This upcoming semester has been tough to figure out what theme to do next. We’ve been pretty distracted recently, so that doesn’t help, but I’ve also not had something stand out to me like the previous couple of semesters. So, here’s some thoughts. Maybe these thoughts will help others as well.

“Lord, I Need You”

Our very first MightMarks, we did a “Lord, I Need You” theme. We went through eight different things for which we need God. Below are the memory verses that we memorized, one a week. We worked on the song Lord, I Need You and performed it at the end for the parents.

What verse tells us we need God for salvation because we can’t earn it ourselves?

Ephesians 2:8-9

 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

What verse tells us that we need God for wisdom?

Proverbs 3:5-6

 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

What verse tells us God can meet our physical needs?

Philippians 4:19

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

What verse tells us God can give us courage?

Psalms 27:14

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

What verse tells us God uses us to produce fruit?

John 15:5

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

What verse tells us how we can have peace with God?

Romans 5:1

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

What verse tells us God can satisfy us?

Psalms 37:4

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

What verse tells us God gives health to those who fear Him?

Proverbs 3:7-8

  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

Fear Not

Clay came up with this idea a year or two ago, and we never used it. I don’t know that we came up with a song to go with it. Maybe “God Is Bigger Than the Buggy Man” would fit well. Basically, this goes through the different times in the Bible that God tells us to not be afraid. Below are the verses we would memorize.

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. (Proverbs 3:25)

So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. (Hebrews 13:6)

And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected. (Luke 13:32)

Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; (Isaiah 43:5

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: (Revelation of John 1:17)

Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Cæsar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. (Acts 27:24)

Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:31)

Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you. (Deuteronomy 3:22)

 And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face. And the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die. (Judges 6:22-23)

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (II Timothy 1:7)

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. (Matthew 10:26)

So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not. (Zechariah 8:15)

According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not. (Haggai 2:5)

Bible Verse Songs

There are so many Bible verses set to song. We could work on one each week and do a story that goes along with the theme / verse.

  • Phil 4:4
  • 1 John 4:7-8
  • 1 John 3:1
  • 1 John 1:11
  • Ps 61:1-2


Wesley thinks we should do something with Tribes. Maybe something with the 12 tribes of Israel would go with it. My challenge is that I haven’t come up with a main core goal or main lesson, and I haven’t quite figured out how to flesh it out.


God’s creation story is one of the foundation stories of the Bible. We’d love to incorporate many of the lessons from Answers in Genesis that we have learned over the years. In addition, the Buddy Davis songs are fun. We can use those during our song time.
