Message to Parents
How many times in this life have you thought about saying something or standing up for something you believed in but didn’t have the courage to do it? This week in Grove Kids…we learn from the example of Stephen and what it looks like to stand up and use your voice for what is right.
-Pastor Clark and the Grove Kid Leaders.

Keep Holding On
Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don’t give up.
Galatians 6:9, NIrV
Keep going because God knows the end of the story.
Determination—Deciding it’s worth it to finish what you started
I can trust God no matter what.
In Acts 6:8-7:60, we find a somber moment in the life in the early church. Stephen, a church leader, was arrested and put on trial for teaching about Jesus. Even as he was being stoned to death, Stephen showed determination. He boldly shared how Jesus was the Savior God promised from the beginning. Stephen was willing to die for his faith because he believed that Jesus was truly the Son of God.
Bottom Line: Keep going because God knows the end of the story. When it comes down to it, most of our fear comes from being unsure of what will happen next. It’s all too easy to go to the worst-case scenario in the situations we face. Thankfully, no matter what difficulties we may face in life, we can trust that God will help us face them. God can give us the strength and courage we need to get through every moment.
For Our Parents
Speaking of having a voice when it counts…believe it or not, our kids are learning from watching what we do more than what we preach to them! I know that’s not life changing in itself but what if what we’re doing it wrong…even though it might be funny or playful to us, our actions might be hurting them in the long run. This quick article gives a little perspective on accidentally raising our boys to be mean but the same applies for our girls. Hope this helps!
