“From infancy you have known the holy scriptures…” (2 Tim 3:15)
How exciting it is to be BACK at The Tabernacle as Pastor over Nursery and Preschool Ministries as well as our Day Care. Every Sunday morning at 10:00am and Tuesday at 7:00pm our youngest worshippers are being encouraged to engage in worship, scripture, prayer and activities that surround our BIG GOD STORY and theme for the day. We believe that young children, much like Samuel the prophet, will get their start in hearing from God when they are very young. It is our calling to foster a spiritual ear to hear the Holy Spirit as He works His formation in their young lives. Kids in nursery through age four, dance and praise in our large group setting. Teachers give the BIG GOD STORY from the Bible and then walk the children through activities that provide a place for their hearts to respond to the message each week. We follow a similar theme for our Rainbows Club on Tuesday nights as the kids interact with the Bible stories and life applications.
Each week we take time to BLESS the children and to lay hands on them and pray. The children are receptive to this and lay their faces to the carpet or bow their heads as we take time to pray a blessing that we believe God has given for that week. The Presence of the Holy Spirit is evident as the staff prays.
How can you be involved?
Volunteer a Sunday each month. New children are attending, and families are receiving ministry through the concerted efforts of our staff. At least 4 new adult and youth assistants are needed to team with our teachers as we continue to grow in our children’s ministries.
Pray. A prayer team is sweeping our preschool building in prayer in each week to pray over the building, the staff and the young children who attend the programs in our building each week. Please join your prayers with them as God establishes His Presence and purpose in the lives of our children both in our church ministries as well as our Day Care.
Recruit. Invite new families to attend our Preschool Ministries and to utilize our awesome Day Care services throughout the week.
We are Laying a Foundation of Faith in our youngest worshippers.
Yours for this New Season of Ministry,
Pastor Sharon Baldwin
Director Nursery/Preschool Ministries and Southwestern Day Care
