churchschoolIt only takes a little spark to ignite a fire. Yes, I was indeed very encouraged by sister Amelia who believes that I could share something from and about our WMC Children Ministry.

So, what transpired me to be so involved in our Church School?

“ Train a child the way he should go ,and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” ( Proverbs 22:6 )

“ Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them , for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” ( Matthew 19:14 )

These two powerful verses says it all. It was way back then in 2004 when I served as a teacher at the Methodist Kindergarten. I believe, God opened my eyes to see the needs of our Church School. There is always a vacancy to be filled. I answered to that call and have remained faithful since.

Research done in the US has proven that children tend to be more receptive to the Gospel than any other age group.
32% ages 5 -13 will accept Jesus as their Lord
4% of teens aged 14 – 18
6% adults

Hence , the importance of Children Ministry need not be stressed any further. We need to reach out to the kids . They are the church of the future. We have to reach out to them and evangelize to the children in a way that will interest them enough to learn at their level. We need to catch them young before the evil one blind their eyes from the Gospel of Truth.

Praise God for WMC Community Tuition and Methodist Youth Fellowship where the Church School children can follow up after Std 6. They will then be able to go into deeper knowledge of the Word Of God.

Children are increasing in numbers. We have 9 Indian children who are attending regularly. We need someone who can speak Tamil to help us cope with the Indian kids. We have some programs coming up, such as an outing for the children and our yearly Christmas celebration.

It is my prayer that God opens our eyes in such a way that our spirits stir with fervency over the area that needs our involvement and that you will join us in the Children Ministry and have this passionate vision for winning the children’s hearts for our Lord Jesus Christ.
