Generosity is a reflection of the character of God. WEEK 1 Key Question: What do you have to give? Kids don’t immediately know what they have to offer. They don’t have a lot of money, and may not have a lot of stuff either. Thankfully, generosity isn’t just about money and stuff. Kids will discover the heart of generosity and realize that they have more to give then they might have thought.

Gratitude is a response to the character of God. WEEK 1 Key Question: What are you grateful for?

Stewardship is a response to the character of God. WEEK 1 Key Question: How can you treat everything like it belongs to God? It’s hard for anyone to refocus how they think about their stuff. This is especially true for kids. We hope to guide kids through the process of realizing that what they have is a gift on loan to us from God. Because of that, how we take care of what have matters. We want kids to walk away with a plan for how they will treat what they have like it belongs to God—because... Read More
