Catching Up

Looking back on our website, I realize that I am WAY behind in posting anything.  So, it’s time to play catch up.  We started our kids club again in the autumn, and it’s continuing to go very well.  We’re reaching new kids and have several parents who stay for the entire thing as well.  We’ve now have the kids club two Saturdays a month and are still praying about the next step for this outreach.

Circus theme for the kids club

The autumn theme was a circus.

We're very glad that some parents stay, and we put them to help with the craft time.

We’ve had a nice winter, but we’re all ready to put away our winter jackets.  As nice as it is, we’re looking longingly at our summer clothes.

Even though we complain about it being colder here, the snow that we got was absolutely beautiful!

We are still overseeing the children’s ministry (birth – age 18) at our church.  Once a month, we run Zuper Zondag, a service for the children 4 – 10.  We use our youth group to help, and they are amazing!  Many of these youth were in our children’s church, and they really enjoy coming in to help (and see the puppets again).

At this Zuper Zondag, the kids were painting bread (with milk and food coloring).

We have started a new season of our kids club again.  This time, our theme is building.  We are looking at people in the Bible who built different things (Noah, Moses, etc).  In a few months, we are looking forward to having an Easter service with the kids and hosting an egg hunt and party for them.  Who knows the lives that can be changed!  In this “christian” nation, many of these children are hearing for the first time the gospel and anything at all about God.  I had a child try to argue with me that Christmas wasn’t about Jesus being born because he had never heard that.  Please be praying for a good Easter turnout and a clear message for these kids and their parents.

This is from our most recent kids club.  The kids were learning that God's love can't be measured or weighed.  It's too great!
