We only had eight kids at Bible School last night.
It makes me sad. I want kids to know Jesus and somehow we aren't getting the message to them. I feel like it is the church body's calling to bring in people and share Jesus with them, and therefore I'm partly responsible for the fact that there aren't kids there. I don't really know what to do though. Teachers in the public schools have trouble getting kids to come to school and state law requires kids to go there. If they have trouble then of course we'll have trouble... It just makes me sad that Bible School isn't valued by people enough to make them want to be part of it, or make their kids be part of it.
Please people! Send your kids to church so they can learn about Jesus!
There were no kids in the 1st and 2nd grade class I was supposed to teach, and I had been really excited about getting to know the kids and having the opportunity to tell them point blank about Jesus. It's so nice to be able to do that, since in the schools we have to do it in like a sideways, almost-sneaky manner. And Bible School used to be our big rally for getting kids to come to Sunday School and character building activities and beginner's band... Why don't people value these things? It makes me sad because I value them and I want other people to enjoy and participate in them too, but their lack of interest basically tells me that the things I value aren't worth valuing in their opinion.
I hope my Sunday School class has more than two students this year! I've been telling Noah to bring his friends...
Ironically, today divisional leaders came and recognized the success of our Sunday School.
