    Summer Games Children's Ministry Curriculum Lesson Overview

    Memory Verse:

    “In a race all the runners run. But only one gets the prize. You know that, don’t you? So run in a way that will get you the prize.” 1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIRV)

    Lessons:

    Marathon

    Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9, The Sower & Matthew 12:1-14, Jesus and the Sabbath

    Marathon runners have their hearts and minds set on reaching the finish line even though their bodies will be telling them to stop. Jesus was healing people and telling them about the Kingdom of God. He was focused on finishing his mission of salvation. Some embraced the message, but the Pharisees rejected Jesus and his message. They had hard hearts, just like the seed that fell along the path. 

    Objective: Kids will say “I will keep an open heart to what Jesus says.”

    Synchronized Swimming

    Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9, The Sower & John 6:57-69, Disciples Turn Away

    Athletes have to be “in sync” if they hope to win gold in synchronized swimming. When Jesus called himself “the Bread of Life” many of his followers were not “in sync” with what he said and they stopped following him. They were like the seed that fell along the rocky place.

    Objective: Kids will say “I will not turn away when things get tough.”

    Wrestling

    Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9, The Sower & Matthew 19:16-26, The Rich Young Man

    Wrestlers need to stay in control and not get pinned down. The seed that lands among the weeds wrestle with the concerns of life which can pin them down and keep them from growing. The Rich Young Man wanted to follow Jesus but wrestled with Jesus’ call for him to sell all that he had. 

    Objective: Kids will say “I won’t let the worries of life take my eyes off Jesus.”  

    Speed Climbing

    Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9, The Sower & Luke 19:1-10, Zacchaeus

    Athletes in the speed climbing try to climb higher, faster their competitors. Zacchaeus got higher than anyone else in order to see Jesus. When Zacchaeus met Jesus, it turned his life around. Zacchaeus’ love and generosity grew, just like the seed that fell along the good path in the Parable of the Sower.

    Objective: Kids will say “I want my relationship with Jesus to be my highest priority.”

    Each Lesson Includes:

    • Make It Stick! Parent Sheet - so you can let mom and dad know what kids are learning each week and look like a rockstar teacher who's thought of everything.
    • Memory Verse - so that you can make sure kids are getting Scripture in their minds and hearts every single week and you can feel like each lesson was a success even when it seems like 90% of your lesson time is spent saying things like "calm down", "let's be quiet", "hands to yourself!"
    • Skit or Puppet Show - so you have a way to easily connect the lesson with your hands-on and visual learners. No drama team? No problem! Just hand the script to the kids. They'll have a blast and think you're the coolest.
    • Craft Activity - so you can give kids a physical reminder of the Bible lesson (and give yourself an activity to keep them busy until mom and dad come back!)
    • Game - so kids don't leave and say church was BORING! Games are so important to help keep kids engaged. Our large group games always include a "What's The Point" section to help you connect the game to the lesson.
    • Large Group Lesson - so you can present the Bible story in a clear and fun way, which means now you can enjoy Saturday nights instead of stressing over putting a lesson together!
    • Small-Group Discussion - so you can find out who was paying attention and who was talking to their neighbor.  Just kidding, this is a great way for you to build deeper relationships with your kiddos after each lesson, which means you're going to care about them so much you'll cry like a baby when they graduate and go to middle school :(
    • More! - Yes, there is even more than all of that so that you can easily put together the perfect lesson for your ministry each weekend, which means no more agonizing over how to adjust complicated lesson plans.
