This series is meant to teach the kids that even during tough stuff that God has a good plan for us. We are kicking off a series called Tough Stuff - that’s anything that might feel scary, difficult, or hard. We all know a little about that because we all go through some tough stuff in life. We are going to take a look at some people in the Bible who went through tough stuff, too.
In this series we’re going to meet two friends Matt and Abby are going head-to-head and playing games against each other in a show called Versus. Let’s see who will win and who will lose?
