BLAST OFF: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON SPIRITUAL HABITS

SERIES OVERVIEW:
If you’re a grown-up and you’ve been following Jesus for a while, you’ve probably figured out a few ways to grow spiritually. The kids you’re parenting or leading, on the other hand, aren’t grown-ups, so they might need a little help from you to figure out how, exactly, to grow spiritually. So, what should spiritual growth look like for a kid? We like to think about it in terms of four spiritual habits. To help a kid grow spiritually, teach them to spend time with God, spend time with others, use their gifts, and share their story.

 


Spiritual growth should be the lens through which we see everything else we do in our ministries. We believe there are four spiritual habits that help kids (and adults, too) grow closer to God.

SPEND TIME WITH GOD:
In the spring, we go deep into the spiritual habit of
spending time with God through personal spiritual
disciplines, when Easter is on the way and the
unpredictability of school and the holidays will have
leveled off into some stability for your families.
SHARE YOUR STORY:
In the summer, we focus on helping kids develop
the spiritual habit of sharing their stories while your
church prepares for summer mission experiences
and families prepare for a new school year.
SPEND TIME WITH OTHERS:
In the fall, we focus on developing the spiritual habit
of Christlike community when kids are beginning a
new school year, making new friends, and getting
plugged into new small groups.
USE YOUR GIFTS:
In the winter, we focus on helping kids develop the
spiritual habit of knowing and using their gifts to
serve God and others, because during the holidays,
there are lots of service opportunities available.
