I am totally honored to partner with Tyndale House and Adventures in Odyssey to present to you a FUN family project for this Summer! Make this a Summer that you and your family will remember for a lifetime…while making young disciples for Christ!
A.C.T.S. – A Call To Serve
One of the most important things we can do for our kids is to teach them to serve and honor others. To serve their families, to serve their communities, to serve their world.
To kick off this awesome project you can download ideas for projects here and you can also listen to the first episode of the Adventures In Odyssey Service episode, available here!
How the A.C.T.S. (A Call to Service) challenge and contest works:
Kids who join A.C.T.S. can pick up a service log and collect fun character stickers for hours served at participating bookstores throughout the summer, or download a serving log online at whitsend.org. At the end of the summer, kids can record and upload a short video telling how they serve and why they’d like to become an Adventures in Odyssey Ambassador.
A hundred winners will get the brand new AIO Album, and after online voting, two grand prize winners (one boy and one girl) will get to travel on an exciting Good-Goers Mission Based Adventure trip to another country with a parent!
The out-of-country destination will be announced on a live podcast May 22—hosted by AIO actors Katie Leigh (Connie) and Chris Anthony (Chris)—which you can watch at whitsend.org/acts.
You don’t want to miss it!
So why do we need to teach them to serve?
Kids….Um and adults alike are selfish creatures for sure. Just like how we teach our kids to take pride in being a part of our family in serving and honoring one another..we need to teach them to reach outside of their homes too.
In a very real way, the best path toward building selfless, confident children is to help and encourage them toward a growing and thriving faith in God. And that includes obedience to what God teaches—not because it makes kids feel good, although it often does—but because they’re following God’s instructions to love Him and serve others. That builds a faith they can count on and carry with them into adulthood—which is the greatest gift any parent can bestow on their child.
Join Adventures in Odyssey this summer to discover how fun it can be to serve others!
Adventures in Odyssey, the beloved audio series from Focus on the Family, has encouraged kids toward a stronger faith for 25 years. Whit, Connie, Eugene, and the other loveable characters from Odyssey have shared countless adventures with kids across the world in the classic audio dramas, books, videos, and devotionals, fulfilling the AIO promise to help kids discover, imagine, and grow.
This summer, Adventures in Odyssey is joining with Christian bookstores across the country, inviting kids to participate in a Summer of Service. They’re promoting the biblical message, “When you serve, everybody wins,” encouraging kids to serve their families, their communities, and their world. Whether it’s baking cookies for an elderly neighbor or putting together a care package for missionaries overseas, kids will discover that serving can be a blast!
Even if you just do SOME of the service projects it will be totally worthwhile!
AND Stay tuned for LOTS more FUN to come!!
