We started the summer series today in Journey Kids. It was a lot of fun being in with the 1st-5th graders this week! A few years ago I got to be in there every Sunday with my husband, we stepped into another area, so I don’t get to be in there very often anymore.
It was awesome when the kids had the entire month’s verse memorized by the end of the hour through the activities. We got to eat Candy Ring Pops, watch an awesome video with the lesson, and dig into the Bible. The kids rocked the morning. We even got to hand out a few Journey Bucks to kids who stepped in and helped when others moved on by the mess.
The main phrase this week is “I’m going to follow the star” – meaning I’m going to follow Jesus and His light.
The verse is John 8:12b “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
The kids get sent home with a Fridge Door Card that talks about the main points as well as a God Time Card that has 4 short lessons you can do at dinner or bedtime with your kids. Did you know that if you do the activities with your kids and sign it, they can get a Journey Buck? Ask them what they can get with a Journey Buck! I love the God Time Card because it walk you through a great discussion with your kids without feeling overwhelming.
