Journeys for Jesus
Go, go, go share Jesus with everyone you know, know, know!
In this unit, Jesus tells all His friends to go into the whole world and preach God’s Good News. Everyone needs you to share Jesus with them, everywhere you go!
Download Bible App for Kids so you can check out these stories with your kids. They can follow along in the story and have fun bringing the characters to life. Also, check out the Adventure Book we send home with your kids each week so you can help them review the verse and the question and answer that we hope they learn each week.
Standing Up for What's Right Even When Other's Don't
"Don't Ever Get Tired of Doing the Right Thing."
2 Thessalonians 3:13
This month, we will be teaching kids to be REAL LIFE SUPERHEROES and always stand up for what's right even when others don't.
We will be studying the first 6 chapters out of the book of Daniel and how Daniel always showed conviction even if it meant prison, being burned in a fiery furnace, or being thrown to the lions. He only cared about what was right.
SUMMER PRAYER CHALLENGE CARDS
Daniel is infamous for getting on his knees in prayer even when the deed was considered against the law! It is truly this habit that gave Daniel the strength to stand in conviction no matter what.
So… this summer we will have a personal prayer challenge for our kids as well. We are challenging the kids to find at least one day per week to read a Bible passage and do an Agpeya prayer. One day per week – that’s it! The weekly prayer challenge cards will have 4 days per week to choose from. The cards will have a Bible passage and a short question / activity to help our kids pray. After they complete the card, they also have to complete one hour of Agpeya Prayers sometime during the week (ideally the same time).
Every time they bring back a weekly Prayer Challenge Card completed (with at least one box completed) they will win a prize!
Please encourage your kids to participate and maybe you can even use this to refresh your family prayer time. Check out the prayer cards for each week below.
MIDDLE & HIgh SCHOOL
This summer we are spending 2-months (July and August) diving into a really important topic we are calling “The DOUBT FACTOR.”
It is normal to have doubts about our faith – in fact we will constantly be challenged about our beliefs, so it is important to be honest with our doubts and bring them to God. We hope to help our teens do that in an edifying way this summer.
August 5: Is being a “good person” (without believing in God) – good enough?
August 12: Who is Jesus, and what proof is there that He rose from the dead?
August 26: COMPETITION-At the end of the summer, we will turn the tables on our teens and ask students to convince us, the volunteers, of a timeless truth.
