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 whining or complaining. It’s time to grow up!

Memory Verse: Philippians 2:14 NLT Do everything without complaining and arguing…

 
  1. What does this Bible verse mean to you?

REVIEW QUESTIONS

 
  1. When you hear someone whining and complaining, how do you feel inside?
  2. If a person quit whining, complaining and arguing,  how do you think it would help them?
  3. Share something you usually complain about. Pray and ask God to help you to have a good attitude 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

Todays Bible story was about a name called Jonah who complained about a plant. God showed him how ridiculous his whining was! In this game, if you get stuck with the plant, you have to whine or complain about something like Jonah did. Wah- Wah!

Sit in a circle and get the kids to pass the plant around, chanting, “NO MORE WHINING OR COMPLAINING. IT’S TIME TO GROW UP” Once the chant stops whoever has the plant must complain about something silly. The rest of the group say WAH WAH once they have finished complaining.
