CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE 4 SPIRITUAL HABITS
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: KNOWING GOD IS AN ADVENTURE, NOT A FORMULA

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Whether it’s a journey to Mordor, The Upside Down, outer space, or wherever Forky ran off to this time, we all love a great adventure story. Maybe that’s because, deep down, we know we’re designed to live an adventure story of our own — and with Jesus, we can. There is no greater adventure than the journey of knowing God more deeply, so in this 4-week series, we’ll talk about for ways we can do that: by spending time with God, spending time with others, sharing our stories, and using our gifts to serve others.

It can be a challenge to figure out how to disciple teenagers, or to know whether or not you’re making a difference. If that sounds familiar, try thinking about spiritual growth in terms of these four spiritual habits: spending time with God, spending time with others in healthy community, sharing your story, and using your gifts to serve.

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #7 from your Volunteer section.

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