The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Being Humble

This Sunday Discovery Point:  Today in Sunday school we learned that a reputation is built by doing something over and over. To have a reputation for being humble, we must constantly honor and give thanks to God for all things. There will be many times in our lives that we will have more than someone else, have a newer toy than the kid down the street, or get a better grade than our friend, but we must never look down on someone else because they are less fortunate. Likewise, we should never think that whatever it is we have is because of something we did. All good things come from God, and He alone is worthy of our praise. (Scripture used: Daniel 5:1-30)
Memory Verse: "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up" James 4:10 NIV Memorize this verse with your child. Discuss what it means to humble ourselves before the Lord.
Suggested Parent/Child Activity: Read Proverbs 16:18 with your child. Discuss the difference between having a disdainfully proud or arrogant att…

Valentine’s Day - Love like Jesus

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  Valentine’s Day - Love like Jesus The world has a lot of opinions about love…and most of it is incorrect. Many people focus only on romantic love, but that is just one type of love mentioned in God’s word. Today we learned what is real, what Jesus’ love is all about and how we can begin to separate ourselves from the false attitudes about love and truly embrace how God wants to use love to further His kingdom. We must choose to sacrifice instead selfishness if we want to love like Jesus. Jesus, who never sinned, deserved endless blessings but instead chose to sacrifice His own life because of His love for us. Jesus was more concerned about obeying God by loving others instead of pleasing Himself. And when we follow His humble example, we show true love to the people around us! (Scriptures used: 1 John 3:11-24) 
Memory Verse: “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sist…

The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Courage

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Courage Children learned that God gives us the courage and encouragement we need to remain obedient to Him, even during difficult situations, pressure of worldly temptations, and instances of persecution. (Scripture used: Daniel 3:10-30)
Memory Verse: "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love." 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 NIV 

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will not only help your child to remember the verse, but also it will help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity: Hold a family gathering and discuss in depth on what your family values are based. Set a strong foundation, a reason for what you believe, so that your child's faith will stand firm during turbulent times.
Daily Prayer: Father God, give us wisdom to know what is right and the courage to reject that which is corrupt. Ma…

Kidz Club - February Lesson

Lesson materials are from [The Gospel Project for Kids - Worship Hour]

Dear Parents:
Some time after the temple’s foundation was laid, the work stopped. With the encouragement of the prophets Haggai and Zechariah, God’s people resumed the work of rebuilding the temple in Jerusalem. Approximately 15 years had passed without progress.

At this time, Darius was king of Persia. The Persian Empire was vast, so Darius appointed governors over the provinces. A man named Tattenai watched over the province that included the land of Judah.

Tattenai noticed the work of God’s people, and he was concerned. He sent a letter to King Darius. “Is this allowed?” he asked. “The people say that King Cyrus said they could rebuild the temple and the city. Please investigate this matter.”

King Darius did investigate, and Cyrus’s decree was located in the Babylonian records. Darius instructed Tattenai to allow the people to rebuild the temple and the city. God had turned the heart of the king for His people’s …

The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Strength

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  The Prophet Daniel - A Reputation of Strength Today, we learned about reputations, and that consistently living a pure and holy life builds a strong, Godly reputation. In Daniel 1:1-21 we read how Daniel chose to honor God.
 Scripture used: Daniel 1:1-21 Memory Verse: "Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure, and whether it is right.” Proverbs 20:11 NLT

Memorize this verse with your child. Ask your child what actions define him or her to others.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity: As you and your family go through your normal routines this week, take time to point out some of the reputations that those around you are projecting. You may observe these behaviors at sporting events, malls, church, school, and on T.V. Take time to explain how your child can build and protect a good reputation. Discuss why a person's reputation is so valuable.

Daily Prayer: Father God, may we honor You with the lives we live, just as Daniel …

Tithes and Offerings - God's Blessings

This Sunday Discovery Point: 
In today's lesson, children learned that God doesn't want us to be selfish or self-centered. Real blessings come when we are willing to share what we have with others. God tells us in Matthew 6:19-21 to store up our treasures in Heaven. (Scripture used: Malachi 3:10-12)
Memory Verse:
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal. (Matthew 6:19-20)
Read this passage with your child several times during the week. Spend a few minutes discussing what this verse means and how we should apply it to our lives.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Help your child start a "Heavenly Treasures" journal to record the things your child believes he or she is storing up in Heaven. Review and discuss the list with your child from time to time. You may like to c…

Tithes and Offerings - My Gifts Matter

This Sunday Discovery Point: 
In today's lesson, children learned that God doesn't care how much we give. His desire is that every Christian gives whatever he or she can. When we work together to build up the Church, even the smallest gift is important. We all have a purpose in the church when we give back some of what God has blessed us with. (Scripture used: 2 Corinthians 8:1-15)
Memory Verse:
For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have. (2 Corinthians 8:12)
There is a powerful message packed into this little verse. Help your child memorize the verse during the week.

Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
As Christians we should always strive to do our best, but we can't stop there, we need to see the bigger picture. We must also try to help others when we can. Together we can accomplish much more than we could do alone. Take time to discuss with your child what gift and/or resources he or she may be a…

Tithes and Offerings - A Cheerful Giver

Last Sunday Discovery Point:  Tithes and Offerings - A Cheerful Giver In today's lesson, children learned that God wants us to give with a cheerful heart and a generous spirit. God doesn't want us to give because we feel that we have to. It pleases God to see that we give because we want His Kingdom to grow. We can give many things; we can give of our time, money, talents and prayers. All of these things help others learn about God's wonderful plan of salvation. When we give, God will make our gifts grow beyond our wildest expectations.
 Scripture used: 2 Corinthians 9:6-10 Memory Verse: "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV

Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will help him or her remember the verse and it will also help to reinforce what he or she learned during class.
