At Streetlight, our theme for the summer was “Kingdom Kids”. For seven Wednesdays, we worked through Jesus’ teachings from part of the Sermon on the Mount where he taught about different attitudes and beliefs that characterize a true child of the King. Kids were encouraged to be salt and light to the world around them, to follow the golden rule, and to approach the Throne in prayer, among other important lessons.
We were very thankful to partner with Ancaster Canadian Reformed Church and Fellowship Canadian Reformed Church this year. Many volunteers provided food, leadership, fun, solid teaching and so much more! We also had a great contingent of junior volunteers which was made up of youth aged 12-16, some of whom have attended children’s programs in the past at Streetlight and were now able to serve as leaders in one of those programs. It was truly wonderful to see hearts young and old joined together in worship and praise of our Great King!
As we get ready for yet another season of child and youth ministry at Streetlight, we feel privileged to be able to serve these precious Kingdom Kids that Jesus invites to come to Him and to be a part of His church. Let us do everything we can not to hinder them, but to hurry them toward His arms that are outstretched in welcome and in blessing!
