Bible Story Time (B.S.T.) can serve as a warm meeting ground full of character enrichment and the gospel. Only God and His way can really guide our children in a good, moral, and happy way of life while here on earth and beyond.
There are so many philosophies and ideas of men being taught in our schools and in the world today. There is little, if any, of God’s word being planted in children’s minds. A child’s hope in God, that brings strength and LIFE, is often smothered by unbelief and poor examples.
That’s why we have Bible Story Time!!
Since 1976, concerned mothers and fathers have taught good old-fashioned Bible stories in their private homes. Once a week, neighborhood children gather for fun, Gospel, and spiritual enrichment. Sponsored by the Church of God in Carmichael, California, Bible Story Time has been “planting” God’s Word in the hearts of thousands of children over the years.
There have been thousands of children reached in the homes of good families with a vision of how God’s word can make all the difference. Bible Story Time is for children from 2 years to Middle School age, where Bible stories are the subject of our fun time together! Throughout the year we’ll also have special programs and good stuff to take home!
Middle School Ages
Wouldn’t you like your middle school teenage children to hear lessons that will help them as they face the difficult situations and temptations of our day?
Bible lessons are taught, in age-appropriate classes, that encourage them to make good decisions and that promote Christian values, and that prepare them to be a benefit to their families, their schools, and the community.
Middle school students are often ill-prepared for the social and school pressures placed upon them. At a time in their lives when there is a “void” of understanding concerning the changes going on in their bodies and social-consciousness, they are suddenly “uprooted” from the smaller social community of the elementary school they are familiar with and are “thrown” into a middle school environment where everything is new, unfamiliar and “threatening”. They must quickly adjust to: new social pressures, new friends, and a new impersonal method of school that contains schedules of different classes and many teachers. All of this often “alienates” the child and it is no wonder so many lose their proper direction during this time in their life. Having Bible teachers that understand and sincerely care about the welfare of these children is critical to helping to “counter-balance” all the other influences that can overwhelm them.
The Church of God teachers understand that the answer to “keeping the right focus” and not losing direction is by establishing a sure foundation in Jesus Christ. When these children have a personal relationship with Christ, they don’t have to face the middle school pressures alone. The can have a deep-rooted assurance in the love of their heavenly father to keep, direct, and satisfy them.
