Childrens’ Ministry (Page 2)

New Beginnings

25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.  26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.  27 And he who searches our hearts knows the…

Volunteers

Have you ever taught a kids class and asked for a volunteer?  It’s amazing to see how many hands go up.  Bodies wiggle, arms strain to reach higher and the sound of “Pick me!” fills the room!  Many children are so anxious to help out, participate and lend a hand.  It’s a spirit that many…

From the Elders

(Luke 18:16) But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God”. Well, February 15, was Tim Yaeger’s final day to serve as our children’s minister. The good news is that Tim, Katie and the whole Yaeger gang are…

The Lord has been at work and everything accomplished is for Him, through Him and because…

Leadership Training for Christ

The 2018 LTC season is off to a great start! We’ve had over 40 turn in registration forms and several new families joining the effort for LTC. I have to confess, that I still need to turn in my 4 forms, but at least we’ve all got a little time until the due date. Speaking…

Fantastic Verses … and How to Memorize Them

On Wednesday nights our 3rd and 4th Graders are taking a journey to find and memorize fantastic verses in the Bible. Placing scripture in memory at an early age is a crucial component of laying a foundation for spiritual growth. Jesus used scripture to fight Satan and our children can do the same. Scripture should…

Christian Evidences for Kids

As we wrap up a quarter of studying Christian Evidences, I wanted to share with you some of what we have been studying in the 5th and 6th grade class. Many who believe in evolution and the “big bang” are doing everything they can to spread this teaching through our schools and published everywhere so…
