Hello, Restoration family! This year has gotten off to a VERY exciting start in children’s ministry. In January, the
children’s department had 14 brand new visitors on Sunday mornings, and 3 for TeamKid on Wednesday evenings!
God is answering our prayers and bringing people!
ARE WE READY? In the book of Joshua, over and over again the Lord tells Joshua, who in turn tells the people,
to consecrate themselves and to be strong and courageous. We must prepare. We must have a plan in place for each situation that arises. We must have workers! The fields are ripe, and I believe that God is going to bring a harvest to us here at Restoration, but we must have enough volunteers to meet the needs of our children.
Some specific areas that you can be praying about, and asking God if He has a place for YOU in children’s ministry:
— We need 2 more Sunday School teachers who would be willing to take our K-2nd grade children. Currently, we meet all together, K-6th grade. However, if we get even a couple more children coming regularly, we will need to split the class.
— We need 3 or 4 more volunteers for Wednesday evenings. Specifically, it would be great if we had a baby nursery available, so that young parents could attend Bible study.
Finally, our sensory room for special needs kids will be ready soon. I am looking for a few dedicated people willing to be trained on how to handle children with Autism and other special needs. These people would be buddies for ONE child once a month, staying with that child in Sunday school and during worship service, so that their parents are able to learn and worship without worry.
Thanks for all of your love and support! Keep the prayers coming!
