Scripture:

Mark 9:1, 37 NIV

Observation:

Welcoming children into the church means we welcome the movement of God through the Holy Spirit.

Application:

Let’s roll out the red carpet for children, their parents, and their grandparents through support of our children’s ministries and youth ministries. It’s a top priority in God’s kingdom, so the same goes for First United Methodist Church.

Prayer:

Lord, may we welcome the children among us to protect, nurture, and raise them as followers of Christ. In your name we pray. Amen.
