4 ways to make this summer unforgettable for your family

Unforgettable moments matter in our families because while day-to-day consistency is the foundation of our relationships, we remember our lives in moments. From clarifying conversations to breathtaking risks, it’s the moments that stand out over time.

Dreams Come True

Study the life of Joseph with your little ones--from his imprisonment in Egypt to his God-given ability to interpret dreams!

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.  

BRAVE FRIENDS

This month kids will be introduced to more friends in heaven, Saint Stephen and Saint Athanasius. We’ll see how God helped them be brave!

Obedience

Trusting those who lead you by doing what you’re asked to do.

Memory Verse: “Trust in your leaders. Put yourselves under their authority.  Do this, because they keep watch over you.” Hebrews 13:17a

This month we will see the consequences of disobedience (Genesis 3:1-24) as well as God’s glorious promises when we obey (Genesis 6-8).  Even if we think our way is better, or we are not sure how it will all work out – this month we hope to encourage our kids to OBEY God because… God’s plan is always better.

ON A MISSION

 And You Will Be My Witnesses from One End of the Earth To the Other.  Acts 1:8b

 Pentecost is a feast day in the Church where we remember the Holy Spirit descending on the Apostles as they embarked to spread the word of God from one end of the earth to the other.  The verse, however, was not meant to be exclusive – we are also charged with being daily witnesses of our Lord and spreading His good news from one end of the earth to the other.

This summer, we will take a closer look at the book of Acts and discover what it means to be a daily missionary for Christ.  Each day is an opportunity to be on God’s mission in our deeds, words, and interactions with others.

August 4: When you’re on God’s mission, everyone is invited to be on board.

August 11: When you’re on God’s mission, bring the right gear.

August 18: Don’t leave a destination without equipping those you leave behind. 

August 25: Trust God and remember His mission is more important than yours.

September 1: Finally, when you’re on God’s mission, don’t be afraid to rock the boat.

In tracing the journeys of St. Paul, we hope our teens adopt his sense of bravery, boldness, and conviction in our Lord Jesus Christ.  Hopefully they will see their lives not as their own, but one… on a mission.
