End of the Year Patch Performance

Our little sailors. . . .
Morning rehearsals . . . .

Here are our Navigators (the older kids) . . . The workers all did a great job in making the palm trees and decorating the stage. The kids did a FANTASTIC job and worked really hard on all of their parts.
I am so thankful that our children are being taught and trained in God's word. We have very dedicated "captains" who work hard every year and love these children.
It takes more than just bringing our children to church for them to develop a heart for God. They need to be taught God's truths through His word by memorizing scripture - understanding the meaning of what they are studying and serving others. I am thankful that the children have had this in their lives - it is something that I regret not having in my own life.
God is so gracious in allowing us to be able to have the wonderful and amazing job of teaching and training children - whether they are our own or someone elses. Each of us has a responsibility to show God's love to the children around us - it is truly an amazing task we are blessed with - we have the ability to change the hearts and minds of generations to come - It is sad that so many of us do not see it this way and forget to look in the face of a child and make the difference.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7
