Join us every Sunday in September as we launch into TREK: An Adventure in Trust.
GOD VIEW: THE CONNECTION BETWEEN TRUST AND GOD’S CHARACTER, AS SHOWN THROUGH GOD’S BIG STORY. TRUST IS PUTTING YOUR CONFIDENCE IN SOMEONE YOU CAN DEPEND ON.
WEEK FIVE: In Genesis 42-45 we conclude Joseph’s story. Now second in command in Egypt, Joseph put his plan into action as the famine has spread far and wide. Joseph’s brothers end up making the trek down to Egypt, and sure enough they ended up right in front of Joseph. After some back and forth for several weeks, Joseph can’t stand it any longer. He revealed who he was to his brothers and offered them forgiveness for everything that had happened.
BOTTOM LINE: You can trust God has a plan. It’s often hard to see how God is working in a certain situation while you’re going through it. As we get older, we see that story that God was writing with our life. Kids are just starting this journey of faith, we pray that they’ll discover that God has a plan and will trust them as they learn what that is.

This Sunday we read 1 Timothy 6:6-19 and learned about money and spiritual gifts and how God wants us to use them in His kingdom. We looked at topics like using our money wisely, giving to the Lord’s work, and using our spiritual gifts for good when God blesses us with them. Sometimes we don’t like to stop and think about money, we just like to spend it. But when used in the right way, money can be a very effective tool in the kingdom of God.
The Lord wants us to learn to be content with what we have. Sometimes it is hard to know what a “need” is and what a “want” is. God says He will always supply our needs, but that doesn’t mean we will always get our wants. We need to be content with what God supplies.
When we look at what other people have and desire those things for ourselves, that is coveting. We don’t always need the latest greatest things with all the bells and whistles. There’s not anything wrong with having toys and things, but we need to be careful to listen to the Lord when it comes to our money.
