backyard bible club

Monday, July 7, 2008

This is our second year to host a backyard Bible club in our neighborhood.  It feels a little crazy to be doing one this year, having a one-week-old baby.  But Adam and the girls have taken over all the responsibilities and have loved doing it!  They had a good time inviting the neighborhood kids (and getting out of the house with people, I think).  We are excited to have an evening club this year, just for the opportunity to interact with some of the parents.  Adam cooked out for the parents and it allowed some time with our neighbors.

It never fails, if we invite our neighbors over for a cookout and always rains!  Here we are staring at a hard rain and praying that our club could take place.  The rain went away soon after some kids arrived and we had about 8 kids join us.

The thing I love about Bible clubs is that they are led by teenagers from our church.  These guys and gals give away a lot of their time in the summer to train to teach our clubs.  This week our team will lead 4 clubs a day all week long.  They teach the kids a Bible story, play games with them, and share the gospel each day.  My kids love getting to know them.  They really have great influence with these little kids.
