Catalyst 2.0 Prayer Guide : Heaven is Like This by Charlie and Loretta Hughes

Heaven is Like This!  

by Charlie & Loretta Hughes  

Matthew 19:14:  Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”   

Teaching 4 and 5 year olds in Sunday school is a joyful and fulfilling experience. Each Sunday morning these precious children bring enthusiasm, curiosity, boundless energy and an eagerness to learn about God.   

Because of the generous support of the Catalyst Fund our task of teaching has been enriched by the provision of an outstanding Bible based curriculum that includes colorful posters for each unit’s memory verse, an engaging wall mural with weekly add-ons that challenges the children to remember each Bible story for the 13 week quarter, and age appropriate hands-on activities that aid their remembering and applying the lesson. The Bible story is in booklet form that is sent home each week.   

The Catalyst Fund has provided a resource room stocked with an amazing supply of materials such as glue sticks, construction paper, craft sticks, yarn, markers, crayons and much more. Knowing all these materials are available to use with the children has made it possible for us to focus on lesson preparation.   

Feedback from our students’ parents has affirmed that their children are growing in Bible knowledge, in understanding of how to have Jesus in their lives, and in living out each day, the principles Jesus taught.   

Finally, having Gwen Phillips to provide leadership, co-ordination and encouragement to the children’s program has been a blessing to the teachers, the children, their parents and our whole faith community.      

Teaching our children about God is a wonderful yet challenging opportunity.  If you have those gifts, consider volunteering with our children’s or student ministries.
