Also, in case you are checking in how things went, we had 210 kids in attendance and raised $34.00 so far for BWPCC. I am sure more will be coming in tomorrow night! Hope to see you there.
The table you see before you is to entice you to become weekly or monthly volunteers of Anchor Children's Ministry. So be sure to sign up as we have A LOT of spaces available for you to make a difference in the life of children and impact them for God!

So give me a call, stop by the Church, or email me.
"If a man has recently married, he must not be sent to war or have any other duty laid on him. For one year he is to be free to stay at home and bring happiness to the wife he has married." (24:5)
How great would that be! Only having one responsibility for a whole year: your family! When Pastor Phil spoke about this issue back on June 17, he used that phrase, "Dad's...PASTOR your families."
Care for them, offer input and advice, pray for them, organize activities for them, teach them, etc. Specifically, simply tell your kids something everyday about your walk with Christ. Of course, that assumes YOU ARE following Christ.
The song "A Few Good Men" by the Gaither Vocal Band is a wonderful testament to what is needed. Here is small taste:

This is a commercial from Apple several years ago, long before the iPod and the new iPhone. It was when they were running their "Think Different" campaign. Check it out...
I think more often than not, we simply rest on our laurels, maintain the status quo, go along in life and not really ponder what kind of difference we can make. Let me share a brief verse with you: "His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires." (2 Peter 1:3-4)
We have, as believers in Christ, the VERY POWER that exists within God Himself! Now, I do not mean we are in some new age way "a god," but with the Holy Spirit living inside us we can and should in a very real sense CHANGE THE WORLD! So, what will your first step be?

Check out the link to see the preview of what it will be all about. I have a feeling this show will be a big hit! Of course some are calling it wrong with the potential to do more harm than good. At the very least it gives us and idea of how society views kids.
Then, at the same time, you have this little survey. The Pew Research Company conducted the survey (Click Here for their website). Strange how to seeminly opposite things can exist at the same time? (There is a technical name for this, I just can't think of it at the moment.)
So how important are kids to you? Do you look for opportuniteis to teach and learn from them? Do you look for ways to leave a legacy in their lives? The thing is...kids are learning something from somewhere. I would like to be a GOOD influence on them, instead of having someone else be a BAD one. As CM Volunteers, you are in a position to influence the lives of kids and families, so reach out and change the life of at least one.
