The last few Sundays I’ve heard (and been able to see a bit for myself) how much the 1st-5th graders are connecting with what God has to say in the Bible. The awesome leaders we have in the room prepare and pray for these kids every week. It’s amazing to see the kids sharing real life fears and learning to give them to God. The Sunday before last we had kids writing down fears like their parents’ relationships or fear of dying in a fire. Real fears that only God can help with.
Yesterday they talked about sharing the story of Jesus with others. One of our volunteers shared with me how every week the lessons that he’s sharing with the kids deal directly with his personal life as well as seem to parallel what they’re studying in their small group. How big and awesome is our God! God uses these lessons to touch and speak to kids of all ages =)
