Kids Club and Teen Club
Most French families have no concept of vacation Bible school or Sunday school but they value the importance of traditional values and well disciplined children. They are aware that their culture is changing but they want their children to behave with respect, courage and compassion.
We have set up monthly clubs for kids and for teens that promote these values. Each month there is a focus on one specific value demonstrated in the life of a Biblical character. David is a great example of a biblical hero who demonstrates courage and the life of Joseph shows tremendous perseverance and forgiveness. In addition to teaching the Bible story which we help the kids apply to their lives, we play games, do an activity and eat a delicious tea. The clubs have been well received and a number of our English students have attended as well as some other friends.
Please pray that more kids will come and that they will never forget the message that they hear. We emphasize that it is only possible to behave well when we receive help from God. May they seek him!
