Hello Kidventure Families!
In our NEW unit this week “To the Depths” we learned that when trouble or difficult situations come our way we can still praise God. Paul and Silas in Acts 16:16-40 are great models to us of what it means to praise God even when circumstances are bad. I’m reminded of a few times in my life when things got real difficult, but when I chose to praise God anyway, God renewed my strength to help me make it though. I believe that God calls children and families to be a light and example for others though choosing to praise God because He is trustworthy no matter what circumstances come our way. James 1:2 encourages us, “Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.” James was always encouraging us to praise God especially when things get difficult. Our main point is, “When trouble comes I will praise God!” As a family talk about what it looks like for you to praise God even when things are difficult or don’t go your way!
Here are the links for the weekly family devotionals:
During the next 8 weeks we will be on an underwater adventure in “To the Depths!” We will be diving deep into the book of James to discover how God wants us to live. I encourage families to take some time to read through the book of James over the next 8 weeks. Please e-mail me and let me know how God uses it to strengthen your family, I would love to hear about it!
This summer Kidventure (birth through 5th grade) is looking for volunteers (including parents) who would be willing to serve twice on our Summer Relief Crew. At Prairie Heights we like to keep our ministries going strong during the entire summer so we are asking people to help out on the summer relief crew. It’s a great opportunity to serve in your child’s class or just check out what happens in Kidventure. If you’re interested check out this invitation or contact our offices.
Have a great week!
