WE ARE FAMILY: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON FAMILIES
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: God helps us be honest with our families.
Every family is different, but there’s one thing every family has in common: no family is perfect. No matter what your family looks like, it definitely has its own unique quirks, traditions, jokes, feuds, and flaws. The families we read about in the pages of Scripture are no different. In this series, kids will be introduced to one ordinary family in the Bible that God chose to use in extraordinary ways. Eventually, this family became the family that brought Jesus into the world! In this four-week series about the family of Abraham, kids will learn that we can trust God with our family, God takes care of our families, God helps us be honest with our families, and God wants to help families heal.

If you want to earn a kid’s trust, consistency is key. You prove you can be trusted when you show up and keep showing up over, and over, and over again. Kids will look forward to seeing you each week, and that makes an impact on them!
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
