WE > ME {small group lesson}

yesterday, we kicked off our WE > ME unit for kids at willow chicago. it's one of my favorite units as we teach kids about the first church (Acts 2:42-47), and give them space to explore how they are part of the church today. i LOVE telling children that the beauty of the church is that we're better together, when we pray, serve, worship, amazing things happen for the good of God’s kingdom. 

in grades 1-3, we led an activity that is one of my most favorite. after learning about the first church, kids have opportunity in small group to consider who is part of the church and who is missing from the church. this is a constant question we're asking ourselves across the church -- who have we unintentionally left out due to socioeconomic status, ethnicity, age, gender. we hope that this creates a category in kids' brains to continually ask these questions throughout their lives. 

if you're interested to learn more, see small group lesson below for details. also, happy to chat further via email anytime {}.
