That's the question that comes up most. Our name comes from Proverbs 22:6 which says: "Train up a child in the way he should go;and when he is old he will not depart from it. The goal is simply to do just that. We train children in godly values. Sometimes we take them to church. Other times we take the church to them, meaning we do Bible study in their homes with their parent's permission. Or, we have activities on streets on use games like basketball to help other kids learn about God. Other kids may participate by taking lessons online with their parent's permission. Parents must be present. Prizes are mailed. To sign up for any of these programs, call 1-318-623-2466.
How it works
First kids get a 10 minute Bible lesson on issues that affect their daily lives. Then they get to ask questions. afterwards they are rewarded with snacks when they show they've learned something.
It's all completely free and Kids love it. Any child in grades 1 through 12 can participate. So far there are programs in Natchitoches, Campti, Louisiana, Many, Louisiana and Shreveport, a city of 230,000 and the first city we've served. But we are praying to reach many more.
22:6 is a ministry that submits to God's daily leadership and guidance. Christian adults donate their time because they love God and love children and want kids to learn God's Word. Churches such as First Baptist, Second Street, First Baptist North, King's Chapel and many other churches all over, plus a bunch of volunteers make this happen for children who appreciate the lessons and of course, the fun. Pray for the program to reach more children everywhere in the world God sends us.
