Kids and Student Quarantine Challenge

This is just a list of fun and sometimes challenging ways to help your family pass some time. Take pictures along the way and share them on social media and hashtag #livingfearless2020 so as a family of churches, we can all see what each other are up to during this time. See below for more info!

Youth Group

We will be doing Youth Group on Zoom at 7PM on Sundays during this time. This allows us to interact together on the call, have live teaching, and continue to break out into small groups to continue to dive further into the teaching. Follow us on Instagram @ignite_thirdcoast for more details and how to sign into the Meeting.

"Jesus is Alive!" Kids coloring book and devotional

We encourage parents to read the first few pages of the devotional. It gives great resources. Next on the table of contents, you will notice that while stories can be looked up in a regular Bible, they do follow along with the Jesus Storybook Bible (JSB). If you have this children’s Bible we would highly suggest using it. Some stories even correlate to the Bible App for Kids (a free download). Books are available at Pine Trail Camp in front of the Chapel.

"Together" Student Devotional

Together is a daily devotional you can use through Easter. This workbook provides daily scripture reading and prompts to help continue your growth. If you would like this devotional, email Zach to get a copy.

Quarantine Challenge

Use one card a week and complete as many activities as you can. This is just a list of fun and sometimes challenging ways to help your family pass some time. Take pictures along the way and share them on social media and hashtag #livingfearless2020 so as a family of churches, we can all see what each other are up to during this time.

Weekly Bible Memory Verses

These Bible verses are here for you to memorize with your family. God’s Word is full of wonderful promises and commands that provide comfort in this uncertain time in our history. We recommend memorizing one verse a week as a way to constantly be reminded of what God is saying to you.
