Hide It In Your Heart Summer Scripture Challenge

Summer Hide It in Your Heart Challenge

Have you ever hidden something important and then forgotten where you put it?    I have—and it is so frustrating!  But if we hide something in our hearts we will never lose it—it will become part of who we are and how we think and live.  That’s the idea behind this summer’s memory challenge:  hide God’s Word in your heart and you will always have it with you.

We have selected eight Bible verses for this summer’s challenge.  The challenge for kids in grades 2-5 is to memorize all eight verses!  The challenge for younger children is to memorize three of the verses.  -Please learn the name of the book (Romans, Psalms, etc.), the chapter and verse, too.

After you memorize a verse, get a parent to take a video of you saying the verse (with the book, chapter, and verse)—then send it to Amy!   We will put together a montage of our memory verses to share with the congregation.
