God made YOU to follow Jesus!  Yes, I love this statement.  But what does this mean for us as parents and what do we teach to our kids?  This past weekend we talked about someone who RAN AFTER a chariot and then shared about Jesus to the person.   This is what we are called to do as a follower of Jesus.  This week, talk to your kids about who you all should be talking to about Jesus and who he is in your life.  It is also a perfect opportunity to talk to your kids about Jesus as their forever friend.

SUMMER SERVICE PROJECT:  Also, this is a great time to remind you all about our summer missions project.  We are collecting items for kids in our city.  Stop by the welcome center for a complete list or to pick up a card with a specific item on it.  Items include towels, devotionals, bibles, snacks, coloring and craft supplies to name a few.

Hope you are having a great summer!

This Week We’re Discovering

In Acts 8:26-40; we learn more about an encounter between Philip and an official from Ethiopia. As the Ethiopian searched God’s word and had questions about faith, Philip pointed him in the right direction and showed him that Jesus was the answer to those prophecies from long ago.

Bottom Line: God made you to follow Jesus. God wants to have a relationship with us and made a way for that to happen through Jesus. This week, we pray that kids will realize that no matter who they are or what they’ve done that God made them to have a relationship with Him when they believe in Jesus.

This Month’s Memory Verse

God has a plan for each of us. He invites us into the work He’s been doing in the world since the beginning of time to bring people to Him. God made us to be part of that!
