NOT NORMAL: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON JESUS’ EARLY LIFE AND MINISTRY
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: Jesus invites us to be like Him.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

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.

The best thing you can do for your leadership and ministry to kids is connect with God personally in your own life. When you have a close, growing relationship with God, that overflows into your ministry. Your love and passion for God all reflect to the kids. This week, make sure you spend time with God and focus on growing your relationship with Him.

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