Knowledge is discovering something new so you can be better at whatever you do. We believe that God’s Word is the best place to discover something new about our world and ultimately ourselves. And when we put those discoveries into practice it changes us from the inside out and impacts the choices we make and the way we live. God is the source of all truth. We need to dig into His Word and discover that truth for ourselves.
The knowledge we glean from the 66 books of the Bible tells us how to live our lives day in and day out. But that knowledge is not an end in and of itself. We can know all there is to know about God, but if we don’t put any of our knowledge into practice, it is worthless.

Praise and Worship with fun songs and movements. Lately we have been singing a bunch of songs from year’s past VBS.
A cool experiment that ties in with today’s lesson. If you ever come to 11am service, I repeat the experiment for the children there.
The children are divided into two smaller groups and attend the first of two breakout sessions. . Group A goes to Games/Object lesson and Group B goes to the prayer wall. The games are always a hit but the surprise to me has been the way the children have taken to the prayer wall portion. This is what we do. The group gathers around a big table and we have a huge sheet of paper and a bunch of colored markers. Each student is then given the opportunity to draw a prayer request or write it out. After we have collected all of the prayer requests, we go around the room and pray for each other and at the end of the day, one of the children takes the wall home and prays for the request every night. It’s really been a great experience.
10:20 - 10:35
Head back to large group, sing a worship song, take an offering, and have a child end the service with a prayer. (Our offerings go to support a young man named Julio Fuentes Gonzales. A 12 year old boy from Honduras that is part of the Support a Child Program of Compassion International).
