TRUE STORY: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE EARLY CHURCH
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: Jesus changes lives.
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.

Movement is important to kids, so make the most of every opportunity to get the kids moving! Instead of trying to get them to sit still, try to move around with them as much as you can. They love seeing their leaders run around during game time, dance during worship, sit on the floor during discussion time, and walk with them to the door to say goodbye.
If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #4 from your Volunteer section.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
