I’m always amazed at how my kids eat up media content during a lesson. Whether it’s a retelling of the Bible story or a fun application video, something about seeing the point of the lesson in another way really helps kids connect.
The videos in the Zip For Kids: Media are intended to do just that. We want to see your kids connect with who God is in as many ways as possible. The videos complement the material teachers will be teaching in small groups and large. Or a teacher can use the Bible story video to tell the story, then follow it up with group activities.
As kids hear the truth from multiple sources, our hope is that they will connect with it in new ways.
That’s why I’m excited to say that today we’re giving away a Zip For Kids: Media package! Zip For Kids: Media retails for $50, so I’m really excited to give one away! Enter below and tell us how you would use Zip For Kids: Media if you win! The contest will be open until next Wednesday, May 29, and we’ll announce the winner on Thursday, May 30! Enjoy!
