In "My" Beginning
This past Sunday (October 9) we started our new Junior Church curriculum - "BIG" from Hillsong Kids. We have never ran a program quite like it but the kids embraced it and got excited about it. We have started to learn 2 new rockin' songs and our new memory verse (with actions) from Ephesians 3:18. The kids also learned that God cares about every detail about them, no matter how small. Did you know that blondes usually have the most number of hairs on their heads? (Approximately 140,000) And that red heads have the fewest (90,000 approx)?
The most important lesson learnt was that God created each of us for a purpose. I think the kids got most excited when I demonstrated this lesson by trying to cut a tomato with a hammer and a drill. Just like tools or knives have specific purposes, so they were also created for a purpose. After this fun time the kids broke into their KDG's (Kid's Discipleship Groups) and discussed how God has made each of them uniquely.
In the end 3 points were highlighted:
1. You are one of a kind.
2. God is interested in your life.
3. You were created on purpose for a purpose.
Tip for partnering Parents: Help your child(ren) learn the memory verse. Learn it with them and ask them to show you the actions!
