WE ARE FAMILY: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON FAMILY

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Every family is different, but there’s one thing every family has in common: no family is perfect. No matter what your family looks like, it definitely has its own unique quirks, traditions, jokes, feuds, and flaws. The families we read about in the pages of Scripture are no different. In this series, kids will be introduced to one ordinary family in the Bible that God chose to use in extraordinary ways. Eventually, this family became the family that brought Jesus into the world! In this four-week series about the family of Abraham, kids will learn that we can trust God with our familyGod takes care of our familiesGod helps us be honest with our families, and God wants to help families heal.

As your kids prepare to start a new school year, remember your words can speak life and have power in their lives. Make the most of the opportunities you have to encourage them, calm them, and speak peace and truth into their lives. 

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #7 from your Parents section.

As your kids go back to school this month, here’s a fun and simple way to encourage them during the day: write a simple, encouraging note, prayer, or Bible verse, on an index card, sticky note, or on one of these LunchBox Notes, and slip it in their lunchbox or backpack. 

We might be a children’s ministry, but kids aren’t our only priority. We’d love to hear how we can better serve you and your family, too. So we’d love it if you’d complete a quick survey so we can learn from you. [Attach or link to the Annual Parent Survey.]
