Prepare

Designate a time and place to sit together and watch the curriculum
Gather with some snacks and a drink and enjoy God together!

1. Praise Party

Worship to the music with your mouth and body.  Think about something you are thankful for this week or tell Jesus how much you love Him and are thankful for Him in your life.  Think about that during worship and speak it out to God. Have fun and enjoy Jesus together!

3. Lets Talk

Say the Point and Verse out loud together.

No more excuses. It’s time to grow up!

Memory Verse: James 4:17 NLT    Remember, its is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

 
  1. What does this Bible verse mean to you?

REVIEW QUESTIONS

 
  1. What do you think people miss out on when they make excuses all the time?
  2. What big plans do you think God has for you?
  3. Share a responsibility you would like to have. What do you think you can do to earn that responsibility?
  4. Share an excuse you say a lot. Pray together to ask for God’s help to take responsibility, instead. 

4. Pray

Ask the children to share things they’d like to pray about. Write your prayer request so you can continue to pray for your family during the week. Pray together, give them a chance to lead the prayer if they want to. Not sure what to pray?

Pray this: God, Thank you for forgiving our sins. Please remind me of things I do that are sinful and refresh my mind so that I will not continue to do sin in these ways. I ask for your continued guidance with this. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

 

5. Activity

God has good things for you to do. Don’t le excuses make you think you can’t do those good things. Let’s play a game to catch those excuses before they slip out and keep us from doing what we need to do!

Create a dice with the cube template sheet and colour each side a different colour. (Red, yellow, blue, green, orange and white)

Take it in turns throwing the dice, each time a new colour comes up read out a statement from the activity supplement sheet, the children must decide whether it is an excuse or a godly choice.
