Download the new Children's Cell Report here
Icebreaker: Ask the children which person they love the most. What do they do to show that they love them?
Good reports: Introduce new children and let the children share about last week, testimonies of what God has done. Share your testimony as well.
Praise & worship: Prepare songs of your choice and pick a few of the children to lead others in praise and worship.
Topic: ROLE OF CHILDREN IN GOD’S FAMILY
REVIEW: REVIEW OF THE PREVIOUS LESSONS
Objective: By the end of cell, Children should be able to understand that they have a role to play in the family of God. They don’t have to first grow up to contribute to God’s family. The main role of the children is to love God and love others because our GOD is love.
Bible Verse: Matthew 22:37-39, Romans 13:8-10, 1 Corinthians 13:13, John 14:15 (to be read and meditated upon by the facilitator prior to the cell meeting)
God commands us to love him and to love one another so we are going to look at the different roles we play when showing the love of God to others.
APPLICATION: (Free sharing)
- Sharing (the boy with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish)
- Caring (Miriam cared for little Moses when he was on river Nile)
- Kindness (David was kind to King Saul)
- Respect others (Samuel respected Eli the priest)
- Obey our parents
CONCLUSION: As members of God’s family, God wants us to show love to all those around us and to him as well.
MEMORY VERSE: Romans 10:9. “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
WAY OF MEMORIZING: Assign hand symbols to the words and phrases. For example, touch your lips for “confess”, point to the sky for “Jesus”, touch your chest for “heart” etc. After saying the verse several times with the symbols, see how well the kids can say the verse by themselves while watching you do the hand symbols. Make it fun!
Prayer time: Pray with and for the children that they are guided by God to play their role of loving others no matter what the person looks like or does.
