We all want our kids to “have faith.” But what does that mean? Where does faith come from? What does faith look like in action, especially when bad things happen or life is uncertain?

Focus: Take a Closer Look is an interactive devotional that helps kids understand what it means to place their trust in Jesus and follow Him every day. By taking a look at the lives of some of Jesus’ earliest followers, we can help kids grow a faith that’s centered around the life, work, and freedom found in Jesus.

After registering, Jodie will send or drop off your child’s devotional book. Each week we’ll meet on Zoom (click the link below) exploring our faith through discussion, prayer and the engaging activities. There is a $20 fee (cost of devotional book).
