School is starting back up, and that means the church is gearing up for fall programming. Though most ministry settings will look vastly different this year, we can still celebrate special milestones for kids and teens.
This week, check out this space on our website and/or watch our social media to participate in our Virtual Spirit Week. Each day features a special theme and video. You're invited to dress up for the theme, take a picture, and post it to social media — Facebook, Twitter or Instagram —using the hashtag #GPSpiritWeek in your post.
We close out our Virtual Spirit Week by celebrating our schools. Wear some gear from your school today. Be proud — whether you are going back to school in person, online or a mixture of both.
Our schools have people of all kinds of backgrounds, interests and talents. It’s like all the believers in Jesus as our Lord and Savior. We all have talents and gifts to serve Christ and to help each other. Take time today to think about what your special talents are!
Through the story of Samuel being called by God overnight, we learn about a bedtime prayer. Samuel learned to listen for God and to do what he was instructed. Samuel grew up to be a great prophet. There is no telling what you might become when you listen to God!
If all of us could live up to the commandments to love God and love our neighbors, then our love would overtake any kind of ill will we have toward other people. Learn how love helped one person step out and show their joy by what they wear, including with hats!
Learn how having Jesus in your life helps you gain the super power to spread the love of God in your school and among your friends.
Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. starts off our virtual Spirit Week with a message from Hebrews 12:1-3. He talks about the importance of endurance as we practice our faith.
