Wow! Where do I begin? Saturday was over the top! We had planned for around 60 kids to show up….well, we had over 250 kids in KidzWorld! We had to do some scrambling, but all in all things went well. The picture on the right is one from the Adventure Avenue Theater. You can see the kids were wall-to-wall and hip-to-hip. The carnival after the service was great and lots of fun prizes and treats were given away.
Sunday we had a great time again with all the kids in KidzWorld. In Route 252 we told the story of Jesus and why he came and died on the cross and rose again. I told the story and my son Nate did a drawing in sand depicting the cross and the tomb. The kids loved it and it was just a unique way to present the Gospel. We gave the invitation for kids to talk to an adult about what they had just heard and this morning at NewSpring Church 8 kids accepted Christ! Boy, that will make your day!
I can’t say thank-you enough to all of you who helped us out this weekend. It wouldn’t have happened if you didn’t show up and minister to kids. I know many of you did double duty and were called on to do things at the last minute and I appreciate so much your willingness to help. I don’t how God keeps track of everything, but each one of you have a part in those 8 kids accepting Christ.
This weekend at NewSpring we had over 3100 people come and celebrate Easter. Many first time guests experienced the environments that you folks help to create. May God bless you for all you do.
