Faith Kids Current Series:
A 5-WEEK SERIES ON DAVID AND ESTHER
This month, we are talking about being brave! Bravery takes many shapes and forms. Kids are faced with challenges every day that require some level of bravery, such has having to step out of their comfort zones, sticking up for someone or something they believe in, or simply being comfortable with and confident of who they are. The Bible stories about David and Esther in this series may seem larger than life at first. How do I relate to someone who was able to take down a giant with a sling? How can I actually do anything when I don’t have any power or authority – both David and Esther were royals! But upon closer inspection, kids will come to realize that David and Esther had God’s help –a lot of it –along the way. Through these stories, kids can discover small ways they can exhibit bravery, because God knows who they are and God can use their gifts. They will also find that a form of bravery is to show others mercy. Their bravery will be put the test with challenges, but God can help overcome those difficulties, and they can rest assured that God has a plan for their lives!
August 2020 Memory Verse:
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.
