A Word From our Pastor

The School Age Child   Development Center
“Planting   Seeds in Our Future”
We at Union Grove Baptist   Church are grateful to our Lord Jesus Christ for this opportunity to build   lasting experiences with children. Christ demonstrated His love for children   over and over in the Scriptures. He used a child to illustrate the most   important spiritual truth in the New Testament, which is about our attitude in   conversion and toword spiritual growth. He said “Verily   I say unto you, except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall   not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 18:3).

 

Our School Age Child Development Center is a tremendous opportunity to   be a part of God’s hand in shaping a child’s future, as well as ministering to   the whole family. The Scriptures are so plain. “Lo,   children are an heritage of   The LORD; and the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows are   in the hand of a mighty man; so are the children of the youth” (Psalm 127:3-4).

Children are “a heritage”, the   Hebrew word is the word we get the term “heirloom”. A heirloom is usually   something of great monetary value, but the greatest value is what the heirloom   represents. Children represent every aspect of our future. No monetary value   could ever be placed on such an heirloom. 

The other word that is of   great importance in these verses is “arrows”. Arrows are instruments that can be   used for all kinds of purposes. Those purposes are all found in the heart of the   archer that shoots the arrows. The child must be “shot-straight” toward the   right target. We are going to be a part of God’s hand in not only shaping the   future of children, but in “shooting” them toward the right target. Many other things are also a   part of their flight in life, but we desire only God’s best for each   child.

Let’s make a covenant   together to ask our Lord to guide us daily as we are used of Him to shoot the   “arrows” He sends our way, toward the goals He has for   them.   They are our   “heirlooms”.
