Courage is being brave enough to do what you should do, even when you’re afraid. Courage is not the absence of fear but how you respond in the face of fear. When we approach potentially scary situations, we can remember that God is always with us. We can trust that He’ll provide for our needs and is big enough to handle any circumstance.
The monthly memory verse for our new preteen series is: “When I’m afraid, I will trust in You,” Psalm 56:3, NIrV. Many of God’s followers will tell you their greatest adventure started when they trusted God in a decision they were afraid of. But in the end, they never regretted living courageously and believing God’s promises.
Week One’s Bible story begins this Friday with the story of Joseph. Joseph lived a life of courage (Genesis 30, 37, 39-46). Joseph remained faithful to God regardless of the circumstances, trusting that God must have a bigger story at work. Through Joseph’s story we can learn that: I can be brave because I know God is with me.
As preteens wade through a new school year, sports team, or art class, they can push past their fear knowing God is with them.
Our Preteens (4th & 5th Graders) meet scheduled Fridays, beginning Friday, September 27th from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Sunlight Community Church.
