Heroes are people who are admired because of their courage, achievements, or noble character. We often think of heroes as people who do big, amazing acts of service, but you’re a hero every time you give of yourself to serve the kids in our church.
Here’s what’s coming up in our ministry . . .

HEART OF A HERO: A 5-WEEK SERIES ON JOSEPH
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: Heroes make wise choices.
Everyone loves a good superhero story, and every superhero story has a few things in common. No superhero started out as a superhero — they became heroes because of the way their circumstances shaped them, because of the choices they made, and because of the ways they decided to stand up for others. There aren’t any superheroes in the Bible, but there is someone named Joseph who both experienced injustice and let God use him to fight injustice, just like Jesus did. In this 5-week series, kids will discover that Jesus is our hero, God helps us become heroes, heroes make wise choices, heroes help others, and heroes need help too.
