Ask Your Church to Equip You

The past ten months have been difficult. Some of you may have caught covid. Some of you may have people you love who have battled with this disease. Some of you may have people you love who died due to covid. Your grandchildren have likely learned what it means to go to school "virtually". You, and the ones you love, may have experienced times of unemployment. Most of you, if not all of you, have likely not been to church very much in the past ten months - and this is very possibly true for the ones you love as well. If you have been able to return to church, Children's Ministry may not have restarted - or if it has, it has done so in an extremely limited way.

If you, and your grown children are focused upon handing down confident faith, then the children you love have likely been able to continue to grow in their walk with God. But, if church is the primary place where the children you love learn about God and why they are able to believe in Him and trust Him with confidence, then it is very possible it has been ten months since they - and the other children in your church - have been able to learn and grow in their walk with Him. Clearly, this is not what we want to see happen.

It does not have to continue to be this way. Please take time today to contact your church and ask them to use the "Life on the Goldilocks Planet" series with the families in their church. I have cut the price for the digital versions of this series to make it very easy - and affordable for churches to use this with their families. All they have to do is email me, and for just $1 per family, per digital book ($3 per family for the combined digital book), I will give them a special link for families to use to get their own digital copies. Then they will be able to use this series to help equip parents and grandparents to hand down confident faith. As a church, they will be able to encourage families to work through the books together - one animal and activity a week. As families participate, church leaders/ teachers will be able to connect through email to encourage and celebrate what everyone is learning! 

Please ask your church to do this - my email is - lyndagcj@gmail.com Have them contact me and get this started in your church. Do not let covid stop the handing down of confident faith to the next generation - instead use it to equip parents and grandparents so they are the ones focused upon doing this vital thing with the children they love!
