Children's Ministry
Children are the heartbeat of any society. In Kitgum the children have been oppressed for so many years. They don't realize how valuable they are in the sight of the Lord. Oftentimes they are a bargaining chip for bride prices and family disputes. If they are disabled, many times they are abandoned. Others are heads of their houses because they have no parents. They are sick, dirty, hopeless. But that is not who they are in the eyes of the Lord. Jesus says in Luke 17:2 regarding people who hurt children: "It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." If our Lord makes children such a priority, so should we. We know that if we reach a child we can change a community. Our desire is to reach out to the most vulnerable, abused, neglected children and share the love of Jesus with them. Every child is fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of his Creator, with a purpose. It is our prayer and desire that the children in Northern Uganda will find the only true Hope for their souls by coming to salvation in Jesus Christ. In order to see that happen, we teach weekly children’s Bible studies in the villages, spend time with the children in a local orphanage, and work with Calvary Chapel Kitgum to teach the Sunday School. We teach the little ones about how much they mean to Jesus; we help to support them and pray that our efforts will allow the Lord to reach into their hearts and their communities, to change the future of their lives, their families, and their nation. Additionally, we conduct outreaches to children in their communities, and training workshops periodically for church leaders and teachers on how to be a children’s ministry worker.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
