Distinct

DISTINCT: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT IDENTITY
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: We can celebrate our distinctions.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

If someone asked who you are, what would you say? Maybe you’d say your name. Or maybe you’d say, “I’m a musician. A basketball player. A friend. A daughter or son. I’m a human!” Those things might be true, but have you ever felt like you’re still figuring out who you are, what you’re good at, or why you’re here? In this 4-week series, the stories of Jesus and John the Baptist, and the words of Paul, will help us see why discovering who Jesus is helps us discover who we’re meant to be. Not only is Jesus is distinct from anyone who has ever lived, but God made us distinct too, with distinct gifts we can use to serve God and others, and unique distinctions that are worth celebrating.

Now that we’re into a new year, it’s a good time to pause and reflect on the impact we’re making. Are you making a difference in the lives of the kids you lead? (Of course you are!) But check out this PODCAST for a heartwarming story on how to know for sure. 

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