I know that you are taking time to read this article because of your love for children. Let me tell you about the JOY Club Youth Ministry that is sponsored through Baptist Church Planters. Our goal is to reach families for Christ and bring them into the local Baptist church to be taught in the Word and trained to serve. What better way to reach that goal than to start with children? It is obvious in Scripture (Matthew 19:14) that Jesus loves children and wants us to reach out to them as He did.
JOY Club offers “club-time” for the 4 year old preschooler through those children in the 6th grade. The younger children are known as the “LAMBS” and the older boys and girls are a part of the “LIVING LIGHTS” program.
Our desire is to present the Gospel to boys and girls and seek to lead them to the Savior. They are introduced to Him through the Bible lesson, through the memorization of Bible verses, through working in their handbooks and through opportunities that the leaders have throughout the club time.
