It was so awesome being the Bible Teacher at a 4-week Church Basketball Outreach. Parents from all over the city send their kids to learn how to play basketball, and since the Basketball program is run by a Church, it’s understood that the kids will get a 15-minute Bible lesson each time.
This is an outstanding opportunity to reach unchurched kids and their families every week!
Every Saturday I had 15 minutes to share with three different age groups. First the youngest kids. The next hour the Intermediate girls, and then the next hour the Intermediate boys.
Between the 3 age groups, more than 150 kids and adults heard a Bible Message every weekend! Praise God!!!
How do you keep the attention of a gaggle of kids who are bursting with excitement and want to run and play Basketball rather than sit and listen? Well, God has made us very visually oriented. We retain information better when we hear it AND SEE IT. That’s why I love love love teaching with the paint board!
I split the paint message up to 4 15-minute segments, and taught one segment each week. The message came from Jesus interacting with Nicodemus in John, Chapter 3.
Here are some photos from the four weeks. Please feel free to click on them to enlarge them.
We love you and thank Jesus for you!
Thank you so much for your prayers, financial support, and notes of encouragement, without which we would not be able to reach the Lost for Jesus Christ!
Please contact us anytime and let us know how we can pray for you!
And please feel free to forward this to anyone you think would be blessed by it!
