Summer Road Trip 8-Week Children's Ministry Curriculum
God Has Good Things In Store For Us!
Are we there yet??? The family road trip can be great fun, seeing the sights and spending time together. It can also breed complaining about cramped quarters and boredom. When the Israelites took a road trip to the land God promised them, they complained the whole way. They forgot that God has good things in store for us.
Summer Road Trip Children's Ministry Curriculum Lesson Overview
Memory Verse: “Into your hands I commit my very life. Lord, set me free. You are my faithful God.” Psalm 31:5 (NIrV)
Drive-Thru – There’s usually nothing very extraordinary about your average drive-thru meal; you’re usually just there to get a simple meal and get back on the road. The Israelites journey out of slavery began with a very simple, but special meal to show us that God has special things in store for us. Exodus 12:1-14, 31-42, Passover
Grand Canyon – When you stand on the edge of the canyon, you marvel at the thought of what it would take to get to the other side. When the Israelites reached the Red Sea, they saw no way across, but God showed them his amazing power to save. Exodus 14:5-29, The Rea Sea
Campground – Stopping at a campground may not be your ideal vacation destination, but even in the simple settings of a campground we can still find things to be thankful for and see how God takes care of us: a tent to keep us dry, food to eat around the campfire, beautiful scenery. God showed the Israelites over and over again that he is faithful to take care of us. Exodus 16:1-23, Manna and Quail
Rest Stop – There are rest stops along the highway for us to stop and take a little break. When the Israelites were tired and out of water, God created a rest stop for them in the desert reminding us that God is always with us and he knows what we need. Exodus 17:1-7, Water From the Rock
Grandparent's House – Sometimes we take road trips to spend time with family we don't see very often. In the desert, Moses' father-in-law visited and gave him some good advice, showing us that God brings wise people into our lives to listen to. Exodus 18, Jethro Visits Moses
The Beach – The beach is one of the most popular and exciting vacation spots. However, to make sure everyone has fun and stays safe there are a lot of rules at the beach. In the Bible, God carved his rules for living into stone to give Moses and the people the Ten Commandments. God's law is holy and good. Exodus 20:1-17, 31:18, The Ten Commandments
Tourist Traps – Usually tourist traps don’t live up to the hype and they just distract us from getting to our vacation destination. When the Israelites lost their faith in God, they built a huge golden calf to worship, forgetting that only our God is the one true God. Exodus 32:1-26, The Golden Calf
Disney World – For some road trippers, amusement parks are the Promised Land. When Moses was very old, God showed him from a distance the Promised Land that God had prepared for the people. God has prepared good things for us. Deuteronomy 31:1-8, 32:48-52, Moses Sees The Promised Land
