Using July in Groups

Though Pockets is primarily a resource for children’s personal use, the magazine can be used in groups as supplemental Sunday-school material or with weeknight groups or Pockets clubs. Here are suggestions for using the July issue, on the theme of summer fun, in weekly segments.

 

Week One:

Read: It’s Not Fair (pages 2-4)

Discuss: Have you ever had your plans change in a really disappointing way? What happened? How did you respond? Were you able to find something positive in the situation?

Pray: For people who are sick or injured

Do: Read about the contest on page 24 and work on your entries.
