This afternoon, it is important for parents and guardians to stay with the children throughout the event. This is an opportunity for mothers and fathers to fellowship together while the children have fun. You will learn about the restart of TeamKid which will begin soon. We want to encourage you to bring your children to the church every Sunday evening this Fall where they will continue their adventure through the Bible. Meet the leaders and teachers who will be guiding the sessions. There is no better plan for children to be taught the entire Bible than what will be offered each week at Grace through the TeamKid ministry.
Two boys were playing in the snow one day; when one said to the other, “Let us see who can make the straightest path in the snow.” His companion readily accepted the proposition, and they started.
One boy fixed his eyes on a tree, and walked along without taking his eyes off the object selected. The other boy set his eyes on the tree also, and, when he had gone a short distance, he turned, and looked back to see how true his course was. He went a little distance farther, and again turned to look over his steps. When they arrived at their stopping place, each halted and looked back. One path was true as an arrow, while the other ran in a zigzag course.
“How did you get your path so true?” asked the boy who had made the crooked steps.
“Why,” said the other boy, “I just set my eyes on the tree, and kept them there until I got to the end; while you stopped and looked back and wandered out of your course.”
Thank you, Children’s Team Leaders for the straight path you are setting for our children. You are showing them the way, by keeping your eyes on Jesus and staying on course. Your sacrifices and example are being used by God to make their paths straight, “Let your eyes look directly ahead and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet and all your ways will be established.” (Proverbs 4:25-26)
