Activity

Say:
God knows you by name, and He made a way for you to get to know Him. We are better than famous—we are well-known by God! He knows us and never forgets us.

Kids then decorate it with characteristics God knows them for. For example, I am a great friend, an awesome swimmer, and patient.

2. Where did God form (or create) you? In your mother’s womb; in your mom’s tummy
3. What are some good ways to find out the truth about who you are? Choose to follow Jesus, get to know God, believe what He says about you, etc.
4. When did God know us and plan for us to be special? Before we were even born!
5. What do you think about the fact that God knew you before He made you?
6. What do you think it’s like to feel like no one really knows you?
7. What do you think makes people want to be famous?

Choose an action step question.

God knows you and wants you to know Him! What do you think you can do this week to get to know Him better?
If you feel like you don’t matter to anyone, what do you think you can do to remind yourself you matter to God?

Have an awesome week Grace kids!

Hey Grace Families!

Today we are continuing to learn about growing up, and how to stop complaining!

Konnect HQ:

Let’s Worship God!

Worship Songs:
I Am Yours:

Jesus is Alive Right Now:

It’s Your Love:

Activity
You’ll Need:
A toy plant, real plant, or picture of a plant

How To:

Say: Remember the Bible story we saw about Jonah and the plant? His complaining was terrible! In this game, if you get stuck with the plant, you have to whine or complain like Jonah did. Wah-wah!
Pass the plant between you and your child(ren) and chant today’s point, “No more whining or complaining. It’s time to grow up!”

When the chant is complete, the person with the plant whines or complains about something.
Everyone else says, “Wah-wah!” when the person finishes complaining.
Repeat several times.

Review Questions:
Which would you rather hear all the time: someone whining and complaining or a baby crying?
Have you ever gotten in trouble for whining or complaining? What happened?
What does the Bible verse tell us to quit doing?
If you quit whining, complaining, and arguing, how would you do you think it would help you?
In the Bible story (Jonah 4:1-11), what did Jonah do that wasn’t mature?
Talk about a time you acted like Jonah by whining, complaining, or arguing.
When you whine and complain all the time, what do you think it shows others?
When you have a good attitude, what do you think it shows others?
What are some things you can do to help yourself quit whining, complaining, and arguing?
If you catch yourself whining, what will you do?

Hey Grace Families!

I hope you had a fun and safe 4th of July with your family. During the month of July, the Del Mar Fair is usually happening, and it is a bummer we have to miss it this year. The Konnect HQ team won’t have to miss it, because the fair is coming to them. Let’s watch this week’s lesson and see how the team deals with temptation and saying no to sin.

God’s Way Out Activity Supplement – CLICK HERE

Say: God gives us great Bible verses to help us say no to temptations.
Read a verse from the right column of the activity supplement. Ask kids to think of what the verse is telling them to do, and what temptation to say no to.

Ask kids which temptation from the activity they have had to say no to before.

Review Questions:
What tempted Mike, Alissa, and Tony at the fair?
What is a temptation?
In the Bible story (Matthew 4:1-11), what did Jesus do each time the devil tempted him?

If you give into temptation, what can you do to get back on the right path?
What sins can you ask God to help you say NO to this week?
