This past weekend I drove my son to college to begin his fall classes as a freshman. As I gave my son a hug from his dorm room and said good bye until Thanksgiving, I noticed as small leather book on his desk.
Curious as to what it was, I asked him. He said it was a Bible given to him, with a warm encouraging note on the inside cover, from his Catechism teacher. I was surprised.
He’d only been on campus a few hours, yet this was unpacked even before any family photos.
I thought of our and the programs we offer our youth and children; how important is it to teach basic Christian principles and the stories in which we learn to our young ones, and then develop their faith as they mature.
My son left home for college with a character and a foundation learned in no small part from his participation in the life of the church.
Beginning at 3 years old until high school, we provide opportunities for kids to understand and love Jesus through Sunday school classes, worship, youth groups, and mission work.
Kick-off Sunday is this Sunday, September 8th
Bring your kids, and encourage them to participate in one of our programs.
With your help, what they learn and experience will not be forgotten.
