Boys’ Bible Club
On Saturday afternoon, we had our first “Boys’ Bible Club” here at our house. In our neighborhood, there are several groups of boys, roughly 8-14 years old, who hang around together riding bikes, flying kites, playing ball, and whatever else they might decide to do. This is such a crucial age in their lives, and we have a burden to help them however we can. Having three boys who fall (almost) into this age bracket, we decided to start a club once a month to get to know some of these boys, spend some time with him, and hopefully encourage them to live for the Lord.
We invited several boys, and we had eleven come for this first meeting, including our three. Four of these were boys we had just met, so we were especially excited to see them come. Jeremy gave a short lesson from the Bible, and did an object lesson, then they played games for a while in the back yard. We gave them some juice and cookies, and they were on their way.
We were pleased with how things went for this first time, and it seemed that those who came really enjoyed it. We are hoping that they will come back and bring others with them next month.
Please help us pray for this outreach, that we might be a light in our neighborhood and that these boys would grasp the truth of God’s Word!
