21 November 2021

Hooray. We’ve made it to November 21. The date might not ring any bells, but it actually marks the end of StAKs Online and the chance to start back at church. We’ve loved giving families the chance to worship at home, but from next week we no longer have attendance limits at church (apart from vaccination status for those aged 16-up), so it’s time to make that our main focus. We hope you’re able to join us. We can’t wait.

 

INTRODUCTION:

We still have time for one more kids talk. But don’t be tricked - the TV ads are in there for a reason.

 

READ:

1 Peter 2:9-12

1 Peter 3:8-17

 

WATCH:

We’ve got two clips today - we just couldn’t decide which was better. So your job is to watch them and choose the one you like best. Maybe you can watch that a second time as a reward!

The first clip has a teenager sharing his story about sharing the good news of Jesus.

The second uses the game Tic-tac-toe (although we usually call it naughts and crosses).

SONG:

This is one of my (Naomi) favourite songs at the moment, it's got a great beat and amazing words that remind us how great God is and all he’s done.

I (Ross) like the song too.

DISCUSS:

  • What is the main point of the Bible reading?
  • Who are we supposed to show love to?
  • How does loving people promote the gospel of Jesus?
  • What does it mean to “repay evil with blessing” (1 Pet 3:9)?
  • 1 Peter 3:15 says: “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks” about Jesus. What would you tell people?
  • Have you ever suffered because you are a follower of Jesus?

 

 

DO:

CRAFT

How would you advertise Jesus? Create a poster to tell others about Jesus - who is he, what is he like, what do others need to know about him? Make it bold or sparkly or glittery.

We’d love to see any you create.

 

 

ACTIVITY:

What can we give to others? Maybe the best thing you could give is time. Spend time with someone who needs you. Maybe mow the lawn or do a job for your mum or dad - we don’t only have to be generous with money, but with time too.

 

 

COLOURING:

Here is a website by a group called Flame: Creative Children’s Ministry that has heaps of colouring pages to help kids reflect on God. Click on the page and try it out.

 

 

Please share any of your completed crafts or activities on the StAKs Online Facebook page or email Ross and Naomi.

 

 

VERSE OF THE WEEK:

Psalm 37:21

 

The wicked borrow and never repay, but the godly are generous givers.

Last Week’s Verse

 

John 13:34-35

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

 

 

 

 

PRAY:

We all have people in our life that we don't like spending time with. But God calls us to be generous in all parts of our life. Who is the person that you don’t want to pray for? Who is the person that you don’t always like?

Well this week let's be generous and pray for them. Write their name on a piece of paper and then around it write things you can pray about, such as: that they treat people nicely, they do well in a test, that if they’re sick they get better, or just to have a good day. 

Be kind in what you pray. And be generous this week, praying for them each night or maybe when you see them at school.
