The kids had finally done it! They built a Lego Tower from the floor to the ceiling…
and then it happened.
It only took one brief moment, but it was inevitable. The tower went crumbling to the floor. There were no tears, but a good number of laughs and a “Oh man!” but we knew it was going to happen. Do you know why? It’s simple really; the tower did not have a strong foundation. The “foundation” of the Lego Tower was one little Lego and then the hands of the kids and leaders holding it together.
We all know that having a strong foundation is the key for the survival of any structure and it is the key to all of our lives as well. In Grace Kids our “WHY” behind what we do is to create a foundation for life that is based on Jesus Christ. As it says in 1 Corinthians 3: 10-11:
“By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
Jesus Christ is the foundation for our faith, for all of our lives and our goal in Grace Kids to partner with families to build that foundation for life on Jesus. So, when kids go out of 6th grade they understand that God loves them, that he wants a forever friendship with them and they are going to know him more and more!
So, over the next few days you are going to hear how we hope to partner with families to build a foundation for life on Jesus. And we do that by keeping things simple, safe and fun! Be sure to read over the next few days!
I invite you to pray a few things over the course of this series:
- That all kids in Wayne County will hear about the love of Jesus and make Him their forever friend
- For Grace Kids to find the best ways to support and partner with families
- For your next step with kids and families: To pray for them and/or to volunteer
Thank you for partnering with us as we work together to build in kids a foundation for life based on Jesus Christ!
