Why should I get Involved?
Jesus told us to allow the children to come to Him and not to hinder them. Helping children come to know Jesus as Savior and learn to follow Him is one of the most vital responsibilities of the Church. According to George Barna, the probability of someone embracing Jesus as his or her Savior was 32% for those between the ages of 5 and 12 and decreases rapidly after that. If people do not embrace Jesus Christ as their Savior before they reach their teenage years, the chance of their doing so at all is slim.
