Weekend Wrap-Up

1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Bible Verse: 2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be throughly equipped for every good work.”
Bible Story: I can put my faith in Jesus. :: Matthew 14:22-33
Lesson Overview:

This weekend we learned we can put our faith in Jesus! In Matthew 14:22-33 we read about one of Jesus’ disciples, Peter. Peter saw Jesus walking on the water and said, ‘Lord, if it’s you, tell me to come…’

Peter stepped out of the boat and started walking toward Jesus. While on the water, Peter started to doubt that Jesus could save him when he noticed the wind and waves around him on the water. Sometimes trusting Jesus can be difficult.

We won’t always understand why things happen or why they don’t happen, but we can have faith in Jesus and trust Him with everything that goes on in our lives. God loves us and he wants what is best for us. So trust Him with everything in your life no matter how big or small.

Lesson Overview:

This weekend’s movie in The Great 8 Movie Marathon was called “The Great Race,” a movie about fast cars and praying to Jesus! We watched as Kimmy learned “I Will Pray When I Am Afraid!” after being scared of the loud noises from the race cars racing around the track. Pit crew members Olivia and Guy Handsome shared the Bible story about Jesus walking on water and how Peter called out to Jesus to save him. Kimmy learned that she can always talk to Jesus, or pray to Him, when she is scared or afraid!
