Summer is a great time to relax and keep the kids busy. Adventures in Odyssey is calling on Kids to reach out and do Service Projects via their program A.C.T.S-A Call to Serve. Service Projects and serving others is something that I have been practicing with my boys since they were very young and we continue to do so. My boys look forward to serving others and doing service projects and it is NEVER too late to instill Acts of Service in your children. Matter of fact, Summer is a GREAT time to work on Service Projects as the kids have more time to do things. My oldest and I will be serving at our church's Vacation Bible School in a couple of weeks. The boys and I like to visit Downtown Chicago and when we do we bring little baggies for the homeless. Each baggie contains a bottle of water, crackers and another snack. We serve year round and we are blessed as much as those we are serving!
Theme: Imagine creative and fun ways to serve using your unique gifts!
Children are spending more and more time in front of TVs, iPads, computers, and video games. That doesn’t leave much room for kids to dream up their own visual images—like the ones that fill their minds when they hear a great story! Rather than passively receiving images, kids actively engage in making images themselves when they hear a good story. Their imaginations are enriched and stimulated, and the material becomes more personal and memorable.
Adventures in Odyssey is all about great stories—and the power of the imagination. The beloved audio dramas are heard on over 700 radio stations, and AIO has recently expanded to books and devotionals—including The Imagination Station series, a fast-growing line of early chapter readers. You can check them out by downloading a FREE e-book of Imagination Station #1: Voyage with the Vikings!
This summer, Adventures in Odyssey encourages kids to write their OWN stories, as they join in ACTS: A Call to Serve! AIO is helping children use their imaginations to serve their family, community, and world this summer—maybe by sending a care package to a missionary or baking cookies for the local fire department. Check out www.whitsend.org/acts for details and a chance to win fabulous prizes, including a mission trip with a parent to Costa Rica!
More important than prizes are the stories your child will tell about the creative ways they served others, and how they grew as a result. And what they come up with really might change the world!
