The Good News Feed Devotional Challenge ​​​​​​
November 16-22

 
The Good News Feed is designed to develop the spiritual habit of spending time with others. So before you get locked in thinking this is another "assignment," rest assured –it's not. The main goal is for you to be present in real ways with your kids, and have authentic conversations with them about ways to grow as a group. There’s also a little incentive! If you complete each of the share challenges coinciding with the unique challenges, you will be entered in a chance to win a Nintendo Switch! Check out the devotional below and get ready to start on November 16!
