As Fall is ending and the Winter Quarter is approaching, I wanted to encourage you and give you fresh insight into why we do what we do!
I will be sending you a blog for the next 6 weeks that will:
*remind you why we do what we do, week in and week out.
There are times we get frustrated with no control in our rooms, or we can sometimes get annoyed by some of the kids (should we not say this, even though it is true?). Or maybe we wonder if what we are teaching is really sinking in and truly making an impact with the kids!
These blogs will remind you of what will help make a great impact in the souls of the young ones here at Grace Church. We will be focusing on a concept that is Leading Small. This means that we need to focus on a small group of kids.
If you are a teacher or assistant teacher , you should average 10 kids or less per leader in the room. If you are a small group leader on Wed nights or Sunday for Chapel, the number of kids per adult should be 7. So, we can all lead small! You may think this is a great idea, but you are really wondering how in the world we can do this.
My hope is that the next 6 weeks:
*gives you new ideas
*reminds you of concepts that work
*allows all of us to praise God for the privilege of serving the kids!
Remember, kids will decide (try and figure out) what they believe about God up to the age of 12. After age 12, they will begin to defend what they believe about God. We have an awesome opportunity to help kids be in the path of Jesus in order to have a personal relationship with the Creator of all things!
In Jesus’ Name,
Ezekiel 22:30 “I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.” (NLT)
