Community Children's Hubs

 

Firm foundation

The Bible says in Colossians 2:7 "Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the Foundation for your life."

People who do not understand God's purpose for their lives end up living for the Moment and so do the children. Before we can begin to show children how to live their lives and what principles to build their lives upon, we must first lay a foundation. The only way we can lay a foundation in the lives of our children is to show them that God created them for a reason.

He made them:

1. In His Image

2. To Know Him

3. For a Purpose

That foundation must explain their purpose In life. The children must understand that God made them for a reason. If this Foundation is not laid, the children will think that Christianity is just a bunch a rules they have to follow, and will not understand that they were created to live for God.

Once this foundation is laid, it can be built upon. We can then Focus on Christian Living, Following God's Commands and Facing Life's Battles.

One place where this can be effectively administered is in the Community Children Hubs.

At these clubs our aims are as follows.

OUR AIMS

  • DEVELOP CHILDREN TO BE WHAT GOD CREATED THEM TO BE. Proverbs 22:6 
  • CHILDREN TO BEAR FRUIT John 15:5
  • CHILDREN WILL GROW TO KNOW JESUS AND TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIM. Mathew 28:19
  • TRAIN AND EQUIP CHILDREN TO BE DISCIPLES. 2Timothy 2:2

In one of the projects called Samuel’s Association; we train Sunday school teachers, Youth workers and Pastors on how to evangelize communities through children’s and youth ministries. We train Children’s facilitators on how to effectively run children Ministry and particularly a Community Children Hubs, tells the Gospel to children, How to communicate to different age groups, Lesson planning and how to develop their own curriculum, Teaching Life Skills to Pre-teens and Teenagers, Child Protection, Advocacy and Wellbeing. Through these trainings we have established over 40 Children and Youth Community Hubs to help establish a crime free and God fearing generation.

As children come to Christ, they often open doors for the Gospel to be shared with their families, as well. In many resistant areas, this opportunity must be handled with great prayer and respect. But children often bring their entire families to Christ shortly after believing in Him! Children can also learn to share the Gospel with other children! Their friends are also reachable, teachable and connected to families. They have their all lives ahead of them and can be part of reaching future generations for Christ if we reach them now. Children have amazing potential to not only be the future Church but the church today!
