How You’re Changing Lives
From a parent: [My son] is a firecracker dude … and he’s got energy for days. He’s been going through a lot the last few years—blending family, getting a little sister, going to school, and not seeing his dad consistently—and he’s not the easiest kid to have in class. He … doesn’t seem like he’s even paying attention enough to get anything out of it. A few weeks ago … his AWESOME teachers and I were blown away when he walked out of class and told me that tonight he’s learned, “Goodbye, fear! God is here!” That’s been a turning point in our house, in his classes, even at school. He learned that God will protect him and [my son] has really taken that to heart. We’ve said that phrase together a few nights since then, especially during storms, and I’ve even heard him tell his baby sister not to be scared because God is here. He’s … learning to trust God to be his defender and I can’t thank the awesome leaders in LifeKids enough!
You’re a small group leader, right? So, when do you break into your small groups, and why do we form them when we do?
- When? As soon as clean up time is over, gather a small group of kids around you.
- Why? Kids (and grown-ups, too!) learn better when they share the experience with someone. When you’re in a small group, your kids know who—that’s you—they’re sharing the experience with, and who to talk to about what they’re learning.
- Why? Kids need to feel safe. Part of being safe for a kid is knowing their needs will be met. Small groups give this security because they put every kid within an arm’s reach of a grown-up who can care for them.
