October on the Rooftop – Week 2

Categories: Crosstown Kids


October on the Rooftop – Week 1

Sunday on the Rooftop, we traveled with the 12 spies in Numbers 13-14 to the Promised Land to scope out the new digs for the Israelites.  Only 2 spies, Joshua and Caleb trusted God when faced with obstacles.  Courage is being brave enough to do what you should do, even when you’re afraid.  Joshua and Caleb were the only 2 to speak up and say that although the inhabitants of the land were strong and powerful, God would provide a way to conquer the land for God’s people. Our bottom line:  You can do what you should even when others are afraid!  Because of their faithfulness, Joshua and Caleb were the only men of their generation to see the land God promised to Abraham.
Our memory verse this month is Joshua 1:9, “Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
