I just have to tell somebody today. Our churches have the best volunteers. Think of the folks who teach our children's Sunday school classes or serve in the nursery for instance. These are the very people who make God real to our kids. Next to their parents, these people are the most important connection for our kids to to faith.
I don't mind bragging about them (they wouldn't do it for themselves) but our Sunday school teachers spend hours planning for their kids. They shop for just the right snacks, they plan just how they are going to say what they want to say, they shop for the right props and toys that make their lessons powerful. They do all this because they love their kids...and they love Jesus.
Come see them this weekend, I'm confident you will be amazed as I am by their commitment to their kids and their love for Jesus.
