MEASURE UP! JANUARY 2023
It's 2023 and we are measuring up on all the things about Jesus' early life! Through stories from Jesus' early life and ministry, kids will learn some important truths to help them continue growing: we can love God with our actions, we can follow Jesus, God's words help us make wise decisions God makes us ready at the right time!
WEEK 1: The kids will hear about Jesus at the temple as a boy (Luke 2:41-52) and what others learned from a very wise 12 year old. We'll learn that we can love God with our actions.
WEEK 2: The kids will hear about what when Jesus was baptized at the Jordan River by a very unique man, John the Baptist (John 1:29-42). They'll learn that we can follow Jesus and his amazing example!
WEEK 3: In our 3rd week the kids will hear about how Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by the devil, (Luke 4:1-13) right after he gave us the great example of what it means to follow God through baptism.
WEEK 4: In our last week of measure up we'll hear about how Jesus started his ministry by calling the right people to work together with him, his first few disciples! (Matthew 4:12-23).
