helper!” When you get where you’re going, take time to pray and thank God for all the people who help you.

Motion :: Week of November 24

COOPERATION: Working together to do more than you can do alone.
Series Memory Verse:“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” Ecclesiastes 4:9, (NIV)
Main Point: Work together to point others to Jesus. 
Bible Story: One Body but Many Parts | 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

Cooperation is a spiritual concept that originates with God. God created us to work together in community. Throughout the Bible, we see how God brought people together to accomplish something big for Him. When we work together, we reflect what Jesus envisioned for His followers. Our love for one another can point people to Him.

In 1 Corinthians 12:12-27,  Paul wrote to the church at Corinth about how the people who make up the Church are part of the Body of Christ. Paul talks about how God has given each of us a unique part to play as we share God’s love with others. When we cooperate, we can help others know more about Jesus.

Work together to point people to Jesus. Our kids can learn how to be the church even at a young age. Just think about the impact they could have on the world when they realize that how they work together could impact a person’s relationship with Jesus.

At bedtime, read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27. Together, brainstorm a list of your family and friends and say something special or different about each one.
