"In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love." - Mother Theresa
Yesterday we kicked off our church's first ever children's church - Treasured Tikes (2-5 yr olds) and His Kids (1st-6th grades.) Paul helped me organize the whole shabang and get it off the ground and running. Here were a few of my favorite moments from the morning:
Seeing Heather (one of our college students) in 3 inch heels toting 4 kids (not her own) with her. (She's the woman.)
Watching kids jump around the registration table because they couldn't contain their anticipation.
Alex running out of Treasured Tikes with his paper bag puppet repeating, "Love is not (r)ude."
Abigail hesitating to leave after hesitating to come.
Disciplining Zac in love and having him respond well.
LeeAnn's after church stories of her horse riding tumbles.
If any of you have any suggestions concerning children's church, we would gladly take them. Please pray with us that this ministry would reach out to the community, strengthen families, and draw kids to God . Thanks!
