Philippians 4:6-9
Ice Cream Challenge

the challenge

Every year we challenge kids to learn a passage of scripture and hide it in their hearts. This year we're challenging our kids to learn Philippians 4:6-9 from the NIV.  

Also we're adding a preschool division by asking them to memorize Philippians 4:6-7

Your kids will love learning and the best part is that every kid who says the verse will get invited to an ice cream party at California Yogurt Kraze!  

Read on for rules and FAQ.

Philippians 4:6-9

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
