During this Wild Wild West series, I hope you were able to follow the adventures of Ted and Will with us. They were two city slickers that wanted to be authentic cowboys. They learned a lot at the dude ranch about being a cowboy, but it wasn’t easy for them. They learned through the “school of hard knocks”. It sure would have been easier if they had been raised by authentic cowboys and began developing cowboy skills as children. It would have been helpful had they learned to be “wranglers” (the young cowboy on the cattle drives that primarily took care of the horses) before they attempted to be cowboys.
Many of us as adults have struggled with living out the reality of being authentic Christians as we are being transformed into the image of Christ, mainly because many of us didn’t have the joy and privilege of being raised in a godly family and trained in the ways of the Lord. Now, we are getting it, but often we too are learning things through the school of hard knocks.
We don’t want this for our children and the children of Believers Church. We want to train these little cowboys and cowgirls, these wranglers, in the ways of the Lord while they are young.
Therefore, we put a high value on our children here at Believers Church.
Join us Sunday at 9 or 11 a.m. for an exciting Family Worship Sunday. We will welcome our Believing Kids into the sanctuary, take communion together as families and also this is an exciting day as we will make our commitments to the Build a Child; Build a Church campaign!
