South Jeff Family,
April was a month of awe as I got to watch what God is doing, I want to thank all volunteers for their faithful labor, sharing the Gospel with the kids that enter our doors. Thank you for opening yourselves to be used for something bigger than them.
As I sat up front leading worship, I looked out as every child was singing and doing the motions. Then something caught my eye. In the front row, there sat Jordan. Eyes closed and engaged in worship, I realized that God is moving. He is working in their lives, and I feel so blessed to get to watch as He does what He does best, making broken hearts whole.
This month has brought to the light how important prayer is to children’s ministry. My favorite small group time is when we talk about our “joy, junk, and Jesus”. While sometimes I get that their joy is coming to church, their junk is not coming to church, and their Jesus is that they get to come to church, sometimes students really share hurts and praises. Each and every child has a life outside of our walls that is filled with things that make them happy, things that make them sad, and evidences of God’s presence. And once again, during that time I just get to listen and marvel as the Holy Spirit grows and shapes our students for His glory.
I also want to ask for continued prayer for children’s ministry. We are currently in the process of finding a date to reschedule the elementary lock in, and working on setting dates for all summer activities. Please pray for wisdom, and that we will be faithful in sharing the message with which we have been entrusted.
