Some of the greatest servants in the local church are many times the people who get very little recognition. Many times it’s the men and women who prepare each week to teach your children about God’s love and His plan for their life.

I know how grateful I am for those who are called to minister to children. Both of my children had wonderful men and women of God who challenged them to learn scripture, to serve others and even develop wonderful musical skills. (well, at least Courtney–she’s the singer in our family)

Our office is joining the Children’s Office this weekend to offer a unique afternoon of training children’s workers who go “Beyond Sunday Morning.” There is no cost to attend this training event that will be held Sunday, September 11 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Portland Avenue Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.

Breakouts will include specific training in the areas of: I’m a Christian Now, TeamKid, Bible Drill, Mission Friends, Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, Children in Action and Children’s Music.

We hope your children’s workers are able to attend, but please make sure they register in the next couple of days at
