Just For Youth‎ > ‎

Elementary & Middle School Youth

 
 
Martin Luther once asked, “What do we older folks live for if not for the care of the young, to teach and train them?” The importance he placed on education has remained a hallmark of the Lutheran church for centuries, and is truly part of our calling.   
 
 


Can you find a way to use what you learned on Sunday in your school week? 
 Week of:
10.19:  Jonah and the Big Fish  Jonah and the Big Fish
 10.12:  Ruth and Naomi:  Is there anyone in your life that you respect so much that you would be willing to follow them anywhere?  Who is it and why would you follow him/her? 

 10.5:  Elijah and the Widow.  How can you help someone in need?  Go ahead and post below.  
9.28:  David and Goliath.  Age doesn't matter to God.  How does God use your for a greater good?  
David and Goliath Lego Video  Watch this video.  How can you be a hero like David?  Kid President, Everybody is a Hero

9.20:  David is chosen.  God calls us unexpected leaders.  Watch this video and comment below on how you can be a leader for God.  Kid President, Get up and Move

Sometimes it is hard to see how our church life can connect with our home and school life.  
Can the story of the Star Fish fit your life? 
One day an old man was walking down the beach just before dawn.  In the distance he saw a young man picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back into the sea.  As the old man approached the young man, he asked, "Why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?"  The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun.  The old man exclaimed, "But there must be thousands of starfish.  How can your efforts make any difference?"  The young man looked down at the starfish in his hand and as he threw it to safety in the sea, he said," It makes a difference to this one!"

At times in our lives, we are all the old man, the young man, or the starfish.  Sometimes, as the old man, we don't see the purpose to actions.  Sometimes, as the young man, we persevere and make a difference.  And sometimes, we are the starfish who just need a little help.

The rest of the topics that we talked about during Bible School are in the Power Point below.  Check it out.  

 
 We read Psalm 28 and wrote about what it  Mean to us?  What does it mean to you?
 
*We learned that Prayer helps us stand Strong. 
*Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Philippians 4:6.

We made prayer beads using these colors. 

 

*Blue – The Color of Fathers
“Our Father, who art in heaven”

“Hallowed be Thy Name”
*Purple – Is a Majestic Color
“Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done”
*Green – Color of the Earth
“On Earth, as it is in heaven”
*Yellow – Reminds Us Of Wheat
“Give us this day, our daily bread”
*Red – Reminds us of Jesus’ blood
“And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
*Orange – Represents Darkness & Evil
“and lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil.”
*Gold – Reminds Us Of God’s heavenly
kingdom where he reigns forever.
“For
thine
is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory forever, amen.
We learned about Queen Esther and how we can make a difference in the world. 
Being a young adult means exciting years full of new opportunities and experiences, along with challenges and confusion.
 
It’s not about what you are going to be when you grow up. It’s about who you already are and how you are living your life in service to the world.
 
Imagine yourself... being who God created you to be!
