Jesus Knew He Would Be Rejected :    

The focus of this family time is to use five easy steps to teach your family that God had one rule for Adam and Eve.

Mission Moment

April 2023 Spotlight Update

Ten years ago, Michael and Traci Byrd left an inner-city neighborhood of St. Louis. Now, God called them to move back to this neighborhood to share the love of Christ
with the people living there. God has given Michael and Traci a love for theirneighborhood and given them creative ways to help the people.

The Byrds planted a church called Faith Community Bible Church. They began building relationships with the people by sharing meals with them, offering group cooking lessons, and even taking people to the grocery store. As they find ways to meet the needs of people in the area, they have opportunities to tell them about Jesus.

Tell kids that missionaries have a goal to start 75 new churches in the St. Louis area in the next five years. Explain that missionaries in the area and other Christians hope that starting new churches in St. Louis will help change the city for the glory of Jesus. Pray
for the work the Byrds are doing in their neighborhood of St. Louis. Pray for more churches to be started in other neighborhoods of St. Louis.

    STEP 5. Pray!

  • Ask kids what they want to talk to God about, and pray with them.
