Family Bible School- Day 1

This New Years Day we made a resolution to help families teach their kids about the Lord. We had a time of singing, memorized a passage of God's Word, learned more about the culture and conditions in Bible times, and what all that means to us today.

We had 18 in attendance, including 13 children, 3 mothers, 1 grandmother, and 1 father. We need to get more fathers involved here, but it is a good start, right? Right! We hope to use this meeting time to encourage families and share the Gospel with those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their Savior.

After the Family Bible School time, almost everyone stayed and we visited for 1/2 hour or so, then all headed to Bayview park. The playground there and bike paths made it a bit easier on the kids (and parents) as they had a bit of energy that needed to be relieved. So, we spent another hour or more talking, kids playing, edifying and encouraging one another. This is how church should be! Praise the Lord for the good turnout and the chance to work together in training our children about God's Word.
