All Access Acts 5 - Stand Up Guys

The book of Acts contains amazing stories of faith and courage. It is easy to think of these heroes as being extra special or extra spiritual, but they were ordinary people, just like us! Kids can be challenged to be bold and brave for God in their neighborhoods and schools!

Bravery / Witnessing
All Access Flatman and Bobbin Discover the Trinity (#5)

The Bumbling Duo Discover and Discuss the Trinity.  

Trinity
All Access Acts 4 - Godly Gals

Mother's Day
All Access Flatman and Bobbin Save Mother's Day! (#4)

The bumbling duo saves the world from a mother who was forgotten on Mother's Day—and all children are warned to love their mothers.

Mother's Day
All Access Acts 3 - The Encourager

Everyone loves to be encouraged! We all like compliments and pats on the back. Barnabus was given his name because he was known for encouragement. This lesson’s aim is to challenge kids to become encouragers – to be the kind of kids that build others up rather than tear others down. Our human instinct when we are hurt or attacks is to tear the other down, but in this lesson they will learn that when they build others up – everyone succeeds!  

Barnabus
All Access A Fresh Start

A complete lesson with MANY activities on the theme of the new year. Use the whole lesson or just parts of it.

New Year's Lesson
All Access Acts 2 - Bad Guy, Turned Good

Every kid has people in their life that seem hopelessly lost. Bullies that pick on them, or stuck up girls that look down on them, or mean adults who make life hard. It is easy to write them off as ‘bad people’ but kids need to learn that everyone is loved by God and no one is a ‘lost cause’ or beyond God’s reach. It may surprise them to learn that the Apostle Paul was once an arch enemy of God – he deserved to be ‘zapped’ but God chose instead to forgive Saul and turn his zeal and energy to good, and renamed him Paul. Kids need to pray for and be hopeful for even the meanest and toughest people in their lives, if they can learn to do that, they will be started on the path to being a change agent in the lives of others their whole life!  

Conversion of Paul
All Access Acts 1 - The Ultimate Super Hero

This lesson can serve as an Easter lesson as well as an introduction to a unit on the book of Acts. Kids love super heroes because (like adults) kids both wish they were more powerful and that they could have help when in need. Well, Jesus meets both those needs. When we need help – He is there, and He invites us to more than just ordinary people, he calls us to be heroes for him! A hero is someone who puts the needs of others above their own needs, and kids do that every time they witness for God! Jesus proved he was the ultimate super hero because not only could he do amazing things, but he did something no else had ever done or ever will do: He was able to raise Himself from the dead! And if he can raise himself, he most certainly can raise us too!

All Access Evolution: Don’t Buy the Lie

Evolution is not a science, it is a theory that turns to science for evidence, but IT is not science. Creation and evolution are the same in that regard – what differs is the evidence!

Evolution
All Access Adam and Eve: The Biggest Boo-Boo Ever

This lesson introduces children to the origin of sin into our world, but also touches on the appeal of sin that remains even today. The creation lesson laid the foundation for our creation and our being made ‘free’ and the last lesson on being made in the image of God that is stained, this lesson will bring them together with Adam and Eve’s fall with a two-fold application. First, that Jesus has provided salvation, and secondly, that we need to fight temptation daily so that we don’t also make mistakes (sin) that can have long lasting consequences.

Origin of Sin
