THEY ARE AWESOME!! That's the announcement.
Not that I want to say anything bad about any other church's Children's Ministry, but I think ours is the best. Granted, I'm biased, but I have my reasons.
- I know the staff and volunteers. I know how much they want to help our kids learn to love Jesus and have a relationship with Him.
- I've seen the results. Personally. In the lives of my three kids.
- I've heard stories from parents about the impact it's having on their kids. One exmaple is this picture I got from a parent today. This is from one of our 8 year olds sharing his "best wish"...that Jesus would never leave his heart.
There's a lot more that I could share, but that's the gist. Wow!
There is one more reason I am telling you this. If you don't normally put your kids in children's ministry during services, this would be a great weekend to do it. I'll be teaching on Marriage. And while I won't cover anything inappropriate, some of the topics associated with Marriage could spur an elementary aged student to ask some questions you may rather wait a few years to answer.
