DOUBLE DOG DARE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON NOAH, BABEL, ABRAHAM, LOT
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: We can obey God by putting God first.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

“I double dog dare you!” Those five words can either make us really nervous or make us really brave. In this series, we’re not talking about the kind of dares that challenge you to drink a liquified Happy Meal or lick a frozen telephone pole. We’re talking about a better kind of dare — the kind of dare God gives us when He calls us to do something big and bold in His name. In this 4-week series from the book of Genesis, kids will hear the stories of people who responded to God’s call with either fear or courage. They’ll be challenged to obey God even when others aren’t, to obey God by putting Him first, toobey God even when they don’t understand, and to obey God by turning away from sin.

We can probably all agree that kids spend more time staring at screens than what’s healthy. But that doesn’t mean we should discount screens entirely. Try to think of was you can use technology to connect more deeply with the kids you lead. Here’s a video to get you thinking . . . 

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