Train up a child in the way he should go;

even when he is old he will not depart from it.

—Proverbs 22:6


Good News for Our Kids

by Joe White

I LOVE our children’s ministry. I love that it’s fun. I love that it's engaging. I love that it’s fueled by nearly 100 volunteers! But most of all, I love that it’s a place my children get to experience the gospel every Sunday. At Lake Baldwin Church, we’re not just teaching kids how to be nice (though some of our little rascals could use a crash course); we’re teaching them about the only hope they have: Jesus.

When the children of LBC grow “old”, what is it we hope they will “not depart from”? The GOSPEL. The gospel that tells them they are even more messed up than they know, but they are loved by God in Christ more than they could ever imagine. Today, pray for all the little ones of Lake Baldwin Church. Pray that God would use Splash kids to train our little ones up in the gospel!

How to pray today:

  • For the hearts of all the children in learn and love the story of Jesus!
  • For our SPLASH Director Heather Shiflett, and our Assistant Director, Sam Stotts. Pray for joy in leading, for wisdom and managing the many tasks and people.
  • For the SPLASH Leadership Team, teachers, and other volunteers: joy in serving, and grace as they share the story of Jesus in creative ways.
  • For our entire church family to embrace the vision of SPLASH Kids, and an abundance of volunteers for all age groups.
