Elementary Summer Series - Make Waves Pt 1

Elementary June 2022

Make Waves Pt. 1 - Week 4

June 26, 2022 • Galatians, Proverbs

In week four, we spend time discovering more about Proverbs 15:18. Waiting can be the worst! But something Solomon wrote in Proverbs can help us remember why patience is so important. A person with a bad temper stirs up conflict. But a person who is patient calms things down, (NIrV). When we have to wait, it’s important not to let impatience get the best of us. We can trust God to give us the strength to have patience and keep our cool. BOTTOM LINE: Be patient with each other. MEMORY VERSE: “The fruit the holy spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself." Galatians 5:22-23A, NIRV REMEMBER: What you do today can change the world around you.

Make Waves Pt. 1 - Week 3

June 19, 2022 • Galatians, 1 Samuel

In week three, we jump back to 1 Samuel 25:1-35, where we find a story about a woman named Abigail that starts with King David. He was furious with a man named Nabal, who mistreated his soldiers. David decided to get revenge until the man’s wife, Abigail, used her peacemaking skills and stopped something that could have been horrible. Even though she was not responsible for her husband’s offense, she realized she could play a role in making peace. BOTTOM LINE: You can help others make peace. MEMORY VERSE: “The fruit the holy spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself." Galatians 5:22-23A, NIRV REMEMBER: What you do today can change the world around you.

Make Waves Pt. 1 - Week 2

June 12, 2022 • Galatians, Acts

Next, we head to Acts 5:17-42. When Jesus’ disciples started sharing about His death and resurrection with others, they faced all sorts of trouble. Thankfully, they had Jesus’ Holy Spirit to help them find joy. BOTTOM LINE: Choose joy no matter what's going on. MEMORY VERSE: “The fruit the holy spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself." Galatians 5:22-23A, NIRV REMEMBER: What you do today can change the world around you.

Make Waves Pt. 1 - Week 1

June 5, 2022 • Galatians, 1 John

We start our month in 1 John 4:9-13. John tells us exactly what real love looks like: God loved us enough to send Jesus to offer His life and make us complete. John goes on to say: Dear friends, since God loved us this much, we should also love one another, (NIrV). Love is at the heart of God’s plan for the world. We are close to the heart of Jesus when we show love to others. BOTTOM LINE: Love others because God loves you. MEMORY VERSE: “The fruit the holy spirit produces is love, joy and peace. It is being patient, kind and good. It is being faithful and gentle and having control of oneself." Galatians 5:22-23A, NIRV REMEMBER: What you do today can change the world around you.

Make Waves Pt. 1 - Parent Preview

June 1, 2022 • Galatians

Check out this video for a preview of what's to come in June! You can also download the weekly overview document below for a breakdown of each week's bible passage and memory verse. We were created in God’s image. God sent Jesus to show us the best way to be human. But God knew we’d need help. That’s why God sent us the Holy Spirit. With the power of the Spirit, we can produce fruit that points others to Jesus. Every month, kids discover something about God’s character and how they can reflect or respond to that character because they are created in God’s image.
