Equip Grandparents & Parents to Know & Hand Down a Joy Like No Other

One of the most important things you will do as a person who serves in and leads a Children's Ministry is for you to equip and encourage grandparents and parents to hand down the faith. Especially now as with social distancing, you are not able to physically meet with children to help them learn to know, love, talk and walk with God. It is always essential for you to equip the grandparents and parents to do this.

So, today to help you help them I am happy to share with you a post from Grandmas with Heart - please read this and share it with the grandparents and parents in your church.

This quote is something we know to be absolutely true - our grandchildren fill our hearts with so much joy. When we see their smiles, we experience joy. When we hear them call out to us, we experience joy. When they make the choice to believe in God, we experience joy. When we are able to watch them grown in their walk with God, we experience joy.

But, joy is not a "one-way street", because as grandmas - and grandpas - we are able to help our grandchildren experience joy as well. In John 16:24 we read . . .

Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
When we teach them to be people who pray, we are giving our grandchildren the greatest opportunity to experience a full measure of joy. As they pray, and see God answer, they will know a joy like no other, so let your grandchildren see and hear you pray.
