Hanover Baptist Church Events

Archive for July 19th, 2011

This afternoon was the last of the three Tuesday gatherings ( July 5th, 12th & 19th) hosted by Kirsten Lowe. She invited all young ladies and mothers from Hanover and the surrounding community for a time of fellowship and encouragement.

Kirsten’s words: “My desire for the girls’ group was a time for Christian girls and their mothers to come together, fellowship, be encouraged and draw closer to the Lord. Although I felt  ill-equipped and nervous about this task, the Lord gave me just the right topics. As I dug into the Word to prepare for the lessons God spoke to me in a mighty way. The topics we discussed were personal devotions, prayer, and gossip. Come to find out, God used what He had taught me to challenge the girls and mothers.”

Tuesday, 19 July – Friday, 22 July / 9:00 – 10:30 AM, for children 6 – 10 years of age. Coordinated by Kirsten Lowe.

When Pastor Crookshank mentioned that I could coordinate the Backyard Bible Club (BBC) my first thought was, “Aaaah—coordinator, that sounds scary!” Truthfully, I’m not sure the feeling ever fully left me. Even though it was a slightly daunting task I had such marvelous volunteers who encouraged me along the way, and the Lord orchestrated everything better than I could have imagined.

Each day BBC began with singing, lead by Mrs. Lisa Pizana. Then there was a Bible lesson (the week’s theme was “The Call of God”), which I taught. Next, Mrs. Christine Nerney creatively taught a memory verse. Game time followed with teens Zach Lowe and Matt Pizana. The kids really seemed to enjoy the time to release their pent-up energy. Then everyone cooled down while we listened to a story with Mr. Loren Land and his puppet friends. We concluded with a few more songs.

It was such an awesome blessing to me to be able to teach the children about the call of God. For some of the children, this was their first time hearing about Jesus’ love and the home they can have in heaven. It was an honor for me to be able to share the Good News of the Gospel with them.
