We are very excited and motivated about KIDS MINISTRY. The grade 6 elementary kids have been encouraged by our leaders to lend a hand with the younger children during ministry time.
It is an opportunity for us to evaluate who has the right heart and attitude needed to be future assistants. It is such a joy to see those with a desire, participating as an assistant. We believe it is important to provide for them a way to step out in faith and be used by God. These real life encounters with loving God and others, directs them down a path of obedience to God’s Word and possible leadership.
They look forward to moving on into Youth Ministry once they enroll in Grade 7. Current Hope for the Island staff such as Marygrace, Janise, Gina and Leah also started out as assistants in grade 6. They know full well what life is like for these kids as they overcome obstacles, find hope in the love of Christ and discover His purpose for their life.
We feel as leaders, that Kids Ministry is a huge opportunity to invest in the upcoming generation of future leaders and parents in this community. We know God has a plan for each one of their lives. What can compare to being a part of guiding these impressionable kids into a secure identity as God’s children and witness them bear fruit for God’s glory!
Hope staff testimony:
“These are the children in my Kid’s Ministry. They are praying for each other. I’m thankful to God because I was able to see these kids do something that usually only adults do. They really have their own faith already in God and we can see it lived out. Glory and honor belongs to God”
