We are so excited about the new tool that God has given Crossroads to use – a new building. So, in Kid Crossing, we are using tools and a toolbox to explain Because People Matter to kids.
On Sunday, October 30, we will be presenting the BPM project to the kids. Our large group Bible story is from Acts 2:42-47. We will be learning about how the early church shared life together. Our bottom line for the day is: “Imagine what could happen if everyone used their gifts/tools together.” We will challenge the kids to think about ways they can use their gifts-which are like tools that God has given them – to make a BIG difference for God.
We are providing “My Giving Calendar”, stickers and a paper toolbox for kids to use. Kids are encouraged to use the ideas on the stickers and place them on the calendar when they have completed them. The stickers provide a variety of ideas for kids to do things that may or may not generate a monetary gift. Each week kids will have an opportunity to add any monetary gifts theyʼve collected in their toolboxes to our large Kid Crossing toolbox.
Our goal is not to simply collect money from kids, but to use this as an opportunity for families to grow in generosity.
