2nd & 3rd Grade Week 1, April 7

The Write Stuff

Bible Story: The Write Stuff (Paul writes to Rome) • Romans 14:13; 15:7 (Supporting: Acts 9)

Bottom Line: Friends accept one another.

Memory Verse: “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help when trouble comes.” Proverbs 17:17,


Life App: Friendship—spending time with someone you trust and enjoy.

Basic Truth: I can trust God no matter what.

Early Arriver Activity (8:45 or 10:30) What You Need: an offering container

What You Do:

Collect kids’ offerings. Ask kids if they have ever received a letter or postcard or card in the mail. Who sent it?

What did it say? How did they feel when it came? Have they ever written a letter to someone instead of just an email? Have they ever sent a postcard while they were on vacation? Have they sent cards to people for something special?

Plug In (9:00 or 10:45) We’re All Different What You Need: no supplies needed

What You Do:

Have kids sit in a circle. Go around the circle, with each kid answering the question: How are you different from me? The first kid in the circle will ask the kid to his right: “How are you different from me?” And will get a short answer such as, “I have brown hair” or “I am taller.” Keep going until every kid has answered. Encourage kids to answer quickly and make sure their responses aren’t hurtful. If time allows, play the game again, going around the circle the other way.

What You Say:

“God made all of us different from one another. Some of us are boys and some of us are girls, some of us are taller or shorter, some of us have dark hair or light hair. Even identical twins aren’t exactly the same; they have different personalities, likes, dislikes, and fingerprints. Wouldn’t it be boring if everyone were exactly the same?

[Transition] Now, let’s head to Large Group and find out about some men who were very different from each other at first but later became friends.” Lead your group to the Large Group area.

Prayer Time After large group, gather children in their small groups. Lead them in prayer focusing on “The Bottom Line.” Catch On #1 In It Together (application activity / great for boys) This is a whole group activity. Pair up with one other Small Group.

What You Need: 2 XXL T-shirts, 8-10 ping pong balls, 2 buckets

What You Do:

Divide kids into two teams, and within each team have kids pair up with same-gender partners. Kids will run a relay race with partners, wearing only one shirt. Give each pair a Ping-Pong ball, and instruct kids to run down to the other end of the room, holding the ball together. Pairs place the Ping-Pong ball in the bucket together and then go back to line. Have some kids go twice if there are unequal numbers.

What You Say:

“God made each of us different for a reason—so we could help each other. We might not be good at a certain thing, but we might have a friend who is good at that thing and can help us. Or we might not know how to do something that someone else does know how to do. If we work together and accept one another and the level of skills or abilities we each have, we will be able to do more things than we’d be able to do alone. [Personalize] (Tell kids about a time when you worked with someone and got something done faster or better than you would have alone.) [Apply] This week, when you can’t do something, ask a friend to help you. Stick together. Doing this will help you grow like Jesus did. Don’t worry about what your friend might think if you ask him or her for help, because [Impress] friends accept one another.” Catch On #2 Here’s What Happened (application activity / review the Bible story) What You Need: “Here’s What Happened” postcards (Activity Pages), pens, markers (optional)

What You Do:

Have kids write a postcard to a friend in another class or someone who isn’t at church today and tell that person their version of the Bible story. Encourage kids to include all the parts of Saul’s conversion and his friendship with Ananias. You may want to write the names Saul, Paul, Judas, and Ananias where kids can see them for spelling. Have kids draw their favorite part of the story on the front of their postcard with a caption.

What You Say:

“Paul was writing a letter to his friends in Corinth and it ended up becoming one of the books of the Bible called Romans. In Paul’s letter, he was trying to encourage his friends there to come together and live in peace even though they were all very different. It’s important for us to read this letter so we see that those same lessons about coming together and accepting each other apply today. [Apply] When you hear others making fun of someone because they are different, you should tell them to stop and try to help them find ways to accept that person or at least to be respectful. [Impress] Friends accept one another.” Catch On #3 What’s That Verse? (memory verse activity) What You Need: extra Bibles, large sheet of paper, markers, sticky notes

What You Do:

Before the activity begins, write the Bible verse on the board or on a large sheet of paper (be sure to space the words out enough and write them small enough that each word fits under a sticky note or two). Then cover up each word with a sticky note.

With the kids, look up the Bible verse and say it together.

nd rd Finding verses with 2 and 3 graders: Guide kids to open their Bibles to the front and find the table of contents. Hold up a Bible opened to the table of contents to show the kids what the page looks like. When the kids find the table of contents, lead them to find Proverbs in the list under “Old Testament.” When the kids find Proverbs, lead them to look at the page number beside the word. Explain that the number tells them on what page they can find Proverbs. Help the kids find the page. When they find Proverbs, explain that the big numbers on the page are the chapter numbers. Help them find chapter 17. Explain that the small numbers are verse numbers. Help them find verse 17 in chapter 17.

Then have kids close their Bibles and raise their hands trying to remember all the words of the verse one at a time. If kids get stuck, give hints such as words it rhymes with, sounds like, etc. When they guess a word on the board, peel off the sticky note to reveal it. Keep going until the whole verse has been uncovered and say it together.

What You Say:

“Friends love each other no matter what. They are there for each other. So, if you see a friend who is in trouble, go and help him. Or, if you know someone who is having a hard day, try to do something for her that might make her day a little easier. [Apply] Show your friends you love them and that you will be there for them when trouble comes. [Impress] Friends accept one another.” 2nd & 3rd Grade Week 2, April 14 The Write Brother Bible Story: The Write Brother (Paul writes to Thessalonica) • 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Bottom Line: Friends encourage one another.

