Harmony: Together is Better

Over the past school year we’ve enjoyed taking kids through a contextual look at God’s One Big Story. We’ve traveled through the Bible covering the familiar stories of Abraham and Joseph, Moses and King David. We made it all the way to Jesus, Paul, and the start of the early church.

As the church started, no longer were there just a handful of disciples. These were growing congregations filled with people from all walks of life. And needless to say, they didn’t always get along. They disagreed and argued. They had a hard time forgiving and accepting each other.  At times, they even found it difficult to keep worshiping together.

Several of the apostles began writing about how to live together as believers. These writings are not presented in the form of a story. They are letters. They are sermons. Delivered by people and for people. They are historic, but they are not really a story. But we think it’s important that kids experience those letters and sermons too. So to help illustrate these important truths, we’ve wrapped them in a summer-long story about friendship. This month, we’re continuing our look at what the New Testament letters have to say about friendship.

Friendship is treating others the way you want to be treated. Each week, we’ll take a look at a “one another” principle that gives us a framework for loving others the way God loved us. Because these verses are short, we suggest that you take this summer to memorize each one.

This month, let’s think about how:

(1)  Friendship is a reflection of the love that God shows us.

(2)  Friendship is a response to the love we experience through Jesus.

(3)  Friendship goes beyond the people in our immediate circle.

This week, we’re discovering:

We will take a look at the importance of worshipping together. The writer of Hebrews talks about this in Hebrews 10:24-25.

Our Bottom Line is: Friends worship with each other. Life can be hard sometimes. When we are connected to a community of friends who can encourage us and remind us of God’s love, it makes those times a little easier. We shouldn’t give up meeting together with our Small Group and friends at church.

This week’s memory verse is, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25, NIV. We all need some encouragement now and again. When keep meeting together, we find some great opportunities to keep cheering each other up. 

Bible Story: Friends Worship as One (worship with one another) • Hebrews 10:24-25

Bottom Line: Friends worship with each other.

Memory Verse: “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help when trouble comes.” Proverbs 17:17, NIrV

Life App: Friendship—treating others the way you want to be treated.

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

This week, we’re discovering:

In week 3, kids will discover how they can encourage each other. In 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Paul tells the church that they should build each other up in how they speak to one another.

Our Bottom Line is: Friends encourage each other. We have hope because of Jesus. When we share that hope with others, we can encourage them to keep going even when life is tough.

This week’s memory verse is, “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV This is a great reminder of why it’s important for us to encourage each other.

Bible Story: Fan Club (encourage one another) • 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Bottom Line: Friends encourage each other.

Memory Verse: “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help when trouble comes.” Proverbs 17:17, NIrV

Life App: Friendship—treating others the way you want to be treated.

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

(3)  Friendship goes beyond the people in our immediate circle.

This week, we’re discovering:

We’ll learn about one of Paul’s teachings on forgiveness, found in Colossians 3:13. At some point, one of our friends will let us down. We should let go of what we’re holding against them and forgive them.

Our Bottom Line is: Friends forgive each other. We should forgive others because God forgave us first. Putting up with each other means we don’t hold onto the things others do that have hurt us. When we forgive them, we get to show them how much God loves them too.

This week’s memory verse is, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Colossians 3:13, NIV God forgave us first. We should show forgiveness to others.

(3)  Friendship goes beyond the people in our immediate circle.

This week, we’re discovering:

We take a look at Romans 12:16 and what Paul said to the church at Rome about accepting one another regardless of their differences.

Our Bottom Line is: Friends accept each other. It’s easy to see how different we are from people around us. God accepts us as we are. When we accept others, we get to help them see how much God loves them too.

This month’s key verse is, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.” Proverbs 17:17, NIV It’s easy to be friends when everything is great. But friends should also stick together when life gets hard. That’s when friendships matter most.

July in The Cove

Hello Families of The Cove!

There are a lot of exciting things happening this month in The Cove.

First, this Sunday, July 6, is “Transition Sunday.” As a result, there are two groups that will be in a new location this Sunday.

Students who are entering 6th grade in the fall will be transitioning to our Middle School ministry. If you are a parent of a student starting 6th grade, they will be meeting during 2nd Service (10:00AM) in the Garden Room. Danny Killough is Shoreline’s Middle School Coordinator, and he can be reached with any questions at dkillough@shorelinechurch.org. We are going to miss our graduating students in The Cove, but we are excited for what God has in store for them in the Middle School group!

Another group affected by “Transition Sunday,” is our children who are transitioning from Kindergarten to 1st grade. Starting this Sunday, they will be joining us in The Cove! We are excited and prepared to help with this big move. In The Cove, we teach lessons, play games, and do activities in large groups and grade specific small groups that teach Bible lessons in an age appropriate and fun way. If you have any questions, please contact Nate Harney at nharney@shorelinechurch.org.

Next, we are starting our second month in The Cove with the theme “Harmony: Better Together,” where we are looking at what the Bible has to say about friendship. Our memory verse for the month of July is Proverbs 17:17, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.”

Here are our weekly themes and verses for July:

Week 1 (July 6): Friends Accept Each Other, Romans 15:7

Week 2 (July 13): Friends Forgive Each Other, Colossians 3:13

Week 3 (July 20): Friends Encourage Each Other, 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Week 4 (July 27): Friends Worship With Each Other, Hebrews 24-25a

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