Did you know that the kids of today are going to be our future leaders? That’s right. Your son or daughter could be the next Donald Trump. He or she could be the next president to lead a colossal nation. That is why it is important to raise godly leaders and one way to do that is to bring them to a kids’ church.
Now, parents, you have to understand that you are the primary teachers of your children. What you teach them at home will reflect at how they behave outside. It’s also in the four corners of your home that they will first get to know Jesus. Thus, remember that kids’ church can never replace your discipline and teachings to them.
Kids’ church is also called as Sunday School. However a religious organization calls it, the common thing is that it’s a ministry for the kids. It’s where the children of varying ages can learn more about the Lord. It’s also an avenue where they can grow in their relationship with the Lord through fun Bible lessons and activities.
But the thing is that children’s ministry is not a daycare center or babysitting where parents can leave their kids to volunteer teachers so that they can peacefully attend the service. There is more to that and here are three reasons why you should definitely bring your children to kids’ church.
- It’s their best chance to accept Christ. Research has proven that kids tend to be more open to the Gospel than any other age group. You will want your children to have every opportunity to believe in Jesus.
- It can help counter balance worldly influences. It cannot be denied that the world today has its own principles and beliefs now that are against the Word of God. Your children need to know the truth according to the Bible. They also need positive influences.
- It’s where they can learn to honor God and make disciples. Whether they are still five years old or thirteen years old, the goal of children’s ministry is to teach them to become fishers of men. They grow up sharing the love of God wherever they go.
Now moms and dads, imagine this. What if Donald Trump went to kids’ church? Wouldn’t it be a big difference?
