Let the Little Children Come
TULSA – Every Wednesday, children ages six to 11 meet at the Tulsa Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church, under the direction of the children's ministry leaders, Betty Velazquez and the Chon family.
The children, both members and non-members, learn important age-appropriate Bible topics in a dynamic and didactic way. They sing, laugh and every child gets an opportunity to participate.
This is not a typical church program, though. This program was implemented in early 2018 and grew stronger over the course of the year. The end of the year saw even more joyful and surprising moments.
We felt the Holy Spirit move and lead our children to invite others. The children themselves invited their friends from the neighborhood and school to our year-end meeting to celebrate with us. We had seven children come who do not attend our church services. That was a joy!
The program consists of imparting spiritual knowledge to the children of our church, preparing for our great VBX children's campaign and teaching and encouraging the children to share the gospel. We also seek to develop leaders in our church until Christ comes.
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6.
