Family Worship for Sunday, August 9

August Memory Verse:
“I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14

This month our kids are learning that they are wonderfully made in God’s image. We are God’s most special creation! And we are very important to God.

Say: We’re going to talk about things that are important. Do you know what the word important means? It’s something that matters or means a lot.

Say: (Show them examples—or just name the item if you don’t have an easily accessible example) An umbrella. Why is an umbrella important? (Pause.) We use umbrellas to keep us dry in the rain.

Ask: How about this one? Soap. Why is soap important? (Pause.) We use soap to wash the germs off our hands and our bodies.

Ask: And what about this? A toothbrush. Why is a toothbrush important? We use a toothbrush to clean our teeth.

Ask: What about this one? Shoes. Why are shoes important? We wear shoes to protect our feet. Last one.

Ask: What is this? (Hold up your Bible.) It’s really important. It’s a Bible. Why is a Bible so important? A Bible is important because it teaches us all about God and all the things He made.

Say: Today in our Bible story, we will hear how you and you and you (point to each of your kids) are important to God. You are so important that God knows the number of hairs on your head. Isn’t that amazing!

Family discussion and prayer:

Say: Today, we learned that God knows how many hairs are on our head. Every. Single. One. Can you even IMAGINE counting all the hairs on someone’s head? God even knows if ONE hair falls out. Do you know what that means for you? It means that you are important to God! No matter where you go. You’re important to God when you’re at the dentist! You’re important to God when you’re in timeout. You’re important to God even when you’re asleep! You’re important to God when you’re in the front of the line or anywhere in the line. You’re important to God when you’re sad or happy or mad or even silly! Isn’t that wonderful? We are important to God! He made each and every one of us. God made you, and you are important to Him. Who made you? God made me. Kids Respond: “God made me!”

Say: Let’s do our Bible verse together! I am (point thumbs to chest) fearfully (right arm muscle) and wonderfully (left arm muscle) made, (clap hands together) Psalm 139:14.” (Hold hands open like a book.)

Pray: Dear God, thank You for making (name each child). Maybe, [child’s name] has [number they guessed] hairs. Maybe, [child’s name] has [number they guessed] hairs. (Continue with each child and the number they guessed.) We don’t know the exact number, but You do! Because we are that important to You. Thank You for loving us like You do, God. We love You, too. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Something to Do: Review the story by acting it out

Say: In our Bible story, we learned that God made all the animals, and God made you! Everything God made is special, and He knows everything about them. God made some animals with lots of fur, like bears. Can you pretend to be a bear? Walk and talk like a bear with me. (Demonstrate.) Nice job!

Say: God also made cute little furry bunnies. Can you pretend to be a bunny? Hop like a bunny with me. (Demonstrate.) Bunnies also wriggle their noses. Can you wriggle your nose? (Demonstrate.) Tigers also have fur. Can you pretend to be a tiger with me? (Demonstrate.) Nice! God also made animals that have feathers. Birds have feathers. Can you pretend to be a bird with me? Let’s flap our wings and tweet like a bird. (Demonstrate.) Good job!

“God made fish, too! Can you swim around with me? (Demonstrate.) Everybody sit down where you are. (Pause.) God made more than just animals. He made everything! The most special thing God made were people like you and me! God made people with blond hair. If you have blond hair, stand up. (Pause.) God made all of our friends with blond hair. (Name all the friends with blond hair.) Okay, sit down friends. (Pause.) God made people with red hair. If you have red hair, stand up. (Pause.) God made all of our friends with red hair. (Name all the friends with red hair.) Okay, sit down friends.”

“God made people with brown hair. If you have brown hair, stand up. (Pause.) God made all of our friends with brown hair. (Name all the friends with brown hair.) Okay, sit down friends. (Pause.) God made people with black hair. If you have black hair, stand up. (Pause.) God made all our friends with black hair. (Name all the friends with black hair.) Okay, sit down friends.”

After the Activity: “God made each and every one of us, and He knows the number of hairs on each of our heads! God made you special and loves you very much. You are important to God, no matter where you go. When you’re at the dentist, in timeout, when you’re asleep, when you’re sad, happy, mad, or even silly, you’re important to God. Isn’t that wonderful? We are all important to God! He made each and every one of us. Who made you? [Bottom Line] God made me.”
