TRUE STORY: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE EARLY CHURCH
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: Jesus gives us freedom.
Everyone loves a story about a big adventure, don’t they? The best stories are stories of life change, big dreams, dramatic rescues, and journeys to far-away places. Those adventure stories are even better when they’re true stories! In this 4-week series, we’ll follow the true story of the early church. Kids will imagine they are explorers and adventurers as they hear the stories of Saul’s conversion, Peter and Cornelius, Peter’s escape from prison, and Paul and Barnabas’ missionary travels. By the end of this series, kids will learn and remember that Jesus changes lives, Jesus loves everyone, Jesus gives us freedom, and Jesus helps us share His story.

When kids come into the room, make them feel like the most important people in the world in that moment. Give them your full attention and show them that you’re genuinely glad to see them. Make sure you’re prepared to engage with them, and are not scrambling to prepare for the lesson or talking to other leaders as they are arriving.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
