This coming month in KidZone is all about humility. Each week our kids will be learning about putting others first, and giving them what they think they deserve.
God created new born babies to demand attention, to insure that they get everything they need. Ideally as kids grow, mature, and become less dependent, they also learn to be less demanding and more giving. Reality is though this transition doesn’t always take place, and so, many kids continue to be as selfish at age 8, 38, and 68, as the day they they were born. This month is about addressing this issue.
Our theme verse for the month is “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or van conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3, NIV. If your a parent and you are interested in following along with what we are talking about in KidZone, our lessons this month are….
April 3rd – Served (Jesus washes the disciples feet) – John 13:1-17 – Treat other people like they are more important than you.
April 10th – Arrested (Jesus prays and is arrested) – Luke 22:39-44, John 18:2-11 – To put others first, you need to put God first.
April 17th – Crucified (Jesus is tried and crucified) – March 14:53-65 & 15:1-39 – Jesus put us first when he died on the cross.
April 24th – Resurrected (Jesus is buried and resurrected) – Matthew 28:1-10, 16-20 – We should put others first because Jesus is alive.
Whether you feel your kid has learned this lesson, or needs to hear it desperately, be sure to bring them out this coming Sunday. KidZone services start at 8:30, 10:30, and 12:30.
