Our Memory Verse for May comes from Galatians 6:9.

 

In Galatians 6:9, we read, “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up” (NIrV).

 

 

 

Determination is a response of the character of God.           

Throughout Scripture, we can discover that God has been faithful to His people. He rescued them from slavery in Egypt. He sent Jesus to rescue us from our sin. He remained faithful to the early church as they spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. When we see how God gave His people what they needed to continue following Him, we can respond with determination believing that God will give us what we need to finish what we start.

Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to help us have determination.

When Jesus gave His disciples the incredible mission of spreading the message of the Gospel throughout the world, He didn’t make them do it alone. Instead, He sent the Holy Spirit to empower them to show faith and determination in the face of whatever might happen along the way. When we put our faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit empowers us to finish what we start.

We think it’s important for us to help our kids and families discover more about determination—deciding it’s worth it to finish what you started.

Our Memory Verse for May comes from Galatians 6:9.

In Galatians 6:9, we read, “Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up” (NIrV). When Paul wrote this verse to the church at Philippi, he encouraged the followers of Jesus to show determination and keep doing good. We may not see results right away, but in time, God will help us see that finishing what we started was worth all of the effort.

Let’s see how determination shows up in the early church and the first followers of Jesus as they worked to accomplish the mission He had for them.

 

 

PARENT CUE

 

May 7TH GOD TIME WEEK 1

 

WEEK 1 We start our discussion about determination in Acts 3 and 4. Peter and John are arrested for healing a man and teaching about Jesus. They are brought before the Sanhedrin where they tell them to stop talking about Jesus or face severe consequences. Peter and John show determination as they proclaim that nothing can keep them from talking about Jesus.

Bottom Line: Keep going even when it gets hard. Life will be difficult. As much as we might try, we can’t escape hardships. But in those times, we can trust God to give us what we need to show determination and keep going.

 

MAY 14TH GOD TIME WEEK 2

 

WEEK 2 In Acts 10, Peter was a Jewish follower of Jesus. Cornelius was a Roman commander. These two were unlikely friends even in the best of circumstances. But through a couple of visions, these two men were about to cross paths. And through this meeting, Peter discovered the mission Jesus gave the disciples was way bigger than he originally thought.

Bottom Line: Keep going even when the job is bigger than you think. There are times we start a job and soon realize that it will be a much larger endeavor. Our first instinct might be to give up all together, but we need to keep going. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we can push through and show determination right up until the end.

 

MAY 21ST GOD TIME WEEK 3

 

WEEK 3 In Ephesians 6:10-18, we read a portion of a letter Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus. The early church is feeling attacked from all sides, and Paul encourages them by reminding them how the Holy Spirit can help them. We have armor that stand against anything that we might face in this world.

Bottom Line: God gives you what you need to keep going. We pray that through this lesson, kids will realize all they have available to them right now to help them show determination when they feel like giving up.

 

MAY 28TH GOD TIME WEEK 4

 

WEEK 4 Finally, we head to Revelation 21:1-8, 22-27 and 22:1-5. John’s vision of the New Heaven and New Earth is an encouragement to anyone facing trials in their life. Through Jesus, we have the opportunity to spend forever with God in a world where there is no sorrow or pain or suffering and where our hope in Jesus is fully realized.

Bottom Line: Keep going because God knows the end of the story. Showing determination in the face of difficult situations is never easy. However, because of Jesus we have a hope that God will make all things new and someday everything will make sense once and for all. God does know the end of the story, and we can trust Him no matter what.

Hello, First Look Friends!

Kids Rock! But, you knew that, didn’t you? You’re surrounded by rockin’ kids all the time! We’re excited to celebrate kids with a rocking good time this summer. 

Throughout the summer, our preschoolers will be introduced to people in the Bible who did amazing things while they were still kids. They rocked because they did what God wanted them to do, and our preschoolers can do that too.

In June, we’ll hear the stories of Jesus in the temple, young Samuel learning to listen to God, and two stories of young David. We’ll learn how David was chosen to lead and be king when he was just a kid, and then how he was brave and defeated a giant with just a sling and a stone.

Psalm 139:14New King James Version (NKJV)

14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.

 

 

 

Creativity is a reflection of the character of God.     

