Family Connection 01.17.2011

Family Connection

“Then he (the jailer) brought them out. He asked, ‘Sir, what must I do to be saved?’ They (Paul and Silas) replied, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus. Then you and your family will be saved.’”-Acts 16:30-31 (NIrV)
“Say with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord.” Believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Then you will be saved. With your heart you believe and are made right with God. With your mouth you say that Jesus is Lord. And so you are saved. Scripture says, ‘The one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.’”-Romans 10:9-12 (NIrV)
“What I received I passed on to you. And it is the most important of all. Here is what it is. Christ died for our sins, just as Scripture said he would. He was buried. He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as Scripture said he would be.”-1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (NIrV)

I love to teach children about following the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, one of our values in Flight School, our elementary program, is “I can learn to live for God now and follow Him for life”. It is a privilege for me to present the Gospel to children and help them learn how to become fully, functioning, followers (disciples) of Jesus. This is a passion not only for me, but for every member of our Children’s Ministry team; and we love to help parents learn how teach their children how to follow God as well.

This Sunday, January 23, I will be holding a salvation/baptism class for children and parents during the 9:15 service here at the church. If your child has expressed an interest in baptism, or you feel your child would like more information on what it means to become a Christian, I would like to invite you to attend this class. To RSVP for the class, please contact Susan Coia at 760-200-2000 ext. 2275.

I will also post the information from the class on our website next week. I hope you find it helpful. In case you didn’t know our goal, in children’s ministries, is to create a partnership between our ministry and parents who are committed to a systematic plan of action where their sons and daughters develop faith and character in Jesus Christ.

Walking by your side,
Brett Humphrey
