Recently I have been helping in Main Event in Studio B, the Kids Church at the River at Tampa Bay. The services are filled with loud, exciting music, fun-filled games, and powerful teaching. This past Sunday, the church gave away school supplies –notebooks, pencils, and folders –to every child in attendance that Sunday. Because the River Outreach Department thoroughly advertized the give-away, many first time visitors rode to the church on the church buses and brought their children with them.
The line for registration was packed! Inside Studio B, the kids played games and listened with rapt attention as the simple message of the gospel was presented. In response to the teaching, over one hundred children came forward to the altar to give their life to Christ. It was incredible to see the change on their faces as they prayed. The sweet presence of Jesus was so strong; I was personally impacted and challenged by the sermon and the anointing that was present throughout the entire service. Helping in Studio B is more than just supervising an auditorium filled with children; every Sunday, I get the opportunity to make an impact and sow into the kids that attend each Sunday –and each Sunday I get challenged to rise to the next level and seek God more.
