I’m so happy you’re back!  I’m glad we haven’t worn out our welcome yet!
We’re on week four of our seven-week adventure.

Today will be short, but especially sweet!

Even when the world is locked down, the Gospel is for everyone!
And for everyone, I am speaking particularly about children.
Today’s keyword is children.

but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14

By far the greatest victim of the Covid-19 has been our children…

Imagine babies that are born in a world of faceless people.
Imagine children who can’t attend Sunday School.
Imagine children that can’t play on swings or play soccer, or run freely, or take ballet lessons or just hang out with their friends, or go to birthday parties.

That’s the world our children are living in.

Yet the Gospel is unchained…even for children.

We are saddened to not be able to offer our vacation Bible school for the second summer in a row, but we are thankful for the teachers who prepare lessons for the children every week.

On top of that, as a preacher I have enjoyed preaching to the children every week.

so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
    it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
    and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:11

Next week it looks like the elementary-aged children will be able to return to school…for how long we don’t know, but we know that they are in God’s hands, and they are loved, and the Gospel is alive.

Please pray for the children!

We look forward to seeing you next week!
