As Fall comes closer this means cooler weather. I hear people talking about leaves changing, crackling fires, and warm sweaters. The seasons bring about change, some of which are good and some not so good. Our lives are like the seasons. We have good changes or not so good changes. Our lives change by choices we make. God gives us choices in every season of our life. Prayer and faith are important in the changes and choices we make. If we choose to do things the same way and never make changes, we will not grow and strengthen. No season of life will ever be the same, there will always be changes. With God as our choice in all things, He will see us through the seasons of life. As the leaves change color, wither and fall, remember our lives are a lot like that, but God always makes things new and beautiful in another season.
In just the 8+ years I have been in children's ministry at Cook, there have been changes and seasons of growth and strength. Our Cook Kidz Ministry is amazing. I thank God for each and everyone that encourages, loves, volunteers, supports, and prays for our
children's ministry. You each mean so much to this ministry. You all are a vital part of God's life changing work in the lives of our children. We are continuing to grow and see new families weekly. God has got great plans.
If you would, pray about where God can use you and your gifts to be the change, where kids can see Him through your loving, patient, and spiritual teaching. We have opportunities for you to serve in morning and evening Extended Session, Connect Groups, Awana, Children's Church, Bible Drill, and other ministries. If you feel God would have you help, contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the office.
