TRUE STORY: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE EARLY CHURCH

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Everyone loves a story about a big adventure, don’t they? The best stories are stories of life change, big dreams, dramatic rescues, and journeys to far-away places. Those adventure stories are even better when they’re true stories! In this 4-week series, we’ll follow the true story of the early church. Kids will imagine they are explorers and adventurers as they hear the stories of Saul’s conversion, Peter and Cornelius, Peter’s escape from prison, and Paul and Barnabas’ missionary travels. By the end of this series, kids will learn and remember that Jesus changes lives, Jesus loves everyone, Jesus gives us freedom, and Jesus helps us share His story.

Don’t tell your kid we told you this, okay? But here’s a secret. They’ll never tell you this, but your child wants rules, limits, lines, and guardrails. We’re not saying they’ll agree with every rule you put in place, but really — the guardrails you set let your kids know you care. 

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #4 from your Parents section.

What is your calling as a parent?

In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

In the book Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family, you’ll get a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. 

Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
