Wreck It Pete 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum
Jesus Puts the Pieces Back Together!
Peter, the fishermen, was brash, bold and impulsive. Despite his desire to do good, Peter didn't always do the right thing. He came close to wrecking things quite a few times, but Jesus was always there providing forgiveness and redemption. We may feel that we've “wrecked it” when it comes to the bad things we've done; but if we will turn to Jesus, He will put our broken pieces back together. In Wreck It Pete 4-Week Children’s Ministry Curriculum, kids will know that no sin or mistake is bigger than God's forgiveness.
Wreck It Pete Children's Ministry Curriculum Lesson Overview
Memory Verse: “The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.” Psalm 34:18 (NIrV)
What a Wreck
Scripture: Matthew 14:22-33, Jesus and Peter Walk on Water
Peter boldly stepped out of the boat to walk on water with Jesus. While he kept his eyes on Jesus, Peter was fine. But when Peter focused on the wind and waves, he almost wrecked himself.
Objective: Kids will learn that if we don't want to wreck it, we should keep our eyes on Jesus.
Making a Mess of Things
Scripture: Mark 8:27-33, Jesus Rebukes Peter
People were impressed with the words Jesus said and the miracles he performed, but they did not understand who Jesus was. Peter was one of the first to understand that Jesus was the Son of God. Moments later, though, Jesus was rebuking Peter for questioning God's plan.
Objective: Kids will learn that if we don't want to wreck it, we should trust God's plan.
It All Falls Apart
Scripture: Matthew 26:69-75, Peter Disowns Jesus
Peter’s life had no shortage of mistakes and missteps. But Peter's greatest shame came when he disowned Christ, swearing to people that he did not know Jesus. Peter let his fear cause him to sin against Jesus.
Objective: Kids will learn that if we don't want to wreck it, we need to trust God even when it’s difficult.
Putting the Pieces Together
Scripture: Acts 2:1-14, 41, Peter Preaches At Pentecost
Despite all of his mistakes and all the times he “wrecked things,” God still had an important part for Peter to play. On the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to Peter and helped him preach to the great crowd that was gathered; and 3000 people came to believe in Jesus that day. No matter how you have “wrecked it” you can be forgiven, and allow God to use you in a special way.
Objective: Kids will learn that even when we think we've wrecked it, God still has a part for us to play in his plan.
