Due to the restrictions that have been put in place for COVID-19, our SUPA Clubs and ISCF School lunchtime groups have been unable to meet and explore God’s Word together. This has, however, provided a space for us to explore different ways of assisting children, young people and families to meet with God daily through Bible reading and prayer. Adam Smyth reports:

SUPA TV launches
One of these new ventures has been SUPA TV which is a fun, interactive online series for primary-aged children and their families to connect with God through games, songs and Bible stories. Series one contains four episodes exploring ‘God’s big plans for little people’ in the Bible, and how He has big plans for little people today too! Check it out at: sunsw.org.au/supa-tv.
YouVersion reaches 40K
We’ve also been so excited to see God using our Bible resources in extraordinary ways! Partnering with YouVersion, many of our most loved Bible engagement resources can now be accessed on the YouVersion app and website!
In the short time they have been available, we have already seen over 40K subscriptions! At a time when meeting together has been difficult, this has been a huge blessing!
It is remarkable how God has used these resources and this online platform to reach primary and high school ages, as well as adults, not just in NSW or throughout Australia but also in over 100 countries around the globe.
The SUPA Son of God Tract drawing competition is currently underway for our upcoming SUPA tract about Jesus. Winners will have their drawings included! Also, keep an eye out for our new devotional for adults, called Sharing God, on YouVersion as well as a primary-aged version of our very popular CHAT-A-BOX topic card series and, coming soon, a new video resource for teens, exploring the Book of Luke!
Throughout all of this, I am reminded that God never leaves us, and He never forsakes us (Hebrews 13:5). He is close to us in this time, as He is in all others. His word is powerful, and we can trust Him to continue to touch hearts whatever the circumstances may be, as we joyfully proclaim the Good News of Jesus. What a great God we serve!
You can find information on all our resources at: sunsw.org.au/resources.
The SUPA Son of God Tract drawing competition is open to children in NSW under the age of 13. Submit your entry now!
