kids… Thank you in advance for your help.

_____ Lesson 46: Star Wars
Power Point: My fight is against spiritual forces.
Memory V.: We are fighting against forces and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers in
the spiritual world. (Ephesians 6:12)

Lesson overview
In this world, our fight isn’t against flesh and blood. “We are fighting against forces and authorities and against
rulers of darkness in the spiritual world” (Eph. 6:12). Our fight is against spiritual forces builds up attitudes and
strongholds. And when faced with trouble, we know that it’s not flesh and blood that will help us out of it; it is Christ in us
who gives us the strength and the power to overcome the enemy. “Let the mighty strength of the Lord make you strong”
(Eph. 6:10)
This week in KIDS Church, you have the opportunity to share with your kids that they are well-equipped by God
to face anything that may come their way. They have the full armor of God at their disposal so that they can defend
themselves and stand firm through any battle. (See Ephesians 6:13) With the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of
righteousness, the belt of truth, feet ready with peace, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit, God has given your
kids—even at their age—everything they need to defeat the civil one. More than anything, today is the perfect time to
remind them that when they are “clothed with Christ,” they are ready for battle—anytime, anyplace. (See Colossians 3:10)
Take time this week to break down the concepts of “God’s armor” and “being clothed with Christ” down to a
practical, everyday-living level. Help your kids see that play-yard skirmishes are not the real battles worth fighting in this
world. And in that spiritual world is where our fights take place. When your kids discover today’s Point, My fight is
against spiritual forces, their perspectives will be changed forever…and they will each truly become a force in this world!

Going deeper
Start a discussion with your kids about what the Bible means when it uses terms like “helmet of salvation” and
“breastplate of righteousness.” Talk about practical ways they can “put on” this armor. Make sure your kids understand that
though God is spiritual, our fight is never against Him, it’s against His enemies.

Lesson 47: Success Comes in “Cans”
Power Point: Through Christ, I can do all things.
Memory V.: Christ gives me the strength to face anything. (Philippians 4:13)
Lesson overview
Abraham Lincoln said, “Without the assistance of the Divine Being, I cannot succeed. With the assistance, I cannot
fail,” that is the message for today. With the Holy Spirit working through us, we can do anything that God instructs us to do
and endure anything that comes our way. In short, we can do all things through Christ. There are no trials or pitfalls that
can separate keep us from following Jesus for the rest of our lives.
Today’s Scripture Memory Verse says, “Christ gives me the strength to face anything” (Phil. 4:13). Your kids need
to know that this strength comes through a daily relationship with Him—through reading their Bibles, praying, spending
time with Christian friends, attending church and obeying their parents. As they develop that relationship, they will learn the
depth of God’s love, the voice of the Holy Spirit and the truth of Jesus’ sacrifice. They will know that Jesus’ relationship
cannot be broken by any trial that comes their way.
As this truth becomes more real to them, they can rest, knowing that their futures are secure. They’ll have peace in
their lies—the kind of peace that passes all understanding (see Philippians 4:7)—and it will overflow into every area of their
lives. Their attitudes and relationships will reflect the love of Christ. It is that peace that will guard their hearts and minds.
As you share this truth with them, take the opportunity to encourage them. Some may be facing tough
circumstances—a parents’ divorce, death of loved ones or social troubles. This is a time to teach them how to stand strong
in the midst of those situations. Teach them that even in tough times, they are able to rely on Jesus for answers and have the
peace that comes form knowing that he loves them and I working on their behalf.
Going deeper
Sit down with your kids and share with them any trials you faced when you were their age and how Jesus can help
them through those trials today. If you knew Jesus back then, share how He helped you. When kids see your honesty, they
will know it is OK to go through hard times.
