The 2016 Spring children programs are now seeds planted in the children`s hearts. For the last three months we held weekly programs for the children in Sighișoara, Daneș and Hoghilag. In the same time, children programs were held in Valea Rece and Gornești by a partnering local church.
Beside the Metro staff, we involved a group of young volunteers to help; most of them came week by week to work with us for the blessing of the little kids. Teo, Andreea, Adi, Claudel, Cătălin, Ștefi, Suzy, Nicu, Darius, Ramona and Paul, from our community, and Cristina, Raluca and Sanda, from Daneș, are deserve appreciation and encouragement for their efforts and dedication.
On this Spring, the main challenge was the weather. The heavy rains and T-storms didn`t allowed us to hold some outdoor programs in villages. Still, the kids were happy to see us each time and even enjoyed more the time we could have with them when the weather was fine.
Some of the topics of this year`s lessons were:
Lead others to Christ
Don`t let others to influence you
God wants to be your Father
Always respect the others
Easter lesson: Jesus is the way to heaven
Live a clean life
Jesus is bigger than your fears
As usual, here are some quick facts about this spring with the SideWalk Sunday School program:
Programs held: 12
Attendance (an average per site; kids, teenagers and adults):
