DOUBLE DOG DARE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON NOAH, BABEL, ABRAHAM, LOT
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: We can obey God even when others don’t. 

SERIES OVERVIEW:

From the very tops of its mountains, to the deepest depths of its oceans, planet earth is pretty incredible — and none of it was created by mistake! On the very first page of the Bible, we see that our planet, galaxy, and universe were all created with love and care by the same God who loves and cares for each of us. In this five-week series through the story of creation, kids will discover that the Bible tells God’s story,thatGod created the whole world, that God created us in His image, and thatsin separates us from God.

Let kids hear their name spoken out loud this week. Whether you’re praying for them, encouraging them, or even letting them hear you saying good things aboutthem to others! Hearing their name is a game changer for kids and shows them they’re valuable.  

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #6 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!
