This Week We’re Discovering

Finally, we’ll take a closer look at the passage where we find our memory verse. In Philippians 2:3-8, Paul tells us how Jesus is the ultimate example of humility. He gave up everything to come to earth and save us.

Bottom Line: Put others first.

We hope that when kids take a look at the people around them, that they will start to understand just how much Jesus loves them, it will change the way we treat them, and they’ll make sure to put them first.

This Month’s Memory Verse

Our Memory Verse for April comes from Philippians 2:3. This verse is part of a passage that describes Jesus’ humility. Jesus left everything He deserved to humble Himself to save us. As we respond to Jesus’ love, we can show humility as we love on those around us.

 

Extra Memory Verses:

Week 1Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves..

Week 2: Romans 12:16  Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

Week 3:Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Week 4: John 13: 14-15 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.  I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.

Week 5: Philippians 2:3  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.

 


God Time Card:

Godtime Cards are now together with the Family Talk and are given in a packet.  You receive the entire month all at once. This is similar to BTW for adults, but for your kids!

Music:

Do you know what songs your kids are singing this month? Click  MUSIC for a direct link to the Ada Bible Church playlist. You will also be able to purchase the songs your child will be singing this month.

Widget:

Truth be told, our default setting is “me first,” but humility calls for a different route. Help your kids make a “U-turn” with this month’s widget, a booklet of ten U-FIRST TICKETS. Parents can challenge each child to look for opportunities throughout the month to put others first, whether it’s letting someone ahead of them in line or allowing a sibling to choose the evening’s movie.

When a child puts someone else first, parents can reward them with a U-First Ticket. After a kid has collected all ten tickets, families decide together upon a reward.
