BLAST OFF: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON DISCIPLESHIP
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: We can share God’s story.

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. These are the 4 keys to discipleship that will help kids launch their faith.

This week’s lesson is all about helping kids share their story with others. Keep in mind that not all kids will have a “before and after” salvation story, but they can still share about God. They can share about who God is and how He has worked in their lives. We will  give them opportunities to practice telling God’s big story and their part in it, what He has done for them. Think about your story with God and how He has changed your life. Share your story with the kids and encourage them to share their stories with each other.

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
