This term in Kids Club we are starting a brand new series called ‘Horrible Hero Histories.’
Horrible Histories is huge and our kids are always talking about the show because of that we wanted to bring in this theme and link it with some of the amazing but sometimes horrible stories from the bible.
The Old Testament is FULL of so many stories which are just crazy, gross and so confusing. This series is all about telling these stories.
Every story that we are looking at for the next 5 weeks has a very clear unexpected Hero in them. Its these Heroes we are going to be talking about.
Carry on reading to find out who we are talking about.
Wk 1: Samson.
Samson made a lot of mistakes. He messed up, told secrets to the wrong people and got his self into some big trouble but God used him in a way you would not expect.
Big Answer: God can use my mistakes.
Wk 2: Ehud
The story of Ehud and the king is insane if you know it. Ehud was able to help the land and the people by getting rid of the mean King. Ehud was left handing was because of that was able to trick people and get to the king.
Big Answer: God can use my differences
Wk 3: Deborah
Deborah was a Judge who rose up and led an army when no one else would. She was not the expected person. Sometimes we can think I can’t do that, but with God we can do anything.
Big Answer: God can use who I am
Wk 4: Moses
Moses has a crazy life, he was put in a basket in the river, taken into the palace, he hurt a man and then ran away to the desert. There God spoke to him in a burning bush. Moses saw all the 10 plagues in action. What a life. One thing we don’t always know about Moses is that he struggled to speak but again God still used him.
Big Answer: God can use my inabilities
Jesus is the ultimate unexpected Hero. For such a long time people were waiting for the chosen one. They had been waiting for the one who would come and change everything and be there saviour. So when Jesus was born in a stable surrounded by animals and all that comes from a stable he was not what people expected. But God used that tiny baby to change the world.
Big Answer: God can use me
We are so excited for this series. It is going to be so good.
