Bible Studies For Life – Kids Family App

Have you tried the Bible Studies For Life: Kids Family App? It’s a great way to start meaningful conversations with kids. The App is packed with activities that kids will enjoy playing and have conversation starter ideas for every lesson.

Kids today love media and this App isn’t short on anything media related. It has music, videos, and interactive activity pages. It’s a great tool to help strengthen families in your church. Parents today (and their kids) are never far from their electronic devices and this app provides a great way for families to connect with each other over a medium they love.

Each week the One Conversation page will tell parents exactly what session to look at on the app. The app is available in the Apple Store and in the Google Play store. It seems like I’m forgetting to tell you something, now, what was it?

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the app and contents is completely FREE!

Six Reasons Comparisons Hurt Churches

Reason #4

4. When we compare, we become consumer members instead of serving members.The role of church members and leaders is to serve. We are to serve God first, and our fellow members next. When we compare churches, we are putting our self-interests and perceived needs ahead of others. We engage in “church shopping,” a phrase you will find nowhere in the Bible.

A Note of Thanks

Oh, how wonderful to see so many youth and children participating in the talent show Sunday night. God has blessed Walnut Street Baptist Church with an amazing diversity of talents and abilities.  I commend all who were willing to share their gift with us Sunday night. Our youth continue set a positive example for us all.

I am also grateful for the presence of so many in our congregation who came out Sunday night to support the youth and their goal of attending Fuge this year. While the amount collected ($2,000) will go a long way in fulfilling their goal, it was your attendance that meant so much them.

Further, I have to admit it was fun to wait until the worship service was over to “Spring Forward’ Sunday morning.  It does all of us good to be routed from our routines every now and then, for that is when growth occurs.

Often when Daylight Saving Time begins it is a down time in Bible Study attendance. Let me note that we had our 2nd highest attendance of the year (115). Our highest attendance was 116 on January 26th.

The key to our DST success is that our Sunday School workers and leaders went out of their way to promote it in a positive and uplifting fun way. As part of their weekly contacts, they made sure that everyone in their small group was notified of the change. This is how God’s work should work!

Finally, let me thank all of you for your cooperation and consistent positive support of the Kingdom work through Walnut Street Baptist Church

We labor together with God
