Our elementary curriculum builds on the biblical foundation laid for kids in preschool. We want them to see the excellent character of our all-powerful God and why He is the hero of every story. We do that by looking at 36 godly character traits – one per month – with weekly Finish Lines that teach kids about God, His Word, and how He can help us reflect His character to the world. Our character trait for May is HUMILITY.
HUMILITY Definition: Having a right view of who God is, who I am, and who you are
THIS MONTH'S Memory Verse: “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” Philippians 2:3-4

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
Armor Making: This week we are going to be forging the armor of God at home! It’s time to be creative, be resourceful, and work together as a family to create your very own armor of God out of regular household items. You can use anything you have around the house to make your own armor like cardboard boxes, tin foil, newspaper, or anything else you have! Once you have forged your armor, take a picture and post using #WMplanokidskit. We look forward to seeing what you create!
