Lesson #1: Be Intentional

  • Big Idea: To be an influential person, you have to be intentional with your actions and be aware of your actions and how they affect others. You have a purpose, and you won’t let anything get in the way of it.

    Great relatable lesson!

    I really appreciate the detail and layout of the whole lesson. It's pretty much all done, you just follow the script. Of course add in as the Lord leads, but it takes a lot of the work out of coming up with a lesson with activities. The kids caught on to the memory verse really well. They really enjoyed the YouTube skit as well.

    Timely material

    I can't wait to start using this excellent unit with class. A biblical view of hot to be a spiritual "influencer."

    Be an influencer for Jesus

    This went very well! The children loved the skit so much they asked to take a copy home!! The color page was a bust - they were not interested in any coloring/drawing… think about crafts more than just a sheet to color …

    I feel that this lesson really opens the childrens eyes that they can help lead people to Christ by doing the right thing. It helps them to realize that they are an influencer.
