Weekly Big God Story resources for parents:
For July 10th
BEGINNER’S MINISTRY (birth-PreK)
In this week’s Big God Story-God is with Me (Elijah on the Mountain)
Elijah went and hid in a cave on a mountain. God told Elijah to go out and stand on the mountain, because He was going to pass by. First, a great wind came. Then an earthquake and a fire followed the wind. Elijah waited. Then, when he heard a gentle whisper, Elijah went out to meet with the Lord.
ILLUMINATE (K-5th grade)
The Big God Story this Sunday – God’s Spirit gives Gifts (Book of Ephesians-Spiritual Gifts Ephesians 4:1-16)
The good news for us is that this letter to the Ephesians still speaks to us today. God’s Spirit gives each of us special gifts we can use to help the church and other believers. Some people have the gift of teaching, and others have the gift of serving, which means they love to be helpers. Others have the gift of leading people. There are lots of different kinds of gifts we can use to help each other. But no one gift is more important than any other gift. We’re all a part of the body of Christ, and we can rejoice that God’s Spirit gives gifts.
One of the most amazing things about God giving us gifts is that He gives us each unique gifts to use to serve His church.
