1 John 2:12-14 Children's Message

Needed: Grow Chart

HOLD UP GROW CHART
What is this? What is it used for?
As children get older, should the marks move up the tree or down the tree or stay the same? GET AN ANSWER.
Something is wrong if the marks stay the same; and if they move down the tree it means you are getting smaller.
There are a couple of different marks on this page. EXPLAIN THEM
Measure Alexander/Adriana again. Mention baby Edie.

What are you girls and boys starting this morning?
GET THEM TO ANSWER SUNDAY SCHOOL
Do you know why our church has Sunday School? So your soul, your faith, can grow just like your body grows.
Your parents send you to Sunday School so you can learn about Jesus. So you can learn about people like Abraham and Sarah, David, Samson, Gideon, Isaiah, Paul, Peter. So your faith can grow.

If we were able to mark your faith on a grow chart should the marks move up or down the tree or stay the same? GET AN ANSWER
Over the years, girls and boys, your faith should be growing just like your body is growing.
Over the years, girls and boys, you should love Jesus more and more.
Over the years you should learn more and more about Him.
Over the years you should want to do more and more for Jesus.

This year we believe your bodies will grow.
And, we pray your faith, your soul, will also grow.

PRAY WITH CHILDREN, PRAY FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL, PRAY FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS
