Kids - Strong
Joshua Leads Israel Over the Jordan River - Week 2
September 12-13, 2020 |
This four-part series explores how God’s people were strong and courageous – not from their own strength but God’s. They came into the Promised Land, believing he would be with them. God makes the same promise to be with us, too, which gives us the courage we need to be strong.

For today, head on outside and find a rock. With your family's permission, take that rock and bring it indoors for decorating. This stone, just like the stones in our story, is a reminder that God is strong and he is always with us. So color the rock, write "Strong" or "Joshua 1:9" on it and make it look amazing. Then place it somewhere in your house to remember God's strength.
