I have a Big Dream and I’d love it if you’d dream with me….
Wouldn’t it be great if every preschooler who is connected to your church got excited about Bible stories because they had their very own story bible? Not just every kid in Sunday School. Not just every kid in worship. Not just every kid who attends your VBS. Every kid.
Certainly, the kids in Sunday School, worship and VBS.
But, also the kids in your congregation’s preschool.
The kids who are tutored by members of your congregation.
The kids who were baptized in your congregation but whom you haven’t seen since that lovely worship service.
The kids whose parents are taking ESL classes at night in your fellowship hall.
The kids whose parents stop by your food pantry on Saturday morning to pick up essentials they simply can’t afford to purchase.
The kids whose names go on your Christmas angel tree.
Every. Single. Kid.
How many preschoolers are somehow connected to your church…maybe not as members, but as children of God? What would it take to gift them with their very own story bible? And, what would the impact be in their lives and the lives of their families? How long might that impact last? A lifetime perhaps.
I’ll leave the counting of how many preschoolers are connected to your congregation to you….
And, you’ll have to get some energetic folks to figure out how to organize this exciting project. But, just think of the energy it could bring to your congregation as people Dream Big with us!
It will take leadership, time, and yes some money. But, we’re going to help with that last bit with the biggest kids’ bible sale we’ve ever had!
From now until March 15th, Sparkhouse Family is running a special promotion on the new Family Edition of The Spark Story Bible. During this sale, your church can save up to 55% when you purchase 10 or more Bibles. And, with this offer, you’ll receive free shipping! See, I told you it was a great sale!
The award-winning Family Edition is different from our Spark Story Bible for Sunday School. It is lightweight, durable, and perfect for busy little hands to explore during worship services and for kids to read at home. The Family Edition is not designed to be used with our Spark Sunday school curriculum, but is ideal for giving to young families to read aloud together and it will fit perfectly in pew racks.
So, how big can we dream? Will your women’s ministry groups help fund this effort? How about bequests left to your congregation that are sitting in a bank account? Are there a few members with the financial means and passion for sharing the Gospel who would help fund this? Or, some combination of fundraising efforts like these?
Your congregation can purchase 10+ copies of The Spark Story Bible, Family Edition, at wearesparkhouse.org and apply the promo code SPARK16 at checkout to take advantage of this incredible sliding scale sale price and free shipping.
But, dream fast! This special offer is only good through March 15, 2016!
And, I’d love to hear just how your big dreams were realized! Please email your “Big Dream” story and photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can share them here! Thanks for dreaming with me!
