Last month, we invited people to write down the name of a child that they know who does not have a Sunday school to attend. That child could be a family member, neighbor, or friend of your own children.
We promised to pray for that child/family and to ask God to guide us to invite them in a warm, non-judgmental way to try our Sunday school which begins September 13th. We encouraged you to offer to pick the child up and bring them and any family members who want to attend so they have a friendly person to walk through our doors with.
It is hard for me to imagine anything more important than a life-giving faith in a God of love who is eager to help us be the best we can be.
Yes, I do think this is more important than being a star athlete, top student, popular, or famous. This holds no matter what our age! For we all know “stars” who fail at having good character.
A person with genuine faith is joyful, patient, faithful, loving, hopeful, serves others, makes the world a better place, and has a peace that no circumstance can shake. This is true “stardom”.
I hope that you are praying for someone that you can invite. Faith is meant to be shared.
Grace and Peace,
