At a meeting every quarter of the year the Marcos 10:14 Kids Club highlights children who have had a birthday during one of the three months. True Path Ministry and the Iglesia Getsemani church team included a birthday celebration in its weekly club meeting on Thursday, June 2nd.
We sang Feliz Cumpleaños (happy birthday), took a photo and shared cupcakes. For some of these children this is the only time there are festivities around their birthday.
There are an average of 40 children (and about 20 adults) who learn about and honor Christ at the meetings. Each week, club has enjoyed popularity as a place to pray, hear a gospel teaching, sing, laugh during fun games, make a craft with their own hands and enjoy a light meal.
They spend about two hours with an essential group of faithful youth and adult volunteers. Teacher Ana leads them with lessons prepared by TPM in advance and a craft that amplifies the teaching. During the past few weeks lessons have included:
- June 2; Obey It and Succeed; 2 Timothy 3:15
- May 26; Book of God for Man (10 Commandments); 2 Timothy 3:16
- May 19; Secrets of Queen Esther; Psalm 118:24
- May 12; Israelites Return to Israel; 1 Chronicles 28:20
“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God,” said Jesus (Mark 10:14, ESV). It is an honor to serve Christ and live out his words through the kid’s club.
