As I’ve said in previous blog posts, I have recently begun to preach for Children’s Church. As you all know I really enjoy working with kids and this has been a great opportunity for me to begin preaching practice. Well, Today the energy level had to be recorded at an all time high for my teaching experience. Seriously, I am so exhausted. One kid was bouncing up and down before class and I asked him what he was doing and he said, “Wellll, Today I don’t have a soccer game because it’s raining so I’m getting all my energy out now!” The way most of the boys were going I would have guess the same was true about all of them 🙂
On top of that the songs and special music went longer than planned and then my Pastor who usually goes overtime went shorter, so I had to quickly finish the story, lay out my points, sing a choir song and run them out the door. lol 🙂
It would take too much writing to describe the antics the kids had, but thankfully every children’s church was not like this morning. I think I’ll try starting the message earlier. At least most all the kids are very good with taking notes during the message. I think that will really help them grow in their christian life as they move into the adult services and take notes there also.
Though there are the crazy times like today with the kids, I think the kids have a fabulous future being raised in a church like this. Or rather to explain myself , they will have a fabulous future in heaven because the way things are looking I don’t know how fabulous this life will be on earth for christians 🙂 I’ll be praying that the parents are teaching these Bible lessons at home because much much much depends on what is taught in the home by the parents. Parents have the awesome responsibility to build upon what is taught in the preaching or they can easily tear down the preacher and the teachings. It’s a big responsibility because their children’s future depends on it.
Have a Great Day!!!
