Today in church....

Today in children's church the kids will be studying the "Prodigal Son." Since this is a very "churched" crowd.... I'll be focusing on...
all of us need forgiveness...even if you think you don't need it.
God is like the long suffering father....he continues to love BOTH sons as they dishonor him.
God's love is determined to see the lost return to him.

They're doing a little skit so hopefully they won't get distracted while we do it.
I'm sorry but I just don't think Children's church should be where they sit down for 45 minutes...
if that's the case...
they could just stay in church!

I know some of you don't believe in Children's church...but anything that brings the message of the God and the gospel to children where they can understand it...

is something good to me.

Blessings.

PRAISE GOD for people like you who do children's church. I know my girl gets way more out of it than she would sitting in the regular church zoning out completely.

I praise the LORD for children's church which I grew up calling Sunday School.

I am sure the children were blessed today.

Children's church and Sunday School are two seperate things--Sunday School is before the service and there's a class for every age group, from babies to senior citizens. Children's church is during the service, and only goes up through 3rd grade; the rest of the kids are in the service. We are blessed with great teachers in both areas!

I didn't believe in children's Church. Until I had children that were that age.

Now I'm a firm believer in it. ;)

I like children's church....I like when I go get my boys and they have big smiles(it doesn't happen every time) Usually, the days where they got to jump up and down and worship and laugh...those are big smile days!
