Preschoolers love to show adults how BIG they are . . . “Look at my BIG muscles! Look how BIG I can jump! Look at this BIG bite!” We don’t have to teach a preschooler to show everyone how big they are.
And, if we’re all honest, there’s something deep inside us that wants to do something big, too. We want to show the world that we can do things that matter— things that really matter. Could it be that we were all made to do big things? We think so.
That is why we have planned an entire month around what being a Super Kid really looks like—doing the things God made us to do. God made us to do BIG things!
November 14th the service will be a serve service as we prep boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Kids will be included in the fun! Please sign up to bring supplies!
November 28th the Sunday after Thanksgiving, all of RLC will be online. Join us via the link on the church website for the Sunday service. And check out the Bible Story Video link for the kids’ lesson.

Lessons, Activities, and Resources-
- We often describe gifts as things we are good at, but our character traits are gifts from God. Think of a trait someone might have (honesty, quietness, bravery, loudness, etc.). How can the trait be a gift to use to help others?
- Why do you think we refer to our talents or our traits as “gifts”?
- What if you don’t know what your “gift” is? What can you do to discover what you are good at?
- What skills do we need to follow Jesus? (This question is an opportunity to talk about how anyone can follow Jesus independent of what gifts they have or skills they mastered. A follow-up question could be: When you follow Jesus, how do you reflect Him to others when you use your gifts to help?)
