Unwrapping the Servant
Teaching Kids to Serve Jesus and Others
by Tina Houser
Parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, and children's ministry workers are guilty of creating a world that makes kids think it's all about them.
We eat in restaurants that the kids choose. We go on vacations where they want to go. All our free time is spent around the sports and activities that the kids are involved in. It's no surprise that when kids are asked to name the needs they have noticed in their little world, they can't answer! Why is that? It's because they don't see them. Their eyes are focused inward, not outward. That needs to change!
As you work on the many projects described in this book, you and your kids will have a blast serving others. Also included is an outline of an incredibly effective, six-week program where you dive into the topic of serving others with kids as young as preschool.
Through these experiences, your kids' lives will be changed as God
unwraps the servant's heart that is waiting to be unleashed in each person.
