KIDS CARE

U+I

We make choices every day and these choices affect all sorts of things!  It can affect us, our friends, the planet, and our relationship with God. That means we need to think about the choices we make before we make them. As followers of Jesus, we want to make choices that help us and help others too. Ones that are good for the environment and don’t harm the things God has created.  We want to make choices that please God in the way we treat others and help us to know Jesus more.  This five-lesson children’s resource will help you look at some global problems from a biblical perspective. It will also encourage your children’s group to better engage the idea of global disparity through prayer, games, activities, stories, and fundraising suggestions.
