Weekend Wrap-Up

1st – 5th Grade

Monthly Bible Verse: Matthew 7:24 “Therefore, anyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
Bible Story: The Wise and Foolish Builders | Matthews 7:24-27
Story Focus: Reading God’s Story
Main Point: I need to read the Bible to understand who God is.
Lesson Overview:

If you have ever played the game MINE*CRAFT you know there are two modes – survival and creative mode. In survival mode you work to keep your health and make sure you have enough to eat, and in creative mode you have the ability to fly with unlimited resources to craft and create.

This weekend we introduced Motion to a third mode called, Story Mode. In Story Mode we will be learning all about God’s story and the part we play in it. We learned when we read God’s story, the Bible, we discover that God is the Rock. God is the only one we can build our life on. He is the only one who can hold us up and keep us strong through hard times.

3 years – kindergarten

Bible Story: The First Church | Acts 2:42-47
Main Point: I Love My Church!
Memory Verse: “Follow God’s example . . . as dearly loved children, and walk in the way of love.” Ephesians 5:1-2a
Lesson Overview:

We celebrated the birthday of someone very special at Animal Adventureland – Rosie Rider! Rosie Rider is the park owner, and she created all of the super fun rides at Animal Adventureland. On her birthday, Rosie wanted to tell all the park guests how much she loves her church. She shared a Bible story with us about the very first church and how they prayed, sang songs, ate meals and did everything together! Just like we can celebrate Rosie on her birthday and tell her how much we love her, we can celebrate and love our church, too!
