Courage Week 1

On September 1, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

Courage is being brave enough to do what you should do, even when you’re afraid. Courage is not the absence of fear but how you respond in the face of fear. When we approach situations, we can remember that God is bigger than anything we face. If we’re afraid we’ll be all alone, He will be with us. If we’re afraid we’re not good enough, He’ll provide the gifting we need. And when we can’t understand what’s going to happen, we can remember that God sees everything that’s happening and wants what’s best for us. Then we can move forward courageously.

This month, let’s think about how:
(1) God desires a relationship with us. Being courageous demonstrates trust and builds that relationship.
(2) The Bible challenges us to respond to life with courage even when what we face doesn’t make sense.
(3) As we trust God and show courage, we become more like Jesus who was brave enough to say and do what God asked—even when He faced death on the cross.

This week, we’re discovering:
In this week’s Bible story, Joseph lived a life of courage (Genesis 30, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42-46). Joseph could have despaired when faced with several difficult situations, but rather he remained faithful to God, trusting that God must have a bigger story at work.

Our Bottom Line is I can be brave because I know God is with me. As kids approach a new school year, sports team, or art class, they can push past their fear because God is with them. When kids are afraid of being alone or being in the dark, they can have courage because God is with them.

The monthly memory verse is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You.” Psalm 56:3, NIrV Our trust in God is the source of our courage. Just like Joseph knew God was working to make things good in his life, we can have the same confidence and move courageously into fearful situations because we know God is with us.

Obedience Week 3–August 18th

On August 18, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Aug_widescreen_bottomline3

 

This week, we’re discovering:

In this week’s Bible story, God gave Abraham a promise of descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky (Genesis 12:1-5; 13:2-18; 15:1-6). God asked Abraham to leave his home and travel to a new place that God had prepared for him. Abraham didn’t know where or how God would keep His promises, but he trusted God. Abraham obeyed by packing his household and following God.

Our Bottom Line is: I should trust and obey even if I don’t know how it will all work out. Sometimes we find ourselves in difficult circumstances where we don’t know what’s going to happen. But we always know we can trust God, so we can confidently obey.

The monthly memory verse is: Obey your leaders. Put yourselves under their authority. They keep watch over you. They know they are accountable to God for everything they do. Obey them so that their work will be a joy. If you make their work a heavy load, it won’t do you any good.” Hebrews 13:17 NIrV

Obedience Week 2–August 11th

On August 11, 2013, in Children's Ministry (Anchor Bay), by High School Ministry

13Aug_widescreen_bottomline2

 

This week, we’re discovering:

In this week’s Bible story, God chose Noah to make an ark to save his family and the animals from the impending flood (Genesis 6–8). Noah, the only righteous man left on earth, had a history of trusting God, and he continued to obey God to the smallest detail while building the ark. Even when everyone else disobeyed, Noah followed God.

Our Bottom Line is: I should trust and obey even when others don’t. It can be difficult to stand out in the crowd and feel like we’re alone in our obedience. But developing a pattern of obedience might prepare us for trusting God in a moment when the stakes might be even higher.

 The monthly memory verse is: Obey your leaders. Put yourselves under their authority. They keep watch over you. They know they are accountable to God for everything they do. Obey them so that their work will be a joy. If you make their work a heavy load, it won’t do you any good.” Hebrews 13:17 NIrV
