Special Needs Ministry Modified Elementary Curriculum:
Life App: Resilience—Getting back up when something gets you down
Bible Story: Start Spreading the News (Great Commission and Spread of the Gospel) • Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 1–2
Key Question: When have you felt alone?
Bottom Line: God is always with you.
Basic Truth: I am loved by God no matter what so I can love God, love others, and love life.
Memory Verse: But those who trust in the Lord will receive new strength. They will fly as high as eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not grow weak. Isaiah 40:31 (NIrV)
Ask the following questions and lead the group to discuss:
- How do we know God is always with us?
- When is it hard to feel like God is with you? How do you know He is still with you?
- When have you seen or heard about something happening that you just knew was a “God thing”? (Give a couple examples, such as a family needing some help making rent and a friend just happening to give them the exact amount they need, or someone moving to a new area but they meet their new best friend.)
- Is there something that is getting you down in your life right now where you need God’s power to help you show resilience? Allow kids the opportunity to share.
- Depending on the discussion, consider leading the group in prayer for the situations the kids share before moving on to another activity.
