(Auto advance) Series Title Slide: Worth It
It’s so fun singing with you, Kid-O’s! You can sit down. This series is called “Worth It,” because we’re talking about how we can be wise with money. Making wise choices with our money is totally worth it. Know This: Be sure to place all of the forest creatures and their letters before the hour begins. (They are: Rocky, Tweet, Mr. Bear, Ollie Owl, and Ellie Elephant.)
Kid-Os, there are forest creatures all around this stage, who want to help us learn today. The first one we need to find is Rocky the Raccoon. Do you see Rocky around here? Do This: Find the Rocky figurine. Open the letter underneath him.
It looks like Rocky has a letter for us! This says it’s time for our Bible Adventure! Let’s go! Bible Adventure Jingle Do This: Show kids the Bible.
Kid-Os, the Bible is a book all about God. Since our world began, people have been learning about God, and when they saw God do something amazing, or learned something new about him, they wrote it and put it in this book. Today we get to hear about a young man named Timothy. Do This: Get the Bible storybook out and sit down in the chair.
Worth It Lesson 4 November 10/11 6
This story you are going to hear comes from the Bible, but we use this storybook because the pictures help us imagine what it might have looked like back when the Bible was written. The pictures you see in here are the same as the ones on the screen. Let’s get started!
Do This: Have kids help you “turn” the pages on the screen with an exaggerated arm wave. Picture 1: Timothy
Timothy was a young man when someone named Paul told him about Jesus. Before long, Timothy loved Jesus, and wanted to live like Jesus did. Timothy learned so much and was so wise, that Paul even trusted him to lead a church. Picture 2: Timothy writes to Paul
When Timothy had problems, he would write to Paul for advice. One time, Timothy asked Paul what to do about some people who were being mean and making unwise choices, especially with their money. Picture 3: Paul writes to Timothy
Paul gave Timothy some great advice. He wrote that people should trust God more than money. Paul wrote that people who have money should do good things with what they have. They should be willing to share with others. Picture 4: Timothy talks to the church.
Paul knew that being kind and wise is more important than having a lot of money. We don’t know exactly what the people in Timothy’s time decided to do, but Paul’s advice is still really important today. Series Title Slide: Worth It
Great job listening, Kid-O’s! The way we spend our money is super important. Let’s see, Tweet has the next letter for us, do you see a blue bird named Tweet up here? Do This: Find Tweet, and open up the letter underneath her.
Tweet’s letter says it’s time to learn our Memory Verse! Worth It Lesson 4 November 10/11 7
Memory Verse Jingle (Auto advance) – Memory Verse: Proverbs 13:11- Money gathered little by little grows.
This memory verse tells us something important about the way we use our money. Here’s what it says! Do This: Read the verse from the screen.
What we do with our money is important. When we give and save it, those are wise choices, but we also need to be wise when we spend our money, like Paul told Timothy in our Bible Adventure. Let’s practice saying that verse together!
Do This: Practice the verse with the Kid-Os 2-3 times. Begin with your “quiet voices,” then do it in your normal voices, and finish with your super-duper loud voices! Know This: The verse with actions goes like this: Proverbs 13:11 (Open your Bibles). Money gathered (Bring hands together in cupping motion) little by little (put fingers up in “little” motion) grows (arms out wide).
Great job practicing your Memory Verse, Kid-Os! Let’s stay on our feet and get ready to sing and worship God!
This song is about how we can share God’s love with others. Song 2: Go

This is the time where we get to try out what we’ve learned today. Mr. Bear sent us something else, too! It’s in our box over here. Do This: Go to one of the boxes on stage, and take out the teddy bear. Teddy Bear picture
This is a teddy bear! It’s kind of cute.
Do This: Point out the price tag on the teddy bear.
Oh, what’s this? This bear is for sale. Kid-Os, have you ever bought something with your own money? Kid-O buying something picture
When you want to buy something, you need money. Some things are more expensive than others, because they are harder to make, or are just worth more. If you have enough money, you can give it to the worker at the store, and they’ll give you the thing you are buying. If you don’t have enough money, you might just have to wait and earn some more, then come back and buy the thing you want.
Worth It Lesson 4 November 10/11 9
It can be a lot of fun to buy things, but remember our Bible Adventure? It’s important to spend our money wisely. Let’s think about it. If what I say is a wise choice, give me a thumbs-up! If it’s not a wise choice, give me a thumbs-down. Candy picture
You have ten dollars, and you spend it all on candy. Then, you eat all the candy right away. Is that a wise choice? NO. No, it probably isn’t. Kid-O buying something.
You’ve been saving up money, and have enough to buy a special toy at the store! You have a little left over, so you decide to save it. Is that a wise choice? YES! Yes, it feels good to buy something with your own money, and saving what’s left is a very wise choice, too. Movie picture
You want to buy a new movie, but your grown-ups say you shouldn’t. You decide to buy it anyway while they’re not looking. Is that a wise choice? NO. No, even if you have your own money, you should obey your grown-ups if they say not to buy something. Series Title Slide: Worth It
You can make wise choices when you spend money. We can buy nice things, and choose not to buy things that aren’t good. That’s what Timothy learned in our Bible adventure, too! When he had questions, he asked Paul, who was a grown-up he trusted a lot. Your favorite grown-ups are great people to help you when you have questions about money, too! Way to go Kid-O’s, you were such great listeners. We have another wise friend, Ollie Owl, who has a letter for us! Do you see Ollie Owl up here? Do This: Find Ollie Owl, and read his letter.

God loves us all so much. He loves it when you make wise choices, and when you spend time talking to him. Let’s do that right now! Let’s put our hands in our laps and close our eyes to help us focus on what we’re saying to God. If you want to, you can repeat this prayer after me. Dear God, we love you. Thank you for loving us. Help us spend our money wisely. Amen. Kid-O-Deo Slide
