FAMOUS: A 5-WEEK SERIES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT ON SOLOMON
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: When we make mistakes, we can make things right.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Lots of kids dream about becoming famous . . . and why shouldn’t they? It sounds awesome to have fans who celebrate your wins with you! On the flip side, it would be pretty tough to have people always watching, even when you’re not having the best day. In Famous, we are going to talk about a family in the Bible who lived in such a spotlight. Through their stories, kids will learn that no matter our celebrity status, we can make things right, God gives us friends, we can ask for God’s guidance, we can give God what we have. Fame and fans may come and go, but you don’t need to be liked by everyone when you’re loved by God!

We believe the work you are doing is incredibly important and there is nobody on earth more qualified to do it. That being said, even the greatest superheroes accomplish more when they are working with a team. We too often associate asking for help with weakness, when in reality, asking for help makes you (and everyone around you) better!

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #1 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!
