The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous and his ears toward their cry. The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you for considering pursuing the vision for the next generation with us!
The opportunities in Family Discipleship are varied enough to involve many different people with different gifts. If you have a heart for God and a desire to make Him known to the next generation, there is probably a place for you in these ministries. Our volunteer process is designed to help determine where our opportunities and your gifts and interests come together.
Behavioral Principles and Expectations
It is our joy to be in community with young people here at Bethlehem. Whether young children or twelfth-grade young adults, we hope they will be stirred up to love Jesus and spread his fame.
Earlier this summer, Pastor Sam Crabtree reflected on Jesus' command to "Let the little children come..." As you think about planning your Fall, please consider this:
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven”—Matthew 19:14
One of the ways to “let them come” is to welcome them personally. Talk with children. And they don’t have to be your own offspring. In the verse above, Jesus wasn’t speaking about his offspring.
Pastor Sam Crabtree is Bethlehem's Pastor for Small Groups, North.
Summer is a great time to serve in a relaxed atmosphere, and minister to young children and their mothers.
