Kid 2.0

February 28, 2008

Last night we had a special class for children who are considering following Christ and being baptized. We called it Kid 2.0 (based on 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.”) I spent about 20 minutes explaining the Gospel in visual form for the children. Parents were also invited and were also present. I fielded some questions from them as well and then we took a little tour.

I took the nine families into the sanctuary and into the dressing room where one goes to be baptized. I explained how everything went down in this room and then we went up into the baptistry. I let each child walk down the steps and look out into the congregation from the baptistry so that they would get a feel of what it would be like. They all enjoyed it.

After the tour, we went back to the classroom where Dr. Estep spoke for about 20 minutes to the parents about the importance of living your faith in front of your children and bringing them up in a Christian home.

Kid 2.0 was a great success and we will look to have another sometime this summer. It’s always rewarding to see children get excited about coming to faith in Christ.
