It is summer time in the city.

Summer is the time for VBS and/or Kid's Crusades. This week we enjoyed the children's ministry of Pastor Mark from Leesburg as he led our annual Kid's Crusade.

Wow! Can kid's ever wiggle, laugh, and get excited!

What is a Kid's Crusade?

For us it is an opportunity to reach boys and girls for Christ through specially designed and planned ministry just for them. It is fun, exciting, entertaining, spiritual, life changing, and actually touches the whole family.

I loved seeing our boys and girls singing, learning Scripture, growing in the knowledge of the Lord, and most of all make commitments to serve Christ. Kid's Crusades are powerful outreach programs that can make a difference in life.

Recently Wanda shared a thought she had read in her personal devotions. Someone asked what could be done to stop crime in England. The response was to get children in Sunday School. Learning about Christ could transform a generation. This happens through proactive, intentional efforts through many and various forms. Sunday School is a great one and so is a Kid's Crusade.

I think the most important thing that can change lives is for moms and dads to faithfully lead their families in a way that honors Christ. Just think what would happen in Jacksonville if every home was a truly christian home.

Can children have a truly meaningful life changing experience with Christ? Yes! I accepted Christ into my heart when I was around six or so. I remember it like it was yesterday. Jesus changed my life.

I loved watching our kids worship the Lord and enjoy the crusade this week. Lives were changed for eternity. That is all that matters.
