Last Saturday, we had the privilege of serving as the worship and leadership team for The Light Kids Conference in Marion,IL. The Light, a one day discipleship event for children in first – fifth grades, incorporates music, worship, recreation, fun Bible studies and lessons all centered around a theme. This year’s theme was The Heat Is On. The stories included Moses and the Burning Bush (The Call); Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego and the Fiery Furnace (Stand Tall) and the fire of God’s spirit that leads us and rests in us (Your All).
We are grateful to Aldersgate UMC for hosting the event. There were 175 children and children’s ministry leaders in attendance! The Bible Buzz time was led by Haley Hauseman. The Harvest Team for the weekend was Tyler Lynn (drums), Ben Sanborn (bass), Chase Weber (guitar), Kim Przybylski (vocals); Katie Murbarger (media), Brian Donelson (sound), and James Deming (drama).
Suzanne Price, Christine Fuesz, Millie Fuesz, Chayne Morrison and Rachel Gunn also all helped with the event. And a big thank you to Debbie Randoll who is the Children’s Ministry Director at Aldersgate. She led the Children’s Ministry Network time during the day.
Toward the end of the day, we invited kids who wanted to answer the call, stand tall and give their all to pray! Many of them did and many came forward to pray at the altar! We’re praying for their lives as they live seeking to follow Christ.
There are still two more kids conferences around Illinois for March 2012! You’re invited to attend. www.kidsconference.org
