Last night we once again grew in number to a total of 46 in the children's ministry and 16 middle school students! What a blessing to continue seeing the excitement and growth happening here at King of Glory.
Last night, our students went through "The Fall". Being reminded that we were created in God's image to trust and obey in Him. However, there was a crafty serpent who entered the garden and convinced Adam and Eve that God had lied to them and tried to keep something good from them. "6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise,[b] she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate." (Genesis 3:6). As a result of their actions, life as they knew it was changed. Verse 7 says their eyes were opened. Sin came in and created an instant change in the lives of Adam and Eve. Once God returned, we see that there is a further punishment for their disobedience. We see that sin eventually leads to death.
The good news for us is that this story doesn't end here! The mystery continues. As we continue on in King's Kids, we will see that God has a plan to fix the problem we have created for ourselves. We will continue to see the redemptive work of God as we go through the Old Testament leading up to Jesus Christ!
As your students continue to grow and learn the work and plan that God has for them, I would ask that you would continue to pray for them! Pray that God's Word would continue to soak into their life as the grow in the depth and knowledge of who God is and what God has done for us! Please also pray for our volunteers that are giving their time to teach and walk alongside your students during Wednesday nights. And finally, continue to pray for one another as you go through parenthood together. Pray for wisdom, strength and patience as you are the examples your children look up to.
If there are any questions, if you would like to know more about what is going on Wednesday nights, or if you would like to come join the volunteer team please feel free to contact me through email or phone.
