Revolutionary Joy

Art: During the art rotation children will learn that Jesus never leaves us alone by creating an oil picture that shows that Jesus sees our hearts all the time.

Drama: During Drama students will learn that grumbling is a choice and God wants us to choose peace instead which in turn is more joy. There are two options.

Science: During the science lesson, kids will see how sweetness is better than sour. Or finding joy is better than being sour and upset about things. We will also talk about how complaining is like darkness and we need to be Christ’s light.

Movie: Children will watch the movie Inside Out and talk about feelings.

MESSAGE: "Revolutionary Joy in Temptation" by Pastor Terry Plocher



VERSE OF THE WEEK: 1Corinthians 10:13

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
