"Incredible Me!" - One in a Minion! 

One of the greatest difficulties for kids of any age in this world we live is IDENTITY.  The world wants to mold and conform, and when we feel like we don't fit the "norm", we feel left out, invaluable, unloved and down right "weird"!  Well...they say fifty is the new thirty... so these lessons point out that "weird" or "different" can be the new cool!  Each of us is unique...a one of a kind...incredible me!

These are four lessons based on Psalm 139:14 - "I am fearfully and wonderfully made" helping students understand that they matter to God!  They can be incredible because of Jesus and for Jesus right here and right now!

  1. "I am Created" - I am incredible because God created me in His image!  Includes Bible verses from Psalm 139, Genesis & John with an object lesson & game!
  2. "I am Chosen" -  I am incredible because God loves me and has made a way for me to choose Him! A salvation focused lesson based on the life of David and how he was chosen but also chose God.
  3. "I am Christ's" - I am incredible because with Jesus I am never alone; He is always with me and makes me a part of God's family!  Based on the story of Ruth and Boaz.
  4. "I am Called" - I am incredible because God has a plan & purpose for my life! This is shown through the life of John the Baptist.  We make Jesus known to others!

Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
