Motion :: Week of August 17

How did Jesus define church? Does going to church really matter? Is it worth sticking with for the rest of my life? We’ll help kids answer these important questions in Big Church!

This week, we tuned into the Loop Show to learn about some of the places we can gather with friends and family. We took a look at 1 Corinthians 12:26-27 to learn that we are the body of Christ — God’s Church — and we all have an important part to play!

Think about how the different parts of your body work together.  All the parts of your body work together to help you, and each part has specific jobs. As the Church, we should function like one big body. When we all do the jobs God has called us to do, and when we work together to make church a wonderful, welcoming place, people will naturally want to be a part of it.

At bedtime this week, read 1 Corinthians 12:26-27 and pray together. Pray that your child would realize they are part of the Body of Christ — God’s Church! Pray they’d always feel a strong desire to gather with others in church as part of God’s family.
