Kids of Courage Get Prepared
In VOM’s Kids of Courage VBS curriculum kids learn that Kids of Courage: Trust God, Get Prepared, Forgive Others, Witness Boldly, and Remember Persecuted Christians. They learn that they, too, can be Kids of Courage.
Read below what the curriculum says about Getting Prepared.
In the Bible, God says that those who follow his Son Jesus will have trouble sometimes. Kids of Courage trust God to help them in hard times. Kids of Courage get prepared so they will be ready when hard times come.
One way to get prepared is to pray every day. If you have a habit of praying about what’s going on in your life, prayer will come naturally to you in times of trouble. Another way to get prepared is to read the Bible to find out what men and women of God do when they have problems. You can also read stories about missionaries and others who follow God even when life is difficult.
Kids of Courage can get prepared by memorizing Bible verses. Many Christians are comforted by reciting verses when they are sick, lonely, can’t sleep at night, or are even when they are in prison. I Corinthians 16:13 is a verse that encourages people to stay strong in their faith. Learn a song about the verse here.
