SHADE FOR OUR CHILDREN

The question that faces Christian parents and grandparents today is whether we can plant some trees that will shade future generations from what may well be the blistering heat of anti-Christian values in an anti-Christian world.

Why do we have a Grandparents’ Day of Prayer?

God has given grandparents a sacred trust, to imprint another generation with his love and faithfulness.

The prayers and godly influences from grandparents will make a great impact in your grandchildren’s spiritual growth.

As long as we are obedient in what God gives us, even when we make mistakes, His promises are sure and “will” be accomplished. That is the great hope that we are able to pass down to our children AND grandchildren.

Evangelizing Children

Giving the Gospel to Your Children

Every truth in Scripture ultimately points to God. And therefore none of it is out of place in evangelistic contexts. One could accurately say, then, that parents who want to be thorough in evangelizing their children need to teach them the whole counsel of God, taking care to show the gospel ramifications in all that truth.
