Today I am posting a video about serving in children’s ministry. Please don’t skip over this post.
I want you to know something. The longer God has me in his grip at this particular time in my life I find myself seeking him in how to “best” reach children and families in our community. I love my position here at MCA Church and the opportunities God has and is giving me. There is more to do here in Anchorage!
A few questions we are asking God:
-How do we best help children/families?
-Is there a “most” effective tool or way forward?
We are in process of asking God to build the team. Yes, we have a great team now but I believe there is more to come. I have gifts in some areas but not in all areas. God knows who will be part of this time in “His” story and something we can do is to pray for him to provide the laborers for this part of the journey. Luke 10:2 says: “The harvest is truly great, but the laborers are few: pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.” Bill Bright said, “only two percent of believers in America regularly share their faith in Christ with others.” Based on that quote, we might suspect that Luke 10:2 is probably the most neglected exhortation to prayer in the Bible. Who is going to feel comfortable praying for laborers if he is not laboring in the harvest fields himself?
Lets change that today! Join me and pray for laborers and then say, “Here I am Lord; send me.”
