It’s stewardship campaign time and our 2017 tagline is ‘McEachern is a light on the corner.” Invited to share last week as a champion for ministry with children for a few minutes in all services, I carried in my cardboard cutout Jesus and shared the following:

The best way for kids to know Jesus is to know people who know Jesus.
Like John – who marches, sings in our Youth Choir and teaches kindergartners how to play checkers.
Like Jennifer & Derek – who are present every single week in 3rd grade Sunday school. Because when kids can trust them to be there every time, kids learn to trust our Great God every time.
Like Selena and Randy who champion for space and signage.

The best way for kids to know Jesus is to know people who know Jesus.
Like Melissa – who teaches a small group of twenty-six 3rd-5th grade girls they are Princesses of the King, King Jesus, that is.
Like Leah who talks with 1st graders as she builds with Legos, Ali who draws with 2nd graders, and Eli who chats with every little guy in the room.

The best way for kids to know Jesus is to know people who know Jesus.
Like James – who will be driving our 4th & 5th graders to Bethlehem for Christmas (Bethlehem Georgia) and 5th graders to Camp Glisson in February.
Like Stacie – who’s a connector and toots the horn of McEachern kids at every soccer game. Like Lolita who gathers supplies for every Sunday morning small group every week. Like Donna & Martha who are emptynesters, but decorated a trunk last week at the local Chick-Fil-A Trunk or Treat to give out candy and information about what’s going on with #mceachernkids

The best way for kids to know Jesus is to know people who know Jesus.
Like Jeff & Melanie who are here every time the doors are open, Brittany & Zach who have a spirit of YES, Monica who plays on the floor in her high heels with the best dressed class of kindergartners who should be on the cover of a high-end fashion magazine. And like Mike who teaches a small group of young boys what it takes to be Knights of the King as walking examples of what a man of faith sold out for Jesus looks like, sounds like, and prays like.

The best way for kids to know Jesus is to know people who know Jesus. Like you!

“But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you: to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul.” Joshua 22:5
