Summer Series "M.O.V.E."
Welcome Hopewell Families!
This Summer we will "Keep Moving" with our active faith Bible Study Series! Join Us.
Following Jesus isn’t boring, it’s exciting! Knowing how much God loves us isn’t something we just keep to ourselves, it’s something so good it can change the world. When we actively seek to obey God and trust Him more and more each day, it changes us. Just like the more times you play a game, the better you get at it, it’s the same with your faith. The more you practice trusting God and living life His way, the better you get at it. In this series kids will play a lot of fun and active games and learn that when God challenges us to “move” by obeying Him, it’s time to MOVE!
Scripture: Genesis 12:1-5, The Call of Abram
When Abram was an old man, God said “Move!” and Abraham obeyed. God promised that Abram would become the father of a great nation, and many years later that promise was fulfilled. Kids will play Simon Says as a reminder that when God calls us, we should obey.
Objective: Kids will learn when God says, “Move!” we should be quick to obey.
Scripture: Exodus 12:21-42, The Exodus
When the time came for God’s people to move out of Egypt, they had to leave quickly. God had protected his people from the ten plagues and he would protect them on their journey. Kids will play Balloon Pass (keep the balloon in the air, don’t let it touch the ground as a reminder of God’s gentleness and protection.
Objective: Kids will learn when we move where God sends us, He goes with us and watches over us.
Scripture: Exodus 14:5-28, Crossing the Red Sea
With Pharaoh’s army on one side and the Red Sea on the other, the Israelites thought they were doomed. But God made a way that surprised them all. Kids will play Camouflage as a reminder that God moves in ways that we don’t expect.
Objective: Kids will learn we can trust God because He moves in ways we can’t see.
BACKWARDS OBSTACLE COURSE
Scripture: Jonah 1-2, Jonah Flees From God
God had a special mission for Jonah. But when God told Jonah to “Move!” Jonah went the other way. Kids will run an obstacle course backwards as a reminder that when we don’t go God’s way, we find nothing but trouble.

Before returning to heaven, Jesus commanded his followers to go and share the Good News with all the world. Kids will play Octopus Tag as a reminder that our mission continues until every person knows Jesus.

Scripture: Acts 8:26-39, Philip and the Ethiopian
When an angel of God said “Move!” Philip obeyed. Because of Philip’s immediate obedience, a man from Ethiopia was able to learn the truth about Jesus, and become a Jesus follower himself. Kids will play Spud as a reminder that when God calls, it’s important to move fast.
