Beginning Sept. 20/21, kids in Segullah are
going to travel around the world to discover
orphaned kids who need God's love - they
may feel forgotten, but God doesn't forget
about them! Our Bible verse Hebrews 13:5&6
says “God has said, Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.' So we say with
confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not
be afraid.” Our series goes along with the
book "Tales of the Not Forgotten" by Beth
Guckenberger. To find out more about this
book & ministry, visit http://back2back.org/.
Parent Resources
As your child learns about missions in the
"Tales of the Not Forgotten" series, you will
have access to the Kidz Kan for Families
resource which will give your kids a heart for
the world while making Jesus real in the midst
of everyday life. Throughout this series, we
will be sending home a snippet from KidZ KaN
each week. The full resource is available for
$23 a year. At the end of the series we will be
having a drawing to give 5 different families a
subscription to KidZ KaN! For more
information visit www.kidzkan.org.
