Last Sunday I was a part of an AMAZING opportunity…I volunteered with Impact! Kids so parents could participate in the “Foundations” class. Words cannot begin to express how humbling…and exciting it was…holding children that a short time ago I was dedicating to the Lord during a Sunday service. Denise and I prayed for many of these children while they were still in the womb. To know the impact that Impact! Church has had on the kids and their parents got me pretty emotional.
In Matthew 19 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Christ himself established the importance of making an impact in the life of a child. Over the last few months we’ve seen more and more infants, toddlers and grade-school children attending Impact! Church. They need a safe, fun place with caring adult mentors to hear about Jesus. As we talk about leaving behind “good enough” for GREATER I can’t help but feel that one of the best ways to experience GREATER is to invest in the life of a child. To know that kids are being reached for the Kingdom of God and change is happening in young lives is such an incredible thing to be a part of. Impact! Church you have a chance to be a part of that…part of something GREATER…part of something that will have an impact beyond you. One way is to volunteer to be an adult mentor in Impact! Kids by contacting the church office. You can also invest financially in Impact! Kids by making a donation to our “Grow & Go” initiative. Be a part of something GREAT…be a part of Impact! Kids.
