From Our Children's Minister

Fall is here! Like the changing of the leaves, our children’s department is changing and growing. We have had many new faces and families visiting and becoming a part of our family here at Royston Baptist. If you haven’t noticed, we seem to be in a baby boom, so we have needed to purchase a new crib and we are thinking we may need more. Donations are always welcome to help with these new purchases! 

New curriculum for fall is also present in the children’s department. We are excited to be using “The Gospel Project” in all our Sunday school classrooms now. “The Gospel Project” is a three year chronological study of the Bible from beginning to end. Thanks to generous donations, we were able to install TV’s and DVD players in our classrooms for the video portion of the study. The kids love the videos! We invite parents to get to know what their children are learning by bringing “the Gospel Project” to their dinner table conversation, before bedtime discussions, or anytime. There are parent resources available on the website www.gospelproject.com or see your child’s/children’s Sunday school teacher for more information.

Wednesday nights are also new and hopping! We are as proud of our mission based projects and curriculum as we are of the kids participating! Our Mission Friends, led by two wonderful ladies, along with our CIA’s (Children in Action) have taken virtual trips to San Diego and Cambodia so far and they are just getting started! CIA’s have teamed up with the youth for a once a month backyard bible study with the kids at the Royston Housing Authority’s after-school program. Our Wednesday night kids have collected cans for the Rainbow Pantry and are now collecting coats for the homeless shelter and DVD’s for Hart Haven Women’s shelter! There are bins in the Children’s hall if you have donations of coats or DVD’s.

The Children have also teamed up with the youth to work on a wonderful Christmas musical. Practice for the Christmas musical is going well thanks to all the support we have from volunteers and parents. We will be presenting the musical to the church this December. All our church family and friends are invited to attend. You will be blessed! It is an amazing time to be at Royston Baptist Church, but don’t take my word for it! I encourage you to take a stroll through the Children’s hall anytime and see for yourself!

Thank you for all your support!
