Let the children come...

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Matthew 19:14

Children are instrumental to the growth of a church.  I don't believe that anyone would deny this statement.  Without young people in a church, the future is very dim to say the least.  Of course, the same could be said for our world, but let's stick to church for just a moment.  This past Sunday morning, we had an average attendance during worship service. However, I want to let you know that if you missed worship, you missed a blessing...you missed the gathering of some precious young souls coming forward during children's time.  We talked about the importance of "interdependence" (big word that maybe only a few caught).  However, we practiced coming forward and learned that children's church would be starting up next week.  The kids seemed excited...probably because they don't have to listen to me, but excited none the less.  The will have the opportunity to worship with us for a while, have a moment with me, then have some activities with some dedicated adults in our church family.  

Jesus told the disciples to let the children come, the kingdom belongs to such as these.  Let the children come to worship, come to learn, come to participate. This is their church as well.  They need to learn just like us that our God is great; that our God is worthy of praise!  Let's make this opportunity for the children a positive experience so that church will be somewhere they are comfortable and somewhere they want to come.

Thank you to those adults that have volunteered and those that will in the future...God bless each one of you!

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
