WATOTO CHILDREN’S NEIGHBOURHOOD CELL GUIDE FOR WEEK ENDING 15 FEBRUARY 2020

 

Icebreaker: Play the whisper a message game. Let the children make the circle and whisper something to one child and let them whisper it to their neighbour until all the children are done. Ask the last child to tell you what they heard to see if it is the right word.

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. Choose a classic Christmas song to learn. 

Theme: KINGDOM OF GOD

Topic: Return the Tithe (10% of your income)

Objective: By the end of cell, the children will understand what tithe is and why God requires us to return the tithe and its importance. 

Bible Verse: Malachi 3:10-12

Read the verses like two times, first read it alone and then ask the children to read along with you. Please explain what tithe is in a more child friendly definition – (Tithe is returning 10% of our income). please encourage the children that when we return the 10% of our earnings, it could be savings got from our parents or what we have worked for may be washing a car, digging, slashing, etc. God will always bless us in abundance and he will protect us and our properties

Discussion question:

  1. What is Tithe? (Returning 10% of your earnings/income)
  2. Why do we give Tithe? (it is way of worshipping God; it is God’s demand- so we do it in obedience to God’s Command);everything we have belongs to God, so He requires us to return a 10% of what he has blessed us with.

MEMORY VERSE: Malachi 3:10a Bring the full amount of your tithes to the Temple, so that there will be plenty of food there.

WAY OF MEMORIZING: BE CREATIVE

CONCLUSION: Now that we know what tithe is, at do we have that we can tithe on? (Pocket money, piggy bank money, money earned after doing a given job like slashing, washing cars, etc.)

Prayer Time: Pray with the children appropriately.

Announcements:

  1. Please remember to report when you meet with the children and also when you don’t meet.
  2. Have a great week and love you lots in Jesus’ name.

You rock and we love you big time. Children’s Church Team.
