BLAST OFF: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON DISCIPLESHIP
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: People can help our faith grow.
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. These are the 4 keys to discipleship that will help kids launch their faith.
This week, remember that even little kids can make a big impact on the world. The boy in this video was 9 years old when came up with an idea that spread across the world that is helping eliminate loneliness and fostering inclusion and friendships among kids. This week’s lesson is all about our relationships with others. Watch this video to see how one young boy is making a difference around the world. You can encourage the kids in your group to come up with their own ideas to show kindness and build friendships in their schools and neighborhoods.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
