Our children’s ministries are led by Randy Billings, who says “We are teaching that God’s Word is living and applies to us today. We are teaching children to be examples to those around them.”

As the Scripture teaches, “Let no one despise your youth; instead, you should be an example to the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

Billings adds, “We are excited to have the privilege of teaching children and we have teacher training classes to better prepare ourselves to teach children.”

Billings wants children and their parents to understand that God has blessed us by providing this special book of life instructions – the Bible  (read 2 Timothy 3:15-17).

He asks children to bring their Bible to church, noting “We provide opportunities and training to use the Bible all year! We want children learn to trust God all the time (Proverbs 3:1-6) and we encourage each family to study God’s word together at home. Review the lesson with your child each week by asking about the story your child heard. Ask how we can do what God wants.”

God’s Word is important for teaching us how to live yet so few take the effort or time to study it. How do you learn about God’s greatest gift? How do you work on your relationship with God? God’s Word will give guidance on living out your faith.

The world is always interacting with you. How do you know how to react to those interactions? The world’s desire is to take you away from a relationship with God. No amount of discipline, exercises, training, or workouts can keep you in shape for the spiritual battle that is going on around you without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Study God’s word every day. Pray & praise all the way.

We live in a world where no matter what you own it will wear out or break causing it to lose value. Still yet even satan knows you are valuable. No matter what, satan is trying to keep you from following Christ. He will do what he can to get you on his side. Satan wants you to think you do not have value. While evil goes on all around God shows us His power in His word and His world.  We must learn to discern between false teachings and God’s truth. Truth will always line up with Jesus and God’s redemption plan for us.  
Adam was formed with a physical life out of the dust of the earth. He was given a spiritual life when God breathed into him. Satan tried to take the spiritual life and left man with problems in the physical life. God provided a redemption plan. Adam just had to take a stand and ask for forgiveness.
You are valuable. God created you with abilities to think, solve, & serve. Do you know your true worth and value? Think about it – Jesus paid off your debt with His life. You are God’s wonderful creation. He created you with a purpose. Allow His Spirit to enter your life.
