Good morning my friends! Happy Sunday

This weeks lesson topic is: 

FATHER'S DAY

Confident: Father God has faith in you

 

WOW!!!!! YOU, he has faith in YOU!!!!!!! All because you are the one and only YOU. Let's give him thanks. Today as we honour our “earthly fathers” lets also honour our heavenly father. Make a “Fathers Day Card” for him. Decorate, draw, write encouraging words, or perhaps thank him for how he's moved in your life!!!!!

Connected:  You can let God’s faith in You be the faith you live by.

With a sibling/family member,etc..... make up an obstacle coarse. One person closes their eyes while the other one has to either hold the person's hand, or tell them how to move to avoid the obstacles. Just as we have to put our faith in God with ALL things (even when we cannot see where he's leading us), we have to put our faith in our partner leading us through this coarse. See the example below and make your own coarse. Have fun!!!!!!

Powerful: What is God believing in your for? That you’ll reveal to others how Good God is!!! Share Jesus, Love Like Jesus, and you’ll live the life God believes that you can live!

 

During a time of soaking ask God “What are you believing in me for???”

(I suggest the song “faith” by Elevation Worship or “this we know” by Vertical Worship”)

Make sure to have a pen/paper and markers/crayons ready to write or draw what he says to you.

If it's put on your heart, please share this with someone-reveal to them how good God is

For parents: June 21

Reflection:

There are a number of Scriptures that show what we are trying to learn:

 

Luke 5:1-11- Peter’s conversion moment -overwhelmed by the miracle working holy power of God revealed in Jesus, Peter doesn’t feel worthy — But Jesus believes in him!
John 17:18-24 where Jesus says, as the father sends me so I send you

Luke 11;11-12 The passage about the “scorpion instead of bread”….where Jesus says,“you who are evil, know how to give good gifts, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to any who ask…

The story that I think I’ll highlight is Peter’s conversion moment: Luke 5:1-11 overwhelmed by the miracle working holy power of God revealed in Jesus, Peter doesn’t feel worthy — But Jesus believes in him!

 

~when you think of stories in the bible about the Fathers Faith in someone or something what comes to mind???? Why not take a minute and soak on that? Then, share this scripture with your kids

HOSPITALITY ITS A GOD THING!

First- lets start off by reading the Key Verse. Read it out loud once, then whisper it the second time. :

 Hospitality / serving

 

Now let's READ it!!

Bible Story:

2 Kings 4:9-11 The woman who makes a room for Elisha

Luke 24:13-34 Jesus meets some disciples on the road to Emmaus.

Confident: Hospitality is a God Thing!

 

Jesus Bingo Card. In the blank spots on the card below, come up with your own ideas of how you can be hospitable!!! You may have to wait until COVID is over to do some of them, that's ok.

Click the attachment to download your Jesus Bingo Card. 

Connected: God uses hospitality to reveal His presence to others.

 

Make a card that has “encouraging words” and deliver to random person that lives in your community Just as we have given prophetic words to people in our Selah Church family that has blessed them, we would LOVE to see the same happen in our community

Powerful: The Bible encourages us to “always be eager to practice hospitality” Romans 12:13

 

Place setting.

make a snack for your family, or for a party for stuffies. Use the place setting template to place the dishes in proper 'host' setting.

For parents: June 14

Reflection:

I both love people with the gift of Hospitality! Those who are eager to make a place for you in their lives, at their tables, within their homes. Today we want our kids to see that God loves to use the gift of hospitality to reveal himself… It fun too that the references scriptures makes to hospitality (see below) both include the invitation to practice hospitality and to accept the hospitality of others as well! Love it! Let’s think of simple ways we can inspire and active the gift of hospitality and our capacity to practice it and receive it from others! Remember, “Hospitality” it’s a God Thing!

 

 

 

1 Peter 4:10 [Full Chapter]

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.

 

 

1 Peter 4:9 [Full Chapter]

Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.

 

Matthew 10:10

Don’t carry a traveler’s bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick. Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve to be fed.

 

Matthew 25:38

Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?

 

Luke 10:7

Don’t move around from home to home. Stay in one place, eating and drinking what they provide. Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve their pay.

 

 

Romans 12:13

When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.

 

 

Hebrews 13:2

Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!

This weeks lesson topic is: 

WHAT WOULD YOU ASK FOR ? GOD LOVES IT WHEN WE CHOOSE WISDOM

First- lets start off by reading the Key Verse. Read it outloud once, then whisper it the second time. :

 

God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be

wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and

he freed us from sin. 1 Corinthians 1:30

 

Now let's READ it!!

Bible Story: 1 Kings 3:!-15…. Solomon Prays for wisdom

Confident: God made Jesus to be wisdom itself.

