UNBOXED: A 5-WEEK SERIES ON SPIRITUAL GIFTS
WEEK 2 BIG IDEA: GOD USES MY GIFTS TO HELP OTHERS

SERIES OVERVIEW:

With the holiday season having just passed by, most kids still have the concept of giving and receiving gifts fresh on their minds. While many, if not all, of the gifts that were unboxed at Christmas will eventually fall into disrepair, gifts given by God will never fade! Through this “Unboxed” series, kids will discover what kinds of gifts those are, starting with the fact that everyone has special gifts! Then they will see how God can use those gifts to help others, among those gifts being special blessings from God, as well. Our gifts help us care about what God cares about, by focusing on heavenly things, and we can trust God with our gifts when we offer it up cheerfully!

“When you become perfect, we no longer can relate to you.” – Lisa Nichols

As you go into the new year, instead of trying to sculpt a more perfect you, embrace the you that you are — imperfections and all! Watch this motivational video from Lisa Nichols and remember that YOU are enough!

 

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