We have had a SUPER seven weeks in children’s church learning how to be unique and Godly Superheros. The kids have enjoyed wearing costumes, participating in Super Villain Challenges, and earning points for their own Superhero League.
Over the past several weeks we have been very active!
- Week One we were taught the importance of Loving our Parents – after all, even Superheros have parents or mentors who they listen to. God gave us parents to teach us to follow Jesus and do the right thing!
Week Two we learned to be Slow to Speak – Super-villains love to run their mouths! It often gets them into trouble. If they would listen more and be slow to speak maybe things would turn out differently.
Week Three we found out that God can use bad situations For Good – In Genesis 45 we checked out the story of how Joseph saves his family; we also talked about Bruce Wayne and how he turned the greatest tragedy of his life into something good when he chose to become Batman. Bad things are going to happen, but it’s up to us to give those things to God so that something good can come from them.
Week Four we learned that like the Green Lantern our Power Source must come from somewhere! As Christians, we need to stay close to Jesus, the source of our power.
- Week Five we discovered Secret Lairs – every Superhero has one and every kids should too! We all need a special place where we can get away and talk to God. We encouraged kids to find their own secret lair and use it throughout the week to pray.
Week Six we talked about Gifts. Antman might get laughed at, but he still has some special powers. God has gifted all of us in special ways so that we can serve Him and others. (King Josiah was a pretty awesome example of just how much difference a Godly kid can make!)
This week we explored Team Work. Peter and Cornelius had to figure some things out…The Avengers did too! We might be different but God loves each and every one of us! If we work together and value each other, we can do some pretty amazing things for God.
Make it a point to talk to your child about one of these topics. Ask them how they are gifted or where they like to pray. Do they have a secret lair? If not, maybe you can create one together this week!
We look forward to seeing you next week as we talk about the importance of doing the small stuff. After all, even Superman took the time to save a kitten from a tree!
The reports are in and you have let us know that your kids are singing the songs we sing in Children’s Church at home! We find this to be amazing, wonderful, awesome… and the list goes on. (Bottom line = we are excited!) Some of you have even asked where you can find some of the music we sing. Well, this post is for you! Below you will find the name of a song that we sing in Children’s Church. Click on it and you will be linked to a youtube video or another site from which you can stream the song. We will continue to add to this list so please check back. If there is a song you are looking for that you do not see below, let us know. Have fun worshipping with your children!
We hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July! I know we sure did. We had the opportunity to visit with friends, eat a lot of food, and even watch the fireworks. What a wonderful way to celebrate our freedom.
In children’s church last week we took a moment to talk about that freedom. How amazing is it that we are able to live in a country that is free? Our ancestors were able to travel here and enter this country seeking a better life.
Today, it’s a little harder for people to enter this country. The American Dream still exists, but there is a limit on who can receive it. You may be ineligible if too many people from your country have already entered the U.S., you have a criminal record, or if your paperwork isn’t in perfect order.
How great is it that there are no prequalification’s for entering into God’s family? It doesn’t matter how many people beat you there, how imperfect you are, or what you have done in the past. He will take you as you are. All you have to do is come.
Hope to see you this Sunday!
The last time we were in Children’s Church the kids were learning all about worship. We walked into church thinking we were going to teach them about all the ways God has for us to worship Him. We were in for a huge surprise! When we asked the kids to tell us the correct way to worship God they had a variety of answers. They told us we could pray, sing, dance, praise, get on our knees or sit in a chair or even get to your feet. You can raise your hands or clap them or even use them to play music. Once they blew us away with their answers we were able to teach them something! The kids learned that the word worship means “a show of worth.” We worship God to show Him how much He is worth to us! The kids got a chance to worship in “big church” and I think they did a great job of demonstrating worship!
If you haven’t noticed we have been out of town for the last few Sunday’s. We are now back and excited to see all the kids next Sunday! Don’t forget to stop by and say “HI!”
