Challenges!

Sunday, May 2 | Grace Notes Challenge!
Today’s discussion was about God’s grace which is freely given to each one of us through His son, Jesus Christ. Each youth who attended made a container to hold “grace notes,” which are little slips of paper, each one with a different gift from God written on it. Youth were encouraged to fill the container with as many grace notes as possible and to re-visit it when they needed to be reminded of how many gifts God has given them. The Challenge! was to keep the love moving by sending a grace note to someone else telling them what you appreciate about them. After all, they are a gift from God too!

Create a Comic Challenge!
This fun Challenge continues until we are back in person to give everyone a chance to have a creation displayed in the Club 56 den. Click here for Challenge description and rules, then email your completed comic to kidzchurch@stmarkscarmel.org. You can view completed comics here!
