Ark Kids Elementary: Go
Matthew 28:19 (NIV) says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” This verse is known widely as the Great Commission. Jesus issued this challenge moments before departing earth for Heaven. He wanted the Church to know without a doubt that it’s our job to reach the lost. Missions matter to God. That’s what this series is all about. We want the kids to understand and know that it’s our job to go out into the world and share the love of Jesus. This mission may take them anywhere from next door to across the globe. Kids will travel with Paul and Barnabas through their first missionary journey and see firsthand the challenges and blessings that missionaries experience. It’s a great way to introduce the concept of missions to the next generation.
