NOT NORMAL: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON JESUS’ EARLY LIFE AND MINISTRY
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: Jesus is perfect.
Why be like everyone else when we can be wacky, backward, and weird? We can try to blend in and be like everyone else, or we can stand up and stand out. After all, that’s what Jesus did! When Jesus showed up, His whole life seemed not-so-normal to most people. From His childhood to His early ministry, it was clear from the beginning that Jesus wasn’t like most people. In this 4-week series, kid will examine the early life and ministry of Jesus as they discover that Jesus is not normal, that Jesus is God, that Jesus is perfect, and that Jesus invites us to be not-so-normal along with Him.
It can be tempting to focus on making sure kids learn facts in children’s ministry, but remember, the most important thing they can learn is that God loves them, and that can be learned from relationships. Small group time is key because this is when kids can discuss, imagine, ask questions, and build connections. This week, remember the importance of connecting with kids in relationship and helping them connect with God.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
