Kids For Christ

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 6:22

The KFC ministry continues to meet every Friday night 6pm to 7:30pm in the church hall, with the exception of public school holidays. Our weekly sessions include prayer, studying the Word of God, sharing and a wholesome snack prepared by Sis. Liz.

In 2010, it was laid upon my heart to tackle specific issues facing our children. One of those issues being bullying and gang violence. With the help of Elder Tony DeSilva and Bro. Dill we talked to the children of the importance of reporting this type of behavior as well as not being a part of it.

Another issue we covered was giving to those who are less fortunate than we are. We explored this subject by answering the question what would we do if we had a million dollars. After dreaming a bit, we then studied the parable of Lazarus and the rich man. After which we answered the question again. This time around a lot more emphasis was placed on helping those in need. The power of God’s Word speaks to even the youngest of us.

For the remainder of the year our theme was “Be ready to give and answer”. With continued study of God’s Word, tackling everyday issues and playing games we incorporated our theme. We ended the year with focus being placed on preparation for the annual Christmas play.

The KFC Youth Ministry along with the Sunday school participated in the Christmas program. The Christmas play being “Angels on Assignment”. The play was about the birth of Jesus from the angels’ point of view. The children practiced hard and reaped the rewards. They remembered their lines and perform with expression and enthusiasm. The program was supported very well by parents, members and friends. Our costumes were a collaborative effort of Elder Tony, Sis. Carol, Sis. Khamla, Bro. Smith and parents. Sis. Colleen prepared cookies and hot drinks to cap off the night for the fellowship time that was had after the program.

It is truly a blessing to see both young men and young ladies who wants to learn more about the Lord. The interesting thing is that there are more boys than girls. These young men are dedicated and are here rain or shine. Seeing their learning in KFC being manifested in the life of the church during Youth Sunday is quite rewarding. This ministry has been truly blessed and continues to grow by the grace of God and through the dedication of those who are committed to the ministry.
