The Most Important Decision of Your Child’s Life

This past weekend in KidzWorld, we celebrated that fact that Jesus did not stay in the grave! Jesus conquered sin and because of that, we can have a relationship with Him. In Route 252 for elementary age students, our bottom line says: Whatever happens,remember that God loves you!


If your child is interested in knowing more about God’s love and beginning a relationship with Him, JumpStart is a great tool. JumpStart is a 30 minute session designed for elementary students and their parents. We talk in very simple terms about what it means to have Jesus as your best friend. We also give some “homework” that will help families follow up on the session at home.

Interested? Just sign up at Hope to see you there!

Earthly Rewards

2016-03-14 18.14.58Children are a gift from the Lord;
    they are a reward from him. Psalm 127:3 (NLT)

As I welcomed my fourth grandchild, August Joseph Mahannah, into the world yesterday, I was reminded of this verse. It’s true that when we think about treasures or rewards from God, we most often think about what is waiting for us in heaven. It’s going to be amazing! But there is a reward that we can enjoy here on earth and that reward is our children. They are a GIFT from God–a REWARD from Him!! Spend some time right now thanking God for your gifts. Let them know how much you love them. Enjoy every minute God gives you with them.
