4th - 5th Grade

4th & 5th graders will gather together each Sunday Morning for an opening activity, a video Bible Story, a craft and activity. 


Each month the Flames will be learning a new "Life App" and will hear Bible Stories that help us see why these "Life Apps" are important and we will be given a "bottom line" to help us easily remember the big picture from the week. The Flames will help present the theme of the month to Big Church.  You can see a brief description of what your student(s) will be learning each week below. 


Flames Youth Group: This is a new and unique youth group for 4th & 5th graders who will meet on Sunday evenings twice a month from 4:00-5:30 p.m. for a time of fellowship, worship and teaching and small groups.

Grit

Refusing to give up when life gets hard.

 

Week 1

Bottom Line: Hold on because God is with you. As we introduce the idea of grit to our kids, we want them first and foremost to understand that the best way to have grit is by trusting God. God has been faithful to so many people throughout history. God will be with us no matter what we face. We may not understand why we must go through a hard season, but we can trust that God is with us and will give us what we need to keep going.


Week 2

Bottom Line: Hold on because there’s a bigger story. When we’re going through a difficult time, it’s hard to imagine that it could be part of something bigger and better than we expect. Thankfully, we don’t have to find grit on our own; we can trust God to give us what we need to keep going. This idea is not to diminish any pain or hurt we might experience during our difficult time. But we can live with hope, knowing that God can turn our difficulties into something better than what we think is possible.


Week 3

Bottom Line: Hold on even when you don’t know what to do. One of the biggest lessons we learn from Moses’ mom and sister is that they never gave up trusting in God. They weren’t sure how their circumstances would work out, but they believed that God would keep Moses safe. They held on to hope. And God came through for them with a major rescue. God can do the same for us. God can meet us in our confusion and give us the grit we need to push through.


Week 4

Bottom Line: Hold on because God knows what you’re going through. In this story, we see how God saw, heard, and did something about what was happening to the Israelites. God sees, hears, and has the power to take care of what we’re going through, too. We can find comfort in knowing that the God of the universe knows our circumstances and is helping us get through them. We can trust God no matter what.


Week 5

Bottom Line: Hold on because God is in control. We often feel like the Israelites—stuck, with no clear way out of our circumstances. We’re not sure what to do, and we’re not sure we’ll ever get to the other side. Thankfully, we don’t need to face these moments on our own. God is with us and is always working things out, even when we can’t see it. We can trust that God is in control. God will give us what we need to keep going and make it through with grit.
