"The Promise for the Children"
Mike Tilley

Isn’t it amazing that our children are included in the covenant promises that God makes to his people? Throughout Scripture, in both Old and New Testaments, we see how God has a concern for both parents and children. Jesus famously said, “Let the children come to me” (Matthew 19:14).

Our SPLASH effort is an expression of this vision, of God’s heart for children. Today we can give thanks to God for the many people in Lake Baldwin Church who work alongside Michelle Crouse to sow seeds of the gospel in the hearts of children. The beautiful story of Jesus is shared with children in an environment of security, fun, relationships, and love.

Imagine what it will be like, years from now, when children look back on their experience in SPLASH! Memories are being made that will last a lifetime. Your prayers today are a part of watering the seeds of the gospel that will bear fruit in the coming years.
