How it Works–The Fanning the Flame process, Part 3

Continued from yesterday …..

A thought dawned on me:  for years our congregation had bemoaned our lack of young people.  In years past, large Sunday School classes filled the church each week.  “Where are all the children now?”  we asked.  I felt God answering, “Here are some of my children who need you.  Will you help them?”

We’re starting small.  The plan is to host some of the children two evenings each month.  We’ll have snacks, library books to choose, and a program which will include Bible study, games or a movie.  Our first meeting in mid-May was a success.  The girls especially loved my peanut butter chocolate chip bars and they are interested in baking classes to learn to bake for themselves.  Some have come to church on Sundays.  God is definitely at work.  We don’t know exactly where we’re going or what will happen next, but we know who’s leading the way.
