Hello Families of The Cove!

This month we will be learning about “Using Our Imaginations To Do Something Unique,” where we are looking at what the Bible has to say about creativity. Our memory verse for the month of August is Ephesians 2:10, “We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do.”

When we hear the word “creativity” we respond in a handful of ways.

Many of us get excited. We love everything to do with creativity. We can draw or paint, sing or dance, and LOVE the arts.

Others of us break out into cold sweat thinking about that one art class we had to take in high school.

Still others of us simply ignore it. We think we’re just not creative. Never have been; never will be.

But there’s something about creativity that we all need to remember. We’re not creative because of our talents. We’re creative because that’s how God made us. He designed each of us with a mind to think beyond ourselves and imagine the possibility for—well, anything.

It’s God’s image in us that gives us the capacity to see beyond the ordinary and to understand a dimension of life that a dog or a tree or a whale cannot experience. Our imagination—our creativity—is a reflection of His image.

That’s why we’re taking this month to look at CREATIVITY: using your imagination to do something unique. When your imagination leads you to do something good, to make a unique mark, to find a unique answer or solution, you are being creative.

This month, let’s think about how:

  • God created us in His image
  • Each of us has something in us that expresses who we are

No one else can impact the world the way you can.

We look forward to partnering with you during the month of October as we seek to raise up children who are totally committed to Jesus Christ!

Respect: Showing Others They Are Important By What You Say and Do

This week, we’re discovering:

We’ll return to the book of James. In James 2:1-5 we’ll learn how it doesn’t matter what people look like on the outside. We should respect all people because they are valuable to God.

Our Bottom Line is: Respect others because they are important to God. Everyone has value because they are created in God’s image.

Our memory verse this month is: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a NIV This simple verse is an important reminder that everyone deserves our respect.

Bible Story: Even Stevens (Don’t Show Favoritism) • James 2:1-5

Bottom Line: Respect others because they are important to God.

Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a, NIV

Respect: Showing Others They Are Important By What You Say and Do

This week, we’re discovering:

In James 3:9-12 we learn that our words can be used to glorify God one minute and talk badly about our friends the next. When we’re talking about respect, often it’s our words that we really need to watch!

Our Bottom Line is: Respect others with your words. Our words have power. Let’s use them to value others and treat them with respect.

Our memory verse this month is: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a NIV This simple verse is an important reminder that everyone deserves our respect.

Bible Story: Mighty Mouth (Taming the Tongue) • James 3:9-12

Respect: Showing Others They Are Important By What You Say and Do

This week, we’re discovering:

In 1 Samuel 24, we find David running from King Saul. David had the perfect opportunity to end King Saul’s life, but he trusted God’s timing. David respected King Saul and spared His life.

Our Bottom Line is: Respect those who are in charge, even if they don’t deserve it. Not everyone in authority will deserve our respect all of the time. But God wants us to respect the person’s position of authority and treat him or her with value as one created in God’s image.

Our memory verse this month is: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a NIV This simple verse is an important reminder that everyone deserves our respect.

Bible Story: Saul Pass (David Spares Saul’s Life) • 1 Samuel 24

Bottom Line: Respect those who are in charge, even if they don’t deserve it.

Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a, NIV

Life App: Respect—showing others they are important by what you say and do.

Basic Truth: I can trust God no matter what.

Respect: Showing Others They Are Important By What You Say and Do

This week, we’re discovering:

Paul writes to the new believers in Rome. It wasn’t always easy living under Roman leadership, but in Romans 13:1-5, Paul gives them encouragement and reminds them that God put those people charge for a reason.

Our Bottom Line is: Respect those who are in charge. When you respect those who are in charge, you’re actually showing respect toward God.

Our memory verse this month is: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a NIV This simple verse is an important reminder that everyone deserves our respect.

Bible Story: The Usual Respects (Respect Authority) • Romans 13:1-5

Bottom Line: Respect those who are in charge.

Memory Verse: “Show proper respect to everyone.” 1 Peter 2:17a, NIV

Life App: Respect—showing others they are important by what you say and do.

Basic Truth: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
