Kids On Mission
KIDS ON MISSION - FISHERKIDS MISSION CLUB
Children's Center Adventure Room
Wednesday 6:15 - 7:00 P.M.
Welcome to KIDS ON MISSION called, "Fisherkids." We invite you to get on mission in serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Jesus said in (Mark 1:17), "Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men (kids)." Our goal on Wednesday evening is to help boys and girls see the world as God sees it, resulting in a geniune desire to share their faith with their friends and neighbors; it's Kids On Mission - Kids Reaching Kids!
Our Mission: Serve Jesus by Serving Others
We desire for the children to develope a Biblical Worldview. Simply put, there is a living God, and He has revealed himself in Scripture. Therefore as Christians, we believe that we can find absolute truth from the Bible, regardless of what is politically correct, regardless of what we feel is right or not right. We base our beliefs on what the Bible teaches. From this Worldview we teach children to be a missionary everyday, encouraging them to tell their friends that Jesus is the way for salvation and eternal life. Our witness as a Christian is so important because our Lord is returning soon. There is no time to lose in sharing the good news of the Gospel of Christ with others.
Therefore, our mission training centers around real life lessons in culture and customs of the country. We introduce kids to today’s missionaries and discuss their joys, blessings, frustrations and hardships by receiving current information from our International Mission Board “Kids on Mission" program. Also, we incorporate stories of mission heros from the past who have been the faith builders of all who entered the mission fields after them. Using storytelling with "cliffhangers", pictures and artifacts from foreign countries, games and challenges, along with “Fun Work” take home papers for review and rewards, allow us to immerse kids in the mission experience.
We will be posting our FunWork archives below so parents can follow summaries of the stories and lessons. Parent interest and involvement is a valuable way to help children become compassionate for missions. You can read the FunWork Archives and follow the story your children have been hearing on Wednesday nights.
What is the most important, greatest thing to ever happen to you? Answer, when you got saved, by far. What then is the most important thing you can do for anyone else. Lead them to Christ and they get saved for eternity. NOTHING COMPARES
This question has been asked in scores of churches. How many were saved seeing a sign "Jesus Saves?" No one. How many were saved seeing the poster at foot ball games "John 3:16." No one? How many were saved listening to a sermon on radio? Maybe one of two. How many were saved through a TV preacher or program. Maybe a few. How many were saved through a person witnessing to you or a person preaching. Some person comes to your mind. Usually 95% to 99% raise their hands. That's it. God uses people.
Witnessing is not the great debate. Please understand and believe this. You don't talk people into being saved. God must convict and convert them. We are just a messenger of GOOD NEWS. "The Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged," argues 2 Tim. 2:24. That takes the monkey off our backs.
Our job is not to "win the world" to Christ but to "PREACH THE GOSPEL to every creature" Mk. 16:15. We are not to share "our faith." We are to share the gospel, the good news. This is crucial to become a soul-winner. People get the idea I have to share my faith and defend all the doctrines of our church or the Bible. No, a thousand time no. We are to share the gospel, "for the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation." What a difference that makes when you understand it.
