Getting the Most Out of Your Market

Jessi Borchardt - Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Tracker Tickets and Discover Market are tools to encourage kids to attend Discovery Land, bring their Bibles, fully participate, and work with their parents on Tracker's Treasures at home. These are important outcomes, but they are just the start of how these tools can help kids grow in their faith.

As an example, these 4th graders at Appleton Alliance were given an opportunity to donate a portion of their tracker tickets each week. They saved over 900 tickets!. Last week, they traded them in for two backpacks filled with gifts, which were then donated to kids in need at The Harbor House, a local shelter for women and children hurt by domestic abuse. The students also signed a greeting card and prayed for the future recipients of the gifts--that they will seek Jesus in their time of need.

How can you more fully utilize Tracker Tickets and Discover Market as discipleship tools? Can you send gifts to kids of missionary families that are supported by your church? Can you do a "giving day" where the only things purchased at the Market are gifts for others?

Everything -- including Tracker Tickets-- belongs to the Lord. Encourage your kids to be wise stewards of what God has given them by thinking of others and giving generously.
