YOU’RE INVITED: A 5-WEEK SERIES ON WORSHIP
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: We can worship God out loud.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

When some people hear the word “worship,” they think of church buildings, or hymns, or special rituals. To some people, worship sounds pretty boring. But that’s not at all how God talks about worship! In the pages of Scripture, we discover that worship is so much bigger than what happens at church — and it’s definitely not boring. Worship is a party! And it’s a party we’re all invited to attend. In this series, kids will be invited to worship God both at church and at home as they learn that we can worship God through prayer, we can worship God by living for Him, we can worship God even during hard times, we can worship God out loud, and we’re all invited to Jesus’ party.

If you’ve ever had a kid ask a question about God that freaked you out, remember that doubts are a normal part of kids’ faith development. The way you respond to questions or doubts can lead kids closer to God. It’s ok to say “I don’t know” or let them know that questions are ok. Check out this great article by Jenny Funderburke Smith about helping kids with doubt.

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