As our church prepares to embark and engage in an Awana ministry geared to teaching children to know, love and serve Christ, I wanted to remind those who will be on the front lines of this outreach that they are participating in the sovereign plan of God to raise up those who will be the next generation of faith-defenders. What an awesome privilege and responsibility.
I love the following quote by Charles Spurgeon who wrote:
“You may speak but a word to a child, and in that child there may be slumbering a noble heart which shall stir the Christian Church in years to come.”
p.s. Awana training is this Saturday, August 24, 9 am to 4 pm at the 2300 S. 13th Street building (lunch to be provided). Our Awana program begins on Sunday Evening, September 8, 6 pm.
