PLEASE take 3 minutes to watch this insightful clip:
JUST HOW MUCH INFLUENCE DO YOUR CHILDREN RECEIVE?
1 hour a week x 52 weeks = 52 hours in a YEAR!
If the only time a child is hearing about God is in church, 1 out of 168 hours in a week.
If you divide 52 by 24 – you have 2 days and 4 hours of God talk in 365 days of the year.
How can that be effective?!
HillSide is embarking on a Shared Ministry programme:
Where we create an environment that helps the church and parents feel competent and confident to play active parts in their children’s faith formation.
3 WAYS TO DO THIS:
#1 Talk to your child about THEIR faith (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)
#2 Talk to your child about YOUR faith
#3 Serve in your children’s church classroom*
*Obviously this is difficult in these COVID times – but we have come up with some new innovations; partner with us!
Starting on Monday the 8th February we will be sharing whatsapp devotions for our HillKids that we’ll be sending to YOU to listen to with them AND please this is not just for HillKids; we invite you to share it with your family; your nieces, nephews, grandchildren, godchildren, etc, etc.
Every HillSider we have a number for should have received the intro’ on Thursday the 4th February; if you didn’t please let me know ASAP.
And of course if you do not wish to receive these messages – just remove yourself from the SPARK group BUT before you do please consider sharing it with a family you know?
If your child has their own cellphone we will gladly send it to them direct as well – just please whatsapp the dedicated devotion phone their number or email Nicole their details).
