Stay in their lives December 2021
Loran Tang, recruiter and training coordinator of Children Ministry
“It takes a village to raise a kid.” We all heard that. However, parents, please stay in the village even though you have the whole village to back you up!
As a children ministry worker for over 20 years, I saw too many parents step back too far and too early as they believe their kids need peers more than them. It must be one of the most deceiving myths today! If you are determined to raise a Godly kid, please stay in his/her life and show them God matters to you. Be their world when they are toddlers. Be their compasses when they are preteens. Be their coaches when they are teenagers. Be their friends when they are adults.
Children workers love and teach your kids as their spiritual teachers and as your partners. However, no matter how diligent we are or how excellent our programs are, your participation is still the most significant factor to help them grow in their spiritual lives.
I hope you will take a moment to look at the alarming rate of teenagers and young adults who drop out of church. I don’t want to be offensive or blunt but it’s obvious that just taking our kids to church would not enable them to build up a deep relationship with God. We all need to live out our lives to show the joy, excitement and meaning when we follow Jesus closely. When our kids see that, they would naturally and happily follow our steps into God’s presence.
Join us in Children Ministry so we can work together to build up your kids’ spiritual lives. Your presence will make a huge impact!!
I will feature our programs, new developments, and our workers in coming blogs. Please stay tuned.
