Series Memory Verse: Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
Bible Story: A Baby and a Bush, Exodus 1:8-14, 22; 2:1-15, 3:1-15
Main Point: Jesus is power and love

This week we kicked off 2015 with a brand new series called The Power of Same. We’re going to be talking about good habits and how there is power in doing the same things.

We’ll hear each week from AstroHost, as he tells us of the mysteries of space. Check out Episode 1:

We looked at the life of Moses and how God demonstrated both His power and love to the Israelites by taking care of them and, eventually, setting them free. It’s that same power and love that we put our faith in today.

Talk with your family about habits that you have and which ones you can add/improve in this new year. Also, visit http://beginagainchallenge.com/ to participate with the rest of the church in the Begin Again Challenge!

Lesson Overview

Merry Christmas from everyone at Sprinkle and Spice and Everything Nice bakery! Our Quest friends visited the bakery one last time before the shop closed for the holidays. And with Christmas almost here, the chefs were busier than ever finishing the last cookie order for Candy Cane Cookies.

 

Chef Spice learned he should never lose his joy because God loves us! God sent Jesus to save the world because He loves everyone so much. Because God loves us, we can always have joy! Chef Spice and the Pastry Chef finished baking the Candy Cane Cookies with joyful attitudes!

Series Memory Verse: I Corinthians 1:10, “I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
Bible Story: David & Goliath, I Samuel 17:32-50
Main Point: Teammates use their gifts

It’s time for the grand finale of Warehouse 110! Without any further adieu, here it is:

What a conclusion! But now we are worried about what’s up with Dani! You’ll have to wait for the next Finders series to find out!

Our main point this week is an important one – teammates use their gifts. Any time you’re a part of a team, it’s important to contribute. That starts with knowing the unique gifts and abilities God has given you.

This weekend in Motion, we took a simplified spiritual gifts assessment that created some fantastic conversations and we wanted to give your family the opportunity to continue those.

Click on the links below for the eGroup files we used this past weekend. This activity will help you gain insight into the gifts God has given you and the members of your family and then talk about how those can be used in the various teams you’re a part of.

Lesson Overview
We were busy baking this weekend in the kitchen at Sprinkle and Spice and Everything Nice bakery! But it wasn’t all candy canes and goody goody gumdrops for Chef Spice and his assistant, the Pastry Chef. With another kitchen mishap on our hands, Chef Sprinkle was there to save the day once again!

 

Chef Spice learned he should never lose joy when things are hard. Even though the journey to Jesus was long and hard for the wide men, they didn’t lose their joy! After hearing the Bible story, Chef Spice decided to have joy and he and the Pastry Chef baked up some delicious Gingerbread Man Cookies!

Cookie of the Day Recipe Card
Children collected another Cookie of the Day recipe card to put in their Sprinkle Family Recipe Book. This weekend’s Cookie of the Day was Gingerbread Man Cookies. Make Gingerbread Man Cookies this week with your family and send us a picture of your own chefs!

Memory Verse
Each weekend as we help the chefs in the kitchen we will learn how we can have joy through the story of Jesus’ birth. God’s Word says:

Always be joyful. (point to smiling face)
Never stop praying. (prayer hands)
Give thanks (point up)
no matter what happens. (spread arms wide)
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18a (NIrV)

We can have joy in all we do, whether we are baking Christmas cookies, cleaning our room, or serving others. Join us in helping your child learn this verse.
