Our children's ministry begins each Sunday in a room all together. Pastor Walt, our children's ministry leader, leads them in prayer and they sing worship songs together before being released to their classes. Today the children sang a song that is a favorite of our family's, 'Imagine' by Rob Biagi. Looking around the room at each precious child while hearing their sweet little voices sing the words to this song, my eyes misted over. Each small child is a miraculous seed of future hope. Oh, what they will do if they give their lives to the one who gave them theirs.
In my 2nd and 3rd grade Sunday school class I make it a point to teach my children that God loves them (John 3:16) and that He has a plan for them (Jeremiah 29:11-13). If they will just put their hand in His, they can't dream dreams big enough for what He has for their lives...and neither can we.
