Hello Parents, Last week I sent you a portion of an article about Family Ministry from a Children’s Minister named Jim Wideman that I wanted to share with you. Before doing that though, I wanted to offer some suggestions for useful sites and for people who are looking for good resources: Sites: www.hiskids.net – they offer free streamed audio of audio dramas for all ages. Little kids will like paws and tales. Down Gilead Lane is geared for young teens. Adventures in Odyssey is for the ages in between. http://www.aiowiki.com/wiki/ – This is great to use with Adventures in Odyssey. It has useful categories such as episode by theme or by bible verse that it’s applicable to, etc. Very useful teaching aid. http://www.jellytelly.com/ – Now that focus on the family has bought the JellyTelly company, it’s become a hub of safe games and videos that are christian themed. It is made by the same guy that created VeggieTales. 2 Book Suggestions: Helping Your Child Become… by Tim & Kirsten King – After their first child entered the world, Tim and Kirsten eagerly approached a few of their parenting heroes, hoping to unlock their secrets.

After years of asking, searching, reading, and […]

I’m breaking the article up into chunks because it’s a pretty lengthy article, but it’s a good one. Here’s Part I. James Wang Children’s Pastor — God’s plan to reach the world has always included the family. It doesn’t surprise me that the family and the church are under such attack. I’m glad we’re waking up, I just hope we repent and change our actions in time! In the early days of the modern Children’s Ministry Movement (1970’s) it would have really helped if we had read our Bible. Most of us were telling parents, “Go to church and give us your kids.” I now see without the church and family working together our kids will suffer. Two powers working together are stronger than either one on their own. To me family ministry is just helping the family want God’s best for their children at every age. Psalm 112:1-8 (NIV) tells us…”Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who finds great delight in his commands. 2 His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed… 6 Surely […]
