This month in Kids Connect we’re going to Get Messy as we explore the life application:  Peace.  Peace is part of God’s character.  And He wants us to reflect peace in our relationships with others.  Peace is proving you care more about each other than about winning an argument.

Peace is more than just “not fighting” and saying the right things to keep people happy. Peace is living in a way that shows you care more about others than about being right. It’s about building strong relationships through mutual trust.

Our memory verse this month is:  So let us do all we can to live in peace and let us work hard to build each other up, Romans 14:19, NIrV.  That is exactly what God did for us when He sent Jesus to make peace with us.  Peace cost Him something great, but out of His love for us, He gave His all.

When our relationships are broken, we often find ourselves avoiding other people.  We know that we need to work at this relationship, but it’s easier to ignore what’s going on and sweep it under the rug.  Working at relationships is messy.  It will cost us something. It will take time.  But peace is worth the effort.

Our KC Challenge for the month of both February and March is to bring a friend to Kids Connect!  There will be a prize for both you and your friend!
