This month we’ll explore the word “service”. What does it mean to serve others in the world? is this what we’ve been tasked to do as Christians?Jesus demonstrated what serving really means by washing His disciples’ feet and even laying down His life for the sins of the world. We reflect His character to the people around us when we lend a hand and serve.
BIBLE Stories each week:
Feb. 6 Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet John 13:1-17
Feb. 13 Meet People’s Needs 1 Peter 4:10-11
Feb. 20 Feeding 5,000 John 6:1-13
Feb. 27 Give in Secret Matthew 6:1-4
All kids have small group leaders who meet with them each week to build relationships and to teach the lessons through games and activities. Research shows that all kids need caring adults in their lives to walk with them on the journey. Our committed leaders understand this mission and have signed on for the year to walk in faith with your kids!
