Every Number Has a Name, Every Name Has a Story, Every Story Matters to God
- 724 kids
- 225 volunteers
- 22 first timers
Last night, Perry got to come to our campus and share about how each of you are Difference Makers. If that didn't convince you, then I know the Q & A did! We got to see SIX of our kids ask Perry questions from things like "How do I show people Jesus?" to telling him thank you because they love KidSpring, to asking "How do I talk to my friends about Jesus that don't believe in Him?" I'm so thankful for how you INVEST in these kids week after week. It's making a difference!!!
Core Value Focus: CREATIVE BIBLE TEACHING!!!
- Small Group! You get to have conversations with kids each week about who Jesus is and help them solidify our need to know in their heart. The more fun, genuine, and engaging you are with kids when you do small group the better it will be! Kids determine how fun & applicable the Bible is by the way you present it to them! It's always a great idea to read the lesson and the Bible story before Sunday!
- Large Group! The Bible comes to life in Large Group! As an actor, worship leader, or media volunteer you play a HUGE role in this! The more prepared you are, the more confident you'll be as you bring the bible to life in a way that kids can understand! As a room volunteer, you get to participate and set the tone for large group! The more fun you have, the more fun they will have! It's also a great thing to recap what happened in large group as you're in small groups or coloring with your kids!
- LOVE! Jesus said that they will know you by your love for one another! One of the BIGGEST things you can do to show kids Jesus is to love them & be their friend! The best chance a kid may have to personally see God is to get a close-up look at the people who love God. He wired our faith to be influenced by others, and God wired us to love people in such a way that they can see Him working in us.
- You growing closer to Jesus! You're going to serve kids out of the overflow of your heart, so we want to make sure that you're filled up so that you can pour out! One tip that someone gave me was to have a "KidSpring Quiet Time" on Sunday mornings. I'd wake up and read whatever Bible story we'd be teaching in KidSpring for myself & think about what Jesus wanted to teach me through it!
