Everyone’s An Artist

  1. What is one way you believe God has gifted you that you wish you could tap into more? What keeps you from doing so? 
  2. What stood out to you from the message? 
  3. Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? If so, how is God currently using your Spiritual gifts?  
  4. Read Romans 12:3-8. 
    1. Make some observations about this passage (What does the text say?):
      • What do you notice and what are you curious about? 
    2. Make some interpretations (What does the passage mean?)
      • What do we learn about God here? 
      • What do we learn about people?  
    3. Now make some applications (what’s my response?)
      • How are you encouraged, challenged, or convicted by this passage? 
      • What needs to change in your life in order to live this out? 
  5. What is one way you can step more fully into the gifts that God has given you? 

Key Scriptures:

Romans 12:3-8


As you’ve shared your gifts with each other, pray for one another- that God would help them step into their gifts, and if they don’t know them, that He would reveal them to them. 

Next Steps: 

  1. For further study on Spiritual Gifts, consider walking through the Spiritual Gifts outcome found here: https://www.gatewaychurch.com/resources/spiritual-gifts/
  2. If you recently made the decision to trust and follow Christ, tell someone about it and register for baptism coming up on July 30th. https://www.gatewaychurch.com/baptism/ 



This week, kids hear about the dream Jacob had and the message he received.

  • THE BIBLE:  Jacob’s Dream: Genesis 28:10-19a
  • THE BIG IDEA: We always belong in God’s family.


Because sometimes you and your kid need a conversation starter that isn’t,  “So . . . how was church?”

  • Have you ever felt like an outsider in a group of people? How did that make you feel?
  • What are some things people do to help you feel like you belong?


This month, your kids are memorizing the Bible verse Galatians 6:10 (NIV), in case you want to work on them together.

  • Preschool: “Let us do good to everyone…” Galatians 6:10a
  • Elem: “Let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10 (NIV)


Next week, kids will hear about Jacob and Esau being reunited after their falling out.
