This Week in Village Kids - June Week 2
When we put our trust in Jesus, we receive an amazing gift: the Holy Spirit. It helps us raise our game and live the way God wants us to live. With the Spirit, we can use what God is doing in us to change the world. This summer, we are learning all about the Fruits of the Spirit. This week, we talked about Joy!
Bottom Line: You can choose joy no matter what's going on.
Key Question: How can you choose joy even when you're not happy?
