Everywhere Jesus walked, people were changed. Over and over the gospels reveal a flesh wearing God who wasn’t preoccupied by where He was going but was fully present to the people He encountered along the way.

In this series, kids will encounter a Jesus who is fully love yet unfathomably powerful. They will encounter a Jesus whose words command nature to obey and whose compassion for the hungry crowds compels Him to do the impossible—a Jesus who heals a blind man and a sick woman, commands a girl who has died to get up, and strolls across storm-tossed waters.

Kids will encounter a miracle-working Jesus who sees them, loves them, and will stop at nothing to be with them.

Series Invitation

A few years ago, my daughter went blind. Overnight, her world grew dim, and everything became shapeless shadows in dim pastels interrupted by black dots.

We prayed for a miracle. We asked friends and family to storm Heaven with petitions on behalf of our child. Yet months went by with no improvements.

How do you define miracle? Have you ever witnessed one? Have you received one? As we prayed for my daughter, I realized that I defined a miracle as the end of a story—like “happily ever after.”

But what if a miracle is just the beginning? What if it doesn’t look like what we think or hope it will? Our God is beyond understanding. His ways are higher than our ways.

Kids will encounter a miracle-working Jesus who sees them, loves them, and will stop at nothing to be with them.

A year later, a doctor declared that my daughter would be healed. Within the month, she experienced fully restored sight! Her healing was not the miracle I experienced though. Mine was found in my ability (or lack thereof) to believe in the possibility of healing.

While looking at miracles in Scripture, I invite you to wrestle with how those miracles sit in the middle of the stories.

  • What do you wonder about because of the miracle?
  • What shifted in the story that was not the miracle itself?
  • Do you believe in miracles for today, for us, for His church?

How great our God is, beyond our understanding but not beyond our reach.
