God's Amazing Blessings!
September 2, 2018, 12:00 AM

This morning, as I have for the past several days, I am trying to “wrap my mind around” the manifold and manifest blessings that God is pouring out on this beloved Church.

In the past ten or so years, we have become a much younger Church and a much more vibrant Church because of this blessing!

By the late summer of this year, we were already seeing 45 to 50 Children (nursery through High School) in our services each week. These children already make up about 35% of our weekly worship attendance. We already have 80 teens enrolled in our Youth Ministry and our GCF Team already has about 35 to 40 teens here each Sunday afternoon. Last Sunday, at their Fall Kick-off, they had 89 teens and parents present.

I think you are aware that over the past four to six weeks six new families have started attending our worship services and (in addition to some wonderful friends of one of our families) five of these families have 14 children between them.

In addition to this, our IGNITE! mid-week Children’s Ministry has kicked-off with an average of 88 kids and 32 workers each night!

If this trend continues, and let’s pray faithfully that it does, we may have to stop saying that we HAVE a Children’s Church and start saying that we ARE a Children’s Church.

I am thankful and rejoicing this morning because GOD has chosen to bless us in this way working through the means of our many, many, many gifted and faithful leaders and workers.

Thank YOU, LORD, and thank you Church!

Remember this… “God blesses a Church that blesses Children!”

Matthew 19:13-14

(13) “Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, 
(14) but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
