We spend a lot of time teaching kids to BECOME...let's focus on equipping kids to BE who God says they
already ARE! The BE- Attitudes are all about who God wants us to BE on the inside; they are HEART
ATTITUDES. When teaching children, our emphasis must be on the heart, not on outward compliance to
rules. And, we must continually remind children that God will HELP them! There is power available to them to live as a disciple of Jesus. There is no possible way to truly live the Christian life, or to fulfill the eight BE-
Attitudes, with human effort. (Without Him we can do nothing! John 15:5)
GOAL: Kids learn to BE who God says they already ARE; and they will learn the "Be-Attitudes" and will be
able to say which number each one is!
It is SO IMPORTANT that children know what to do when they are in trouble! Most inner pain is the result of
wounds that happened in childhood. Let's help children know what to do when pain comes - when they are
hurt verbally or physically; when they are disappointed or grief. Let's help children to grow up whole inside,
not broken. They might always remember what happened, but they certainly don't need to carry the pain.
THIS SERIES has the potential to be ETERNALLY SIGNIFICANT in the lives of the children in your care!
GOAL: Kids learn where to run when they are in trouble, what to do when their heart hurts, and how
power-filled their praise is!
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher, Helper, Comforter, and He helps us to pray. In this module the children will
learn that the Gift of the Holy Spirit is for children (Acts 2:39). They will learn that hearing God's voice should
be a way of life for Christians. (John 10:27 sheep who recognize the Shepherd's voice!) Children should
EXPECT God to communicate with them, and know how to recognize His voice. The children will learn to
receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit by asking; and that included in the gift is the ability to "pray in the Spirit."
They don't have to, but they CAN - it's part of the gift! Lesson #4 gives instructions on how to lead children
into experiencing the fullness of the Spirit and can easily be adapted for your church's specific doctrine.
GOAL: The kids will learn about, and RECEIVE, some amazing things INSIDE the GIFT of the Spirit.
