Bye Bye 2012
As we prepare to say goodbye to 2012, I wanted to thank those who helped at church with anything the children's dept. has undertaken. We have done a lockin, Easter egg hunt, food fight (which will never happen again), movie nights, inside inflatable's for the wee ones, summer clothing drive in Memory of Ben Clough, coats for the needy, trunk or treat, Smokies trip, pies in our faces, many pizza suppers, Archie Wade and his Christian Magic Show,The Mom song, Doughnuts with Dad, food drive for the pantry, Operation Christmas Child, Breakfast with Santa, swimming party, Christmas musical, Salvation Army bell ringers, other things that my brain has probably chosen to forgot... the food fight should have fell into that category haha and of course the best VBS ever Allison Williams!! We have the best folks who will do whatever they can to make sure our children have a great time at church. Even though we have a whole lot of fun, the most important part is teaching the kids about Jesus. The fun is nothing if Jesus isn't living in the hearts of these kids. I want to thank the parents for getting up when it is hard to on Sunday mornings knowing your body could use the extra rest, for bringing them on Wed. nights when you rather come home from work and plop on the couch. You are showing your children learning about Jesus and fellow shipping with your church family is important. Proverbs 22:6 tells us, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." I look forward to the New year with much excitement for you and your children. I pray that 2013 will be a year that you and your children grow even closer to God. Big thank you our whole church family, staff and preacher because you support us in every endeavour with excitement and love! It is great to be involved in the children's ministry at WBBC!! God has really blessed us and I know He has great plans for our future! 2013 bring it on!
