The Church Chose Us!
four Sundays in May, our Preschool and Children’s Ministry studied the history
of the church.
How the church began
How Peter and John shared Jesus with others
Early church leadership and the purpose of serving in the church and community
as a church
Stephen’s preaching including God’s plan for people to share how to trust Jesus
as their Savior.
this study, we had a rare Sunday in the children’s ministry. The Sunday was
rare, due to the fact, over half of our Sunday School teachers were out, and
not a single scheduled Worship Care volunteer could make it. After receiving
“no’s” on many phone calls, several of us quickly went to Adult Bible Study
classrooms “waving white flags” for help. By the time Worship Care began, we
were flooded with volunteers. So many volunteers, in fact, we did something
unprecedented, we graciously turned people away.
of our kids didn’t have a clue we were short volunteers that Sunday morning,
one little one did though. As she saw so many people walk into her classroom to
help, she grabbed a few crayons and started coloring a picture. As she left
church that morning, she showed me her masterpiece. It was a picture of many
hands, colored in rainbows, hearts, and fun patterns. She held it proudly as
she shared it with me, “Miss Merida! Guess what? You know how we choose the
church? This morning, the CHURCH CHOSE US!” Later that morning, I shared this
at the leadership forum, and I couldn’t stop the tears from streaming down my
face. THANK YOU for choosing our children, our families, and our church family.
Thank you for being the hands and feet of Christ, it was noticed even by our
this Summer kicks off, we have many ways to show our children in our community
we choose them, too. From Vacation Bible School (June 12-16), to American Girl
Camp (June 26-30), to Summer Music at Church (July 10-14) to Preteen Camp (July
17-21)… we need lots of help and volunteers who will invest Christ and
themselves into these precious children who will be attending. Roughly 200
families are signed up to attend our Summer Camps, let’s invest our hearts, our
time, our energy well. Like Christ as chosen us, let’s choose to share Him with
