Motion :: Week of December 2

Generosity: Making someone’s day by giving something away.
Series Memory Verse: “Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” 1 Timothy 6:18 (NIV)
Main Point: Because God gave, I can give.
Bible Story: God Gave Us Jesus | 1 John 4:9-11

Every good and perfect gift comes from God. In fact, generosity is at the very core of God’s character— He even gave us His own son, Jesus! Jesus showed unwavering generosity as He traded His life for ours. And, because God gave us Jesus and Jesus gave His life, we can be generous towards others. Not only that, but when we are generous towards others, we prove that we love God by loving the people He loves.

This weekend we learned that because God gave, we can give, too!

The most important thing about the Christmas season is to remember that God gave the gift of His Son to everyone. He came so that everyone who would ever live on earth could know Him. God gave us the biggest gift of all, and because God gave, we can give to others, too.

At dinner this week, ask:

  • When is it easy for you to be generous? When is it difficult?
  • How do you feel when someone gives you a gift? Does it make it easier to give knowing you can share that feeling?

 

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 The Big Give, kids can earn fun prizes each week. Kids have to FIND 1 Timothy 6:9, in their Bible, RECITE it from memory, and SAY what our series virtue, generosity, means!

Quest :: Week of November 25

Monthly Focus: Who can you thank for everything? (I can thank God for everything.)
Bible Story: The Lord is My Shepherd ● Psalm 23
Main Point: I am thankful God gives me what I need.
Memory Verse: “I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart.” Psalm 111:1 (ESV)

God made people, and called them very good. Then God protected his people with rules to keep them safe. God talked to his people when they prayed to Him. God took care of His people and gave them what they needed. Because of all the great things God has done for us, we have a lot to be thankful for.

In this week’s lesson, God takes care of us like a shepherd takes care of his sheep.

Recipe for Thanks | The Lord is my Shepherd from Elevation Church eKidz on Vimeo.

God is like a shepherd who gives us everything we need. He gives us the Bible, He tells us how to talk to Him through prayer, He gives us family to helps us, and He gives us food and water to eat and drink. We should always be thankful to God for giving us what we need.
