Here's the songs and liturgy our kids are reviewing this month during our Sunday children's ministry.
Leader 1: Good morning/evening!! Listen to these words from Psalm 47 –
Clap your hands, all peoples!
Shout to God with loud songs of joy!
For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared,
a great king over all the earth.
Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!
For God is the King of all the earth;
sing praises with a psalm!
Now, let’s stand and sing together!
King of Everything
Leader 2: Our memory verse this month is 2 Timothy 3:16-17!
Repeat after me: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Leader 1: Does anyone know what the word “Scripture” means? Scripture is God’s Word – the Bible (Whenever you hear that, does anyone else think of the song the B-I-B-L-E-?? I do!). There are many different ways we can refer to the Bible, God’s Word. No other book on earth is like the Bible. The Bible teaches us all about God’s love for us and about our Savior, Jesus. Are you thankful God gave it to us?!
Let’s sing about God’s Word and praise him for it!
The Word of the Lord
Leader 1: This month we will be learning more about God’s Word and about how it is a “lamp to our feet and a light to our path.” Does anyone think they might know what that phrase means? The Bible teaches us about how to live a life that pleases God. Sometimes that can be so hard! Sometimes we stumble and fall, as if we’re walking in the dark bumping into things! We will never be perfect until we’re in heaven with Jesus, but we look forward to that day and hope for his return to be soon.
Leader 2: As we sing the next song together, you can bring your offering to God to the front of the room!
Let’s sing a song about Jesus coming back soon.
Even So Come
Leader 1: Hey, who can tell me what time it is? (Catechism time!!)
(Play the Catechism riff like “Tequila”: G-F-G-F x3, G-F-G “Catechism!”)
Leader 2: This question reminds me of the song we just sang! Let’s read it together.
Q: How do we live while waiting for Jesus to return? A: We remember God’s truth, grow in godliness, and spread the gospel.
Leader 2: Let’s pray! Bow your heads and fold your hands and close your eyes as we talk to God!
Father, we thank You for sending Jesus to earth to teach us Your Word, to help us understand the truth about who You are and what You want us to do, and to save us. We thank You that because of what Jesus has done for us, we can follow You and be more like You. Please help us, by the power of Your Spirit, to follow You and love and obey You, our King. Please open our eyes to see more of You and open our minds to understand You better today as we learn from Your Word.
