God give me good friends
The friendship between David and Jonathan in 1 Samuel 18:1-4; 20 is a great example of the kinds of friends God wants to give us. Using this story, we want your preschooler to know that because God made you, He knows how important good friends are in your life. So He is faithful to make sure you have opportunity to have good friends.
Make it Personal this week by reading the story of David and Jonathan in 1 Samuel 18. Are you faithful to cultivate friendships like this in your life?

Stewardship is taking care of what you have
because it all belongs to God.
This month we launch into the topic of Stewardship. We’ll invest time in Mark 10:17-22 to see what scripture says about the things we have. We want your child to walk away understanding that…
When you trust God, you understand that everything belongs to Him.
In Mark 10:17-22, Jesus encounters a rich young ruler that didn’t understand this principle at all. He believed everything he had belonged to him. And that made it difficult to give it up to follow Jesus.
Make it Personal by asking yourself this question…
“What am I not willing to give up in order to follow Jesus?”
Your answer to this question will not only deepen your faith, but will further shape your child’s.

Epic Fail – Week 3
This week we’re diving into Romans 8 to learn more about the very thing that plagues us all… Sin. Your preteen doesn’t just need to know what sin is, but they need to know how to deal with it. As they grow in their faith, their ability to face their sin and embrace Christ’ solution to it is critical.
Sin has a way of destroying our spirits through guilt, shame and ultimately captivity. Three things Christ doesn’t want for us. Walking through Romans 8 together will coach your tween to recognize the effects of sin and teach them the steps to overcome.
Make it Personal this week by reading through the following references:
Romans 3:23; 6:16; 6:23; 8:39;
