Prospective Teacher's Lunch
March 24th | New Community Church
The Scriptures (Deuteronomy 6; Psalm 78) have impressed upon us the necessity of dealing with children, if we desire to affect any permanent change in the mental or moral condition of the world; for the children of today are the fathers and mothers of the next generation. Dwight Moody must have had an understanding of this principle for it was not long after he came to Chicago that he began to work among the children. His success in recruiting for the Sunday schools was wonderful. On one occasion, he found a little mission Sunday school on the North side and offered to take a class. The superintendent pointed out that they already had almost as many teachers as they did pupils but that if Mr. Moody could get his own pupils, then he would be at liberty to conduct a class. The next Sunday, Mr. Moody appeared with 18 ragamuffins: they were dirty, unkempt, many of them barefoot, but as the young teacher said, "each had a soul to save."
Want to know how to impact the next generation for Jesus Christ? If so, please attend our Prospective Sunday school teacher's meeting. We'll discuss the commitment, the curriculum and the challenges. Set aside Sunday, March 24th for lunch and discussion on these important matters. We will meet in Classroom 100. Please sign up online so that we can plan accordingly.
