Peace: Our Story Continues…

Our Story Continues is our way to connect parents to what kids are talking about and experiencing in the Sunday morning teaching. We want to help to equip parents and spiritual parents with Scripture, talking points, and experiential activities to continue to disciple their kids well every day of the week.

  4. KIND-FULL-NESS Help your child become aware of the many different people in their day who are kind to them, and help your child see the kindness of each person. This means that you and your child will be paying attention to the kindness of the cashier at the grocery store, or the person at the drive-through, or the crossing guard, and seeing the kindness that they pass on.
