Early Childhood Ministry Lessons for the Month of July.
This month, we will continue with our Power Up theme as we learn how Jesus gives us the power to love others—and not just the ones who are easy to love. No, this kind of power is what helps us love everyone! This powerful kind of love looks a lot like goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
WEEK 1 | July 7
We will learn that when Jesus is our friend, He gives us the power to show GOODNESS to others. Showing goodness to people is a great way to love them! Who doesn’t like a little goodness?
Story Focus: When Jesus is your friend, He gives you the power to show goodness. When we know Jesus, we can give our best to our friends and family.
WEEK 2 | July 14
Week two is an amazing story about how Peter’s friends showed him how much they loved him by being FAITHFUL to pray for him. They didn’t give up. I can’t wait for you to hear how the love of Peter’s friends actually got him out of jail!
Story Focus: When Jesus is your friend, He gives you the power to be faithful. Jesus helps us be faithful and stick to it!
WEEK 3 | July 21
We will hear a story about a time when Jesus was GENTLE with a woman whom most people treated very harshly. If you ever want to know how gentle love is, look no further than Jesus. He is the perfect example of gentleness in both word and action.
Story Focus: When Jesus is your friend, He gives you the power to be gentle. Jesus can help us be gentle when we talk and play with our friends and family.
WEEK 4 | July 28
Week four we will learn that just because a person is young, it doesn’t mean they can’t have SELFCONTROL. Jesus gives us the power to do that too! And let’s face it, we could all use a little more power when it comes to self-control. Story Focus: When Jesus is your friend, He gives you the power to have self-control. We can all have self-control when we know Jesus.