 

Soaking time- Soaking: Soak to song. Chris Tomlin “ I will rise”

Then ask God to highlight a parable or story we've learned. Think of last year and all the parables we've learned. Which one is your favorite? Parables give us wisdom

Connected:  It pleases God when we seek after and hunger for wisdom.

see1 Kings 3:10

 

Make a pair of binoculars out of toilet paper rolls, and then go on a scavenger hunt.

There will be 10 pieces of paper hidden around your area. Use your new binoculars to find them. Each paper will have an example of wisdom.

***** Parents Read *****

ahead of time, make up slips of paper and either write the following words or draw a picture of them and then hide them around the room

Grandparents

bible

prayer

God

others who've done it before

Sunday school teacher/pastor

Books

those who love you

Powerful: God’s wisdom brings us into perfect communion with God!

For parents: June 7

Reflection:

My grandfather would often get me to answer this question, “Who is the wisest boy in the class?” And the answer I had been trained to give was this, “The one who behaves himself” … I don’t know if it was because of grandpa’s question or just something God placed deep within me, but as a young teen, the story that we highlight today from 1st Kings, along with the book of Ecclesiastes, were among my favourite Bible stories and books. Why? I just had a hunger for wisdom. Solomon’s dream in 1st Kings felt like this incredible “Ask God for anything you want and He will give it to you”. Kinda like the story of Genie’s lantern—except you only get one wish. Think about, if God was talking to you and said this, “What do you want, ask and I will give it to you.” What would you ask for…..? It’s a crazy thought.

 

Young Solomon asked for “wisdom”. Mind blowing! So much so it became a desire of mine from a very early age. I wanted to seek after and pursue wisdom” After all the Bible told me clearly, ”Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding” Proverbs 4:6-7. So when Paul says that God, “made [Jesus] to be wisdom itself” …. Wow! In our quest for wisdom, how does God direct us? Towards JESUS!

Good morning my friends! Happy Sunday

This weeks lesson topic is: 

 PENTECOST SUNDAY!!!!!

First- lets start off by reading the Key Verse. Read it outloud once, then whisper it the second time. :

 “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” Luke 24:49

 

Now let's READ it!!

Bible Story: READ: Pentecost Acts 2

Confident: God promised followers of Jesus the Holy Spirit. And God will give Holy Spririt to you!

 

Soaking time- play “the blessing video” . Look at all the folowers of Jesus. Feel the holy spirit through song.

Connected:    We get to be “baptized in the Holy Spirit” just like Jesus was

 

Baptism puzzle – see attached. Print on cardstock and cut apart, or have kids color then cut peices apart.

Powerful: There was sound, “the roaring of a mighty wind”.There was a physical sign, “tongues of fire” over peoples heads. God sometimes shows up in powerful “real” and “tangible” ways to let us and others know how real He is!

Flame headband craft.

 

Print attached sheet. Cut out al the peices. Use a glue stick or stapler) to attach the headband together. Put the flames on top of eachother and then gle to the headband.. “tongures of fire” over your head

God want to fill every believer “with power from heaven”.

For parents: May 31

Reflection:

I am so glad to be counted among those who will spend their lives “waiting on God” so that I too might experience His Presence, Power and Love in real and tangible ways because of my devotion to Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit. May some of your children, speak in tongues for the fist time, or encounter God in a way more powerful than ever before. Or may they simply rest in His presence and wait on Him, knowing, what God promises. God will do.

This weeks lesson topic is: 

BODY OF CHRIST: YOU AND ME!

First- lets start off by reading the Key Verse. Read it outloud once, then whisper it the second time. :

And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over

everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way! Ephesians 1:22-23 NIV

 

Now let's READ it!!

Bible Story: READ: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

Confident: We are the hands, feet, eyes, ears, mouth and heart of Jesus in the world!

 

Print off cube/block activity. Color the blocks and assemble.

Every morning, you can use this cube as a daily devo. Pray and ask God “What body part are you going to use today?”

Connected:   It’s Jesus who creates the “body” and helps us to help others to keep growing. **

 

Watch one or both of the following vides. Isn't it amazing how we can use things to keep growing, when normally would just throw out?

Powerful: We are “THE FULLNESS OF HIM WHO FILLS EVERYTHING IN EVERY WAY!

Find an empty clear container like a flower vase/jar/etc....then find and object that you have a lot of. Eg: Lego peices, elastice, marbles, etc.... use them to fill the contariner all the way to the top. . Is it full? Is there room for more? Dump all of the objects out. Now take that same container anf fill it with water. The bibile tells us he is the living water. Now, does it look like there is room for more? Is it now more full?? That's what he does. He fills us so there's only room for him.

**we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of the body, the church.  He makes the whole body fit together perfectly.  As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. Ephesians 4:15-16,
