October on the Rooftop – Week 3
Categories: Crosstown Kids
Individuality is discovering who you are meant to be so you can make a difference. Our memory verse is 1 Timothy 4:12a, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and how you live.”
Last week Paul explained to the church at Corinth that we are all parts of one body. We each have unique gifts and a unique story that help us to answer God’s call together. If we partner with other Christians, God can use our collaborative gifts and stories for a bigger impact on the world.
Bottom Line: When we use our gifts together; we can make a greater difference.
You are encouraged to complete the GodTime cards this month with your kids. We have some amazingly gifted kids in our program; let’s empower them to live out their faith right now, while they are young!
Click on the GodTime Card link above for 4 days of short devotions and activities that will allow you to experience this week’s lesson as a family!
October Mission Project: For one more week, we are collecting school supplies for the kids who will be served during our Thanksgiving week mission trip to Honduras. Send school supplies in with your child who can drop them in the bin when coming to the Rooftop for worship.

From Rachel Macy Stafford, author of Hands Free Life, “ I told my inner drill sergeant perfection was not required on this journey. God nudged me when to let my children help prepare the meal … when to stay a few more minutes at the dinner table … when to stop hurrying and let my child set the pace. God showed me that accomplishing tasks perfectly and efficiently is less important than being present and connected to the people I love.”
Enjoy this week with your families.
