SuperStart!

Power up theme

What does "Power Up!" mean?

Luke 11:28, “But (Jesus) said, ‘Blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!’”

Imagine your favorite video game. You’re at the moment where everything hangs in the balance. One wrong move and your player could die, but if you play the game just right you’ll make it to the next level and eventually win the game. It’s the perfect time for a "Power Up" – that critical gift or ability that you didn't have before, but it helped you advance and win.

In the game of life, however, for a preteen it can often seem like the odds are stacked against them. But God tells us that’s not true. He tells us that He’s on our side, and He gives us a tool, a “Power Up” to help us through life.

That “Power Up” is His Word. By exploring Luke 11:28 and plugging into the world of video games, SuperStart's mission this year is to help preteens understand that through God's Word they receive the power they need to navigate and serve in His Kingdom.