From the opening pages of Scripture, we encounter God’s creativity in action. With words, Let there be light, the poem of creation unfolds as light gives way to time, oceans and mountains form, galaxies are set in motion, and the earth is filled with birds, fish, and every creature imaginable. But God is not finished creating. God decided that He wanted His image to populate the earth. He created people in His image to take care and develop His magnificent creation. Humans are unique in that we reflect God in how we interact with each other and the world around us. That interaction includes God’s creativity. We may not form mountains and oceans, but we create art and music, build cities, solve problems, and innovate technology—all of which starts with our God-given creativity.                                                                                                                      

Jesus showed us creativity in action.

Jesus was the Word that spoke God’s creation into existence at the beginning of time. And when Jesus arrived on planet earth to fulfill God’s plan to rescue humanity, that same creativity was evident in every interaction we read throughout Scripture. Through stories, Jesus could explain something difficult or confusing about the Kingdom of God. With unconventional materials, Jesus healed the sick and hurting. With the right question, He could point to His disciples and the religious leaders what is most important to God. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus showed us the difference we can make in the world through creativity.

Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus showed us the difference we can make in the world through creativity.

We think it’s important for us to help our kids and families discover more about Creativity—imagining what you could do because you are made in God’s image.

Our Memory Verse for June comes from Psalm 139:14.

In Psalm 139:14, we read, How you made me is amazing and wonderful. I praise you for that (NIrV). Through this Psalm, David acknowledges God’s continued provision for his life. He worships God for His care and concern for even the smallest aspects of life. Being created in God’s image, means that we are special compared to the rest of creation. We reflect God in amazing and wonderful ways.

As we help kids discover more about God’s creativity, we head to the beginning—Genesis—and learn more about God’s creativity in the creation of the world.

 

PARENT CUE

 

JUNE 4TH GOD TIME WEEK 1

WEEK 1
We kick off the month in Genesis 1:1-25 and look at the beginning. As we look around at the world around us we see the moon and stars, the plants and animals, we can’t help but see the creative beauty in God’s creation. He is the Master Artist and Sculptor. Everything in this world is intricately designed and points to God’s fingerprints in creation.

 

Bottom Line: God made everything. When we see how God created the world around us, we see who we are in light of His grandeur and majesty. The psalmist writes, What are human beings that you [God] think about them? (Psalm 8:4, NIrV). God created us apart from the rest of creation when He created us in His image, and when we create; we reflect His image to the world around us.

 

JUNE 11TH GOD TIME WEEK 2

 

WEEK 2
In Genesis 1:26–2:25, we take a closer look at how God created Adam and Eve. God wanted to fill the earth He created with His image, so He formed Adam from the dust of the ground, and formed Eve with Adam’s rib. He created people to bring Him glory as they cared for and developed the earth.

Bottom Line: God made you. This is not something to take lightly. Out of everything God could have done, He created each and every person on the planet to be like Him as they interact with each other and with the world. We pray that kids discover that how God made them is unique and wonderful. Because God made them, they have value beyond what they do because of who they are as God’s child.

 

JUNE 18TH GOD TIME WEEK 3

 

WEEK 3
In Genesis 2:19-20, we get a glimpse into life for Adam in the garden. One of the first tasks as caretaker of the garden was to name the animals. What a fun job for Adam to imagine the names for the creatures as they passed. Adam’s imagination would be crucial for take care of his responsibility of God’s world.

Bottom Line: God made you to imagine. Adam’s job of taking care of the earth has become our job. We need our God-given imagination to solve problems, help people, and create whatever is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities. We pray that kids will discover that imagination is more than creating art and music, but is something that God has given them to make a difference in the world.

 

JUNE 25TH GOD TIME WEEK 4

 

WEEK 4
Finally, we head to Genesis 3:1-23 and find out what happened when Adam and Eve decided to do what they wanted to do instead of following God’s plan for them. Adam and Eve had one rule: don’t eat fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. But the serpent tempts them, and they decided to give into the temptation so they could become like God. And in a moment, everything changed. All that was perfect was now broken. Thankfully, although the consequences for Adam and Eve were severe, God never gave up on having a relationship with His creation.

Ephesians 2:10, We are God’s creation.

