|Victory Kids singing during Family Night.|
Last night was our Family Night for EBC's Victory Kids. The name comes from 1 Corinthians 15:57, "But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (NKJV). We were hoping for a large turn out from the parents and grandparents of these K-6th graders. We cooked a bunch of hot dogs and made lots of cookies. Unfortunately, there were not a lot of them here last night. Some came out but most did not. The majority of these kids are picked up by one of two church vans that we have. Both of these vans have to make two trips to pick everyone up. We usually have over 80 (K-12th grade) between Victory Kids and our youth group.
God has given us a tremendous opportunity to reach these kids with the Gospel. Pray that we will also connect with their parents. We are starting to see some of them come around but our goal is to see the whole family in a relationship with Christ and serving Him through the local church. Many of these children have just recently starting coming to church and over 80% of them were not here 3 years ago. Go back and read the post about EBC's Future and you will have a better understanding of our need for additional space. To God be the glory for what He continues to do!
