This Wednesday at Weems Creek Kids - June 22
Wednesday Evening: Kids in Motion
On Wednesday evenings, 3rd-5th graders participate in Kids in Motion. This is a program with 3 unique rotations for kids to get a well-rounded and fun small group experience. Modeling Deuteronomy 6, kids hearts are chiseled to have a passion for the things of God in
the rotation called Chisel. In Create, kids participate in interactive crafts and games that drive home the evening’s Biblical truth. In Mission, kids not only learn about the mission of God in
the world but also participate in missions.
What your child is being taught this week
Chisel and Create
Core Passage: Acts 9:36-43
Text Truth: Through Peter's words and actions, Jesus healed Aeneas and Dorcas
Connection Passage: Peter was a devoted follower of Jesus. He traveled from place to place to tell people about Jesus. One day he walked down the street in the town of Lydda. He saw a man named Aeneas. Aeneas was paralyzed and had been bedridden for 8 years. Peter spoke to Aeneas, "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed." Immediately, Aeneas stood up. Everyone who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw Aeneas adn believed in Jesus.
Near the town of Lydda was a town called Joppa. Iin Joppa a disciple named Dorcas, who was also called Tabitha, was always doing good works and helping others. Dorcas became sick and died. She was palced in a room upstairs.
The followers of Jesus had heard that Peter was in Lydda and they sent two men to beg him to come to Joppa. Peter agreed and traveled with them to Joppa. When he arrived, the people led him to the room where Dorcas was laid. The widows were crying and showed Peter the robes and clothes that Dorcas had made to care for them.
Peter sent all of the people out of the room. Then he knelt down and prayed. Peter turned and said, "Tabitha, get up!" Dorcas opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up. Peter helped her stand up and called all of the people to come see that Dorcas was alive. Many people heard what happened and many repented of their sin and trusted Jesus as their Lord and Savior
We are continuing to learn about the Bishop family, who are missionaries in Hamburg Germany. They’re a pretty normal Texan family: mom, dad, two teens. Jason’s a quarterback coach. Caryn’s a sideline mom. Jason and his son teach tae kwon do. Together, Jason and Caryn belong to a Christian motorcycle association and attend biking events. The Bishops have been transplanted to Hamburg (HOM-berg), Germany, to do ordinary things in an extraordinarily tough mission field. Hamburg is a city filled with people who are indifferent to God. Kids will discover how the Bishops use their interests, hobbies and spiritual gifts to reach their fellow (you guessed it) Hamburgers!
ABC's of God
At the same time, Kindergarten-2nd graders go through the ABC’s of God. Using the alphabet as a framework for teaching the attributes of God, this study presents a clear and approachable theology of God for kids.
