Good News Club

Good News Club

The Good News Clubs is an after school program focused on reaching kids with the gospel. It’s designed for kids and makes learning about the bible fun!

Children who have received parental permission come to the club after school is dismissed and separate into different rooms based on grade level. They are split again into smaller groups whereby they grab a snack and begin going over bible verses with their small group leaders. Sometimes they may sing a song or listen to a story but the goal is to learn about the bible. When small group time is up all groups converge in the gym for some worship, stories, and bible lesson.

Good News Club helps provide a safe and loving environment for kids while sharing the love of Jesus. It is a program that reaches children of all backgrounds and gives an opportunity for children that don’t go to church to learn about Jesus.

Not only was this an action-packed spectacle with tons of cute kids and great costumes (not to mention an amazing set built by even more amazing volunteers), but a great reminder for us to hide God’s word in our hearts so that we can develop the fruits of the spirit in our lives.

Preparing the Child vs. Preparing the Road

Preparing the Child vs. Preparing the Road

Early in our parenting journey my wife and I heard an anonymous statement that has stuck with us and guided our approach to parenting. “It is better to prepare the child for the road than to prepare the road for the child.” This simple saying contains a wealth of wisdom and really sums up the divide in parenting today. On one side parents feel that they have to do for and provide every advantage for their children in order to ensure their “success.” On the other side, parents strive to teach personal responsibility and allow their children to learn from their mistakes (and the natural consequences of those mistakes.)

Should children be parents’ number one priority?

 

It almost sounds heretical to suggest otherwise. Of course, the nurture and guidance of our children is a very important responsibility of any parent. Deuteronomy 6 states that our number one responsibility is to love God with all our heart, soul and strength. Then we are to teach that “diligently” to our children. But this command should not be interpreted to mean that our children are our second highest priority after loving God. What it says is that teaching them to love God should be second only to our own love for the Lord. One of the best ways to teach them this is by having all other relationships in proper priority. When our world revolves around our children we are teaching them that they are our number one priority.
