Grace Church member Dave Allston shares his thoughts on serving in a Preschool Small Group (you can also watch the video on the Grace YouTube channel):
Jesus talks about children differently than He talks about any other group of people. . . . I think [teaching children about Jesus] is one of the most important things you can do. . . . It's an easy thing to do, but it's a great opportunity, and a great way to learn to how to share who Jesus is with people. . . .
Children are very important to Jesus, and so they should be important to us. . . . One of the best ways to give your life away is to minister to children.
We have a number of immediate needs for Children's Small Group Leaders, for all age groups:
- Nursery (infants through toddlers): providing security and love
- Preschool (2's - 5k): teaching basic concepts of who God is
- Camp Grace (1st - 4th grades): teaching heart-level Biblical principles through main characters of the Bible
- Quest (4k - 4th grade): a special program on Sunday mornings for children who stay for 2 services; read more about Quest here.
