Heart of a Hero Volunteer Email 1 - Grow Youth & Kids Ministry Curriculum

We probably all love stories of bravery and rescue as super heroes saving the day! This month, we’re starting a new series that’s all about heroes. We’ll learn about how God helps us be heroes. 

Here’s what’s coming up in our ministry . . .

HEART OF A HERO: A 5-WEEK SERIES ON JOSEPH
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: Jesus is our hero. 

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Everyone loves a good superhero story, and every superhero story has a few things in common. No superhero started out as a superhero — they became heroes because of the way their circumstances shaped them, because of the choices they made, and because of the ways they decided to stand up for others. There aren’t any superheroes in the Bible, but there is someone named Joseph who both experienced injustice and let God use him to fight injustice, just like Jesus did. In this 5-week series, kids will discover that Jesus is our hero, God helps us become heroes, heroes make wise choices, heroes help others, and heroes need help too.

This month, we’re talking about heroes. Think about the people who made the most impact on your life: the heroes in your life. You can be that kind of hero to a kid now. You don’t have to be the coolest or most courageous person in the world: you just have to show up and be there. 

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #10 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!
