Dear LCC Children’s Ministry Volunteer,
Thank you for volunteering in the Children’s Ministry at Life Christian Church. We value and treasure your time and resources. As a Children’s Ministry volunteer, you are planting seeds of the gospel in the hearts and minds of children with every song you sing, game you play, and snack you give. Every gospel-centered conversation you have with a little one is bursting with opportunity to be used by God in the life of a child. Parents appreciate your service more than you can even imagine. The ability to attend a church service without distraction and with peace of mind that their child is well taken care of is a gift, and they are very thankful.
The gifts God has given you will be used to touch the lives of our children.
Matthew 19:14 reads, “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’”
Hebrews 6:10 says, “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” God sees your service in Children’s Ministry. May God bless you for your love and service.
In His love,