 

 

Uniqueness is a reflection of the character of God.  

In Deuteronomy 6:4, Moses tells the Israelites, “Israel, listen to me. The LORD is our God. The LORD is the one and only God.” (NIrV)

No one is like our God. And God created people in His image. Every single person on earth is unique. We have DNA, personalities, experiences, and relationships that make us different from each other. This makes us uniquely wired and wonderfully made.    

Only Jesus could rescue us.

 

july

 

 

Jesus, as the Son of God, was fully God and fully man. No one else before or since has been able to make that claim. Jesus was uniquely positioned to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. He alone could live the perfect life, die a human death, yet be raised to life again. And because of that, we can now experience a renewed relationship with God and live with Him forever.

Because we are uniquely made in God’s image, we think it’s important for us to help our kids and families discover more about what that means. This month, we take a closer look at the idea of uniqueness—discovering who God made you to be so you can make a difference.

Our Memory Verse for July comes from Ephesians 2:10.

In Ephesians 2:10, we read, We are God’s creation. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good works. Long ago God prepared these works for us to do. (NIrV) God has a plan for each of us. He invites us into the work He’s been doing in the world since the beginning of time to bring people to Him. God made us to be part of that!

As we help kids discover more about the way God uniquely created them, we’ll look at some people in the Bible and find out how God used their uniqueness to help Him change the world.

July 2nd God Time Week 1

 

 

WEEK 1 We kick off the month in 1 Samuel 17 and rediscover the familiar story of David and Goliath. David was the newly anointed king of Israel. He saw that Goliath was bullying God’s people, and he knew that God would help him defeat the giant. Instead of wearing the typical armor, he decided to use what God gave him through his experience as a shepherd. With a rock and a sling, he knocked Goliath to the ground and defeated the Philistines.

Bottom Line: God made you to be you. God uniquely made each and every one of us. On top of that, God’s given us unique experiences that we can use to help others. We pray that kids will understand how their unique story can impact the world for God.

 

 

July 9th God Time Week 2

 

WEEK 2 In Genesis 12, we find a man named Abram, who eventually we come to know as Abraham, the father of God’s people. But long before that, God called Abraham to go on a journey with many unknowns because of a really BIG promise. Abraham was willing to follow God and go wherever He led. In the end, God made good on each of the promises He made to Abraham.

Bottom Line: God made you for an adventure. God may not call us on a journey to another country, but at some point, God will call us to do something out of our comfort zone. We pray that kids will learn to trust that God will keep His promises to us, and that no matter what happens, He made them unique for whatever adventure comes their way.

 

July 16th God Time Week 3

 

 

WEEK 3 In Acts 8:26-40; we learn more about an encounter between Philip and an official from Ethiopia. As the Ethiopian searched God’s word and had questions about faith, Philip pointed him in the right direction, and showed him that Jesus was the answer to those prophesies from long ago.

Bottom Line: God made you to follow Jesus. God wants to have a relationship with us and made a way for that to happen through Jesus. This week, we pray that kids will realize that no matter who they are or what they’ve done that God made them to have a relationship with Him when they believe in Jesus.

 

July 23rd God Time Week 4

 

WEEK 4 Next, we head to Acts 16:11-15 and meet a woman named Lydia. Paul and Silas were traveling around and telling people about Jesus. In the city of Philippi, they headed down to the city riverbank where they thought they’d find people worshipping God. While they were there they met Lydia, a wealthy business owner. Lydia used her gift of hospitality to make Paul and Silas feel welcomed. She used her gifts to help others feel loved.

Bottom Line: God made you to love others. God has given each of us gifts that we can use to show love to others. We pray that kids will realize that part of what it means to be created in God’s image includes reflecting His love to the people in the world around them.

 

July 30th God Time Week 5

 

WEEK 5 Next, we head to 1 Corinthians 12 and learn more about the Gifts of the Spirit. We each have role to play in this world. God gives each one of us a unique gift through the Holy Spirit to help make a difference in the lives of the people around us.

Bottom Line: God made you to do good. God doesn’t give us these special gifts just for us. He gives them to us, so we can help Him change the world and tell others about Him. We pray that through this passage, kids will start to search for and discover how God has uniquely gifted them to help Him do good in the world.
