Just wanted to give all those that work with kids a quick encouragement… What you do is so vital to the Church, but more importantly it can mean eternal life or death for those you are investing in. With every Bible lesson, worship time, and VBS you are building up a child to eternal life.
Unfortunately, the attitude in some churches toward Children’s Ministry is one of apathy and neglect. However, the truth of the matter is that you are laying the foundation for life-long discipleship.
Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation—if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:2-5
Brick upon brick… you are building up a new generation that will glorify the Lord… a generation that will experience true life in the midst of a broken world.
Hang in there! Keep building!
