Children's Ministries

Ask and it will be given; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”  Matthew 7:7

Tuesday, September 12th, I was feeling very discouraged.  Discover Club was scheduled to begin the next day, and I had done a lot of preparation for the big day.  I had colorful, inviting posters made and put them around town.  I sent personal invitations to children who had attended VBS in June, and I even put the word out on Facebook.  I had a wonderful Orange lesson ready for 20 kids, and I was very excited for the new beginning and opportunity to bring the word to our community’s kids.  But, by that Tuesday, I had a total of three children registered for Discovery Club.  I felt so sad and defeated, and I had tears in my eyes and I communicated this information to Pastor Joe.  Then I prayed.  On Wednesday, as Pastor Joe and I watched twelve children run around the Family Life Center squealing in delight, my eyes again filled with tears.  Grinning from ear to ear, Pastor Joe looked at me and said, “careful what you ask for.”  Oh my soul, yet! I asked and God delivered.  Again.  As Always.

In Christ,
