Destiny Kids at home

SERIES OVERVIEW:

No matter how many larger than life stories they hear, most kids will always think they are too small or insignificant to make an impact. As a result, "living for God" often ends with church attendance and rarely God will give them the necessary tools to do the right thing for God. In "Crossover," we are meeting everyday people who were led to do extraordinary things through God's gifts of extraordinary peace, strength, courage, and help-all things made available to use today! 


During this time, when we are unable to come together in person, we want to equip our families to continue pouring into Destiny Kids. Below you will find something for you to do with your kid(s) all week long.  We also have virtual life groups as well with the kids. If you are interested in your child joining our virtual life group, email us at dritchie@destinychurch.me


Sermon Sunday

THIS WEEK: Kids will learn about how God called Gideon to save the Israelites from the Midianites.


READ: Joshua 3:10-4:9, Psalm 136

Today's Bible story comes from the book of Judges, chapter 6. This story is about aman named Gideon. Gideon was an Israelite, which means he was a part of God'sspecial family. At this time, the Israelites were really struggling with worshiping idols rather than just God. Does anyone know what an idol is? Yeah, it's something you worship instead ofGod.The golden calf is the most famous one, which Moses had to teach the Israelites to stop worshiping, but there are others throughout history, as well. Worshiping idols does not make God happy, and God was very angry with the Israelites. As a consequence of their actions, the Israelites spent a long time being ruled by a group of people called the Midianites.God appeared to Gideon and said Gideon was going to be used to free the Israelitesfrom the Midianites. Gideon wasn't so sure, though. So, Gideonasked God to prove it.First, Gideon set out a fleece skin and asked God to make the fleece skin wet with dew, but keep all the ground under it and around it dry. Gideon figured that if God did that, then Gideon would take it as a sign that God was going to do as promised and help Gideon free the Israelites. Guess what happened? If your guess was that the fleece got wet, but the ground stayed dry, you are exactly right!But Gideon still wasn't sure, so the next night he asked God to do the opposite. Thistime, Gideon wanted the fleece to be dry and the ground to be wet. Guess what? God Did exactly what Gideon asked! Knowing God was really and truly on his side, Gideon decided to call together an army of Israelites to fight beside him.


 

NEXT WEEK: Kids learn about how God helped Joshua and the Israelites defeat Jericho.
