Story Focus:We end the month in Acts 8:26-40 and discover a Jesus-follower named Philip. An angel told Philip to travel toward the desert. On the way, Philip met an Ethiopian official who was reading the Jewish Scriptures. This man had questions, and he asked Philip to help him understand. Philip answered the man’s questions and pointed him to Jesus. The man put his faith in Jesus and was baptized.
Bottom Line: God is with you even when you have questions. We’ll never know everything there is to know, especially when it comes to our faith in God. In order to have confidence, sometimes we have to ask questions about what we don’t know. We pray that kids will discover people in their life who they can trust with their hard questions about life and faith.
Key Question: What questions do you have? We hope that preteens can experience how church can be one of the safest places for them to ask hard questions about their faith. That’s why, in Small Group, we’ll get right to the heart of the matter. We pray that this question will allow kids in your church to be open about what confuses them about God, Jesus, and the Bible. We also hope it offers some comfort. After all, when you realize that everyone has questions about faith, you feel safer to ask your own. This could be a powerful week for your preteens.