Memory Verse: “A friend loves at all times. He is there to help when trouble comes.” (Proverbs 17:17, NIrV) Life App: Friendship—spending time with someone you trust and enjoy.

Basic Truth: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Early Arriver Activity (8:45 or 10:30) What You Need: an offering container

What You Say:

Ask kids what it means to encourage someone. How do they feel when someone encourages them? What kinds of things do they do to encourage other people? Have they ever been to a sporting event or concert where people were cheering? How do they think it made the people on the field or on the stage feel to hear all that clapping? Who are their biggest fans (at home, school, church, soccer, etc.)?

Plug In (9:00 or 10:45) Bag It What You Need: brown paper lunch sacks, scissors

What You Do:

Have kids stand in a circle and put an open brown paper sack in front of each kid. Instruct them to put their hands behind their back, stand on one foot, and lean down to pick up the bag with their mouth. Every person gets three tries and if they can’t pick up the bag, they sit down and encourage others who are still playing. After everyone has done this, cut an inch off the top of each bag and do it again. Keep cutting off the top of the bags until no one can pick it up anymore.

What You Say:

“I heard some really encouraging words out there! Thanks for showing our group that we really care about each other and want to encourage one another to do well. [Transition] Today in Large Group we are going to hear about some friends who encouraged another friend in doing God’s work so they didn’t quit or give up.” Lead your group to the Large Group area.

Prayer Time After large group, gather children in their small groups. Lead them in prayer focusing on “The Bottom Line.” Catch On #1 Encouraging Words (application activity / review the Bible story) What You Need: paper, pencils

What You Do:

Ask the kids what verse we heard about today. (“So cheer each other up with the hope you have. Build each other up. In fact, that’s what you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIrV) Paul wrote these words to the Thessalonians in a letter. Paul’s friends also encouraged him along the way, as he spread the word about Jesus.

Can they remember some of Paul’s friends that we talked about today? (Silas, Barnabas, Priscilla and Aquila) There are clues below if they forgot any of them. Ask kids what are some of the ways Paul’s friends encouraged him?

#1: This guy traveled with Paul on some of his journeys, telling people about Jesus. One time he was arrested along with Paul and thrown in prison … then, in the middle of the night when they were praying and singing to God, and there was a HUGE earthquake, the prison doors flew open, and their chains came loose. Who was that friend? (Answer: Silas—Acts 16) #2: This guy also traveled with Paul, telling people about Jesus. The Bible says he sold a field and brought the money for the apostles to use. His name was Joseph, but the apostles called him something else—a name that meant “son of encouragement.” (Answer: Barnabas—Acts 4:36) #3: These two were actually a guy and a girl—a married couple. They were tentmakers, like Paul. They went on journeys with him and told people about Jesus, and they even hosted a church in their house. Their names even kind of rhyme at the end. (Answer: Priscilla and Aquila—Acts 18) Instruct kids to write their names at the top of their paper and draw a small picture of themselves. Do one for yourself, too! Explain that everyone will pass their picture to the right, and that person will write something encouraging about the person whose paper they have. We can encourage each other today like Paul and his friends did. [Personalize] (Make sure you’re also doing the activity, so your kids can encourage you and you can encourage them!)

What You Say:

“Paul had a lot of friends encouraging him along the way. There is no doubt this helped him in his journey because he knew he had people loving and supporting him, even when things were getting hard. [Impress] Friends encourage one another. [Apply] We need to encourage our friends so they will know we are with them even when they are going through a hard time. Doing this will help us know how to live and we will grow like Jesus did. We all like having people encourage us, and [Recycle] we should treat others the way we want to be treated.” Catch On #2 On Target (application activity / great for boys) What You Need: masking tape OR a large piece of paper with markers, beanbags

What You Do:

Make three concentric squares on the floor with masking tape or draw them on a large piece of paper. Have kids take turns tossing a beanbag to try to get it in the squares. The middle square is worth three points, the next square out is worth two, and the biggest outer square is worth one point. Instruct kids to encourage one another as they take turns. Kids get a bonus point if they use their beanbag to move someone else’s into a higher point area. Each kid gets three turns and the one with the most points at the end of three turns earns the right to go first for the next game.

What You Say:

“Sometimes it can be hard to encourage our friends, especially when we are competing against them. [Apply] But be sure to encourage each other all the time, even when you would rather win for yourself. [Impress] Friends encourage one another. You guys did a great job of encouraging one another during that game.” [Personalize] (Tell kids about a time you felt encouraged by something someone did or said.) Catch On #3 Stepping Stones (memory verse activity) What You Need: prepared “Stepping Stones” (Activity Pages), masking tape

What You Do:

Either pre-cut out all stones or get the kids to help you. Use masking tape to tape the words down in order as if it were a hopscotch path. Each pair of stones (stones that were originally on the same page) should be taped in order. Make sure the correct words in each pair are not all on the same side of the path. For example, the first

sentence will look like this on the path:

–  –  –

Then instruct kids to travel down the path while only stepping on the stones with the correct words on them.

Then do it again and instruct them to move faster. You could also have them move down the path in different ways, like hopping on one foot, taking two-footed jumps, or tiptoeing.

What You Say:

“It’s easy to love and encourage our friends when we are having fun together and when everything is going well.

It can be harder, though, to be there for our friends when things aren’t going so well. Sometimes we might feel like we don’t know what to say or we don’t know what to do. But this verse tells us that a friend loves at all times.

[Apply] So this week, reach out and encourage your friends no matter what, because [Impress] friends encourage one another.” Give each child a GodTime card. Pass out Parent CUE cards as adults arrive for pick-up.
