We do want your child to be able to continue to learn during this time. Our curriculum has been updated and you now have access to weekly videos and parent guides. This guide will help you with an activity for each week. 


We also send this out weekly in an email, if you would like to be added to that list, contact the Office at fccsalem@yahoo.com.

JULY

Each month we will be taking a deeper look at a "life app"  and stories in the Bible that go along with it. Each week we will leave with a bottom line to sum up what we had learned that Sunday morning. 



Make Waves

What you do today can change the world around you

W E E K 1

We start our month in Luke 10:25-37. When the religious leader questioned Jesus about the sorts of people we should love and show kindness to, He told the familiar parable of the Good Samaritan. With this story, Jesus completely changed how people who follow Him should look at showing kindness to others – it’s not just for people we know or like, but for everyone we meet.


Bottom Line: Show kindness to everyone. Everyone is someone who God created and loves. We pray that our kids start to realize that everyone deserves kindness. We’ll help them discover simple ways to put God’s love into action with the way they are kind to people they meet.


W E E K 2

Next, we head to Matthew 5:14-16. Matthew records the Sermon on the Mount, where Jesus taught His followers what it looks like to live as part of God’s Kingdom. Jesus says we are like light in the darkness and salt to flavor food. We’re a city on a hill that points others to God. God gave us so much through Jesus. We can show others what God is like with how we act.


Bottom Line: Show God’s goodness to others. When we understand that God has been so good to us through Jesus, we can’t help but show that same goodness to others. From being kind to helping others, we hope kids develop some great ideas to point others to Jesus with their actions.


W E E K 3

In week three, we jump back to 1 Samuel 18-20 and 2 Samuel 9. We dive deeper into the amazing friendship between David and Jonathan. Jonathan was a faithful friend to David when King Saul chased David and tried to kill him. David was faithful to Jonathan and kept an important promise to care for Jonathan’s family.


Bottom Line: Be faithful so others can count on you. Faithfulness will look different for each of us. Some of us will be faithful to family members who need encouragement. Others will faithfully help friends who struggle a bit. We hope kids learn that God can do some amazing things through them when they are faithful to others.


W E E K 4

For week four, we get a glimpse into the heart of Jesus in Mark 10:13-16. Mark records a time when Jesus welcomed children, gave them his attention, and blessed them. Back then, no one thought very highly of children, and what Jesus did would have shocked the people watching. His gentleness to the children continues to be an important example of how we can make waves when we respond to others with gentleness.


Bottom Line: God can give you the strength to be gentle. Kids don’t always know how to respond with gentleness. But we want them to know that God can help them! We pray they’ll start to be aware of how they react when things don’t go their way and trust God to help them choose to be gentle.


W E E K 5

We finish up our Make Waves series discovering more about James 3:1-6. Our words have power. James uses practical images like a horse bit, a ship’s rudder, and a flame to show us just how powerful they are. They can hurt, or they can heal, and controlling them is almost impossible. Thankfully, we can count on the Holy Spirit to help us.


Bottom Line: God gives you the power to have self-control. Self-control can be tricky, especially when we want something really bad or when life doesn’t go our way. This can also be true with the words we use. We pray that kids will begin to see that they don’t need to do this all independently. God can help them show self-control.
