Kids Can... walk with Jesus!!!

A few posts ago I posted a blog titled Kids Can... what? It talked about our Childrens Ministry at The Well and highlighted the fact that the tagline of our childrens ministry was Kids Can... Pray, Worship and Know God. Kids are a big part of who we are and why we exist as a church (our passion and one of our core values is to reach the lost, the hurting and the next generation), and we are constantly learning new and creative ways to stimulate their minds and grow their understanding of what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus.

We have an amazing childrens pastor, and she is not diffident about ensuring that our kids know that their prayers and their personal walk with the Lord are just as vital, engaging and powerful as those of any adult, including the pastors. Recently Claudia (our children's pastor) sent me this priceless photograph. It's a picture of her daughter, Daniela and a friend walking with Jesus! It was taken at the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, and as soon as I saw it I knew that it represented the culmination of everything that we do at The Well regarding kids ministry. You see, the idea behind the tag line: Kids Can Pray, Worship and Know God is completely exemplified in the simple idea that Kids can walk with Jesus!

Need I say more? Enjoy your day, and, somewhere in the midst of all the busyness, see if you can spare a moment to walk with Jesus too. I promise you, you'll be glad you did!

What a gorgeous picture. I can see myself in this picture. I'm going to Israel in November and I'll walk where Jesus walked. I'll feel like one of those children in the picture. Thanks for the post, Joseph!

Thank you Hope! I must admit that I'm a little envious of the fact that you'll be going to Israel in November. I haven't been in over six years and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms. Ask your guides to show you a locust tree while you're there(it gives you a whole new understanding of what John the Baptist ate in the wilderness as opposed to the insect).
