The Power During the Hour That You Do Not See!
As the familiar strains of “Joyful Joyful” fill the Sanctuary signaling the start of Hour of Power with Bobby Schuller, the power of God’s Holy Spirit is also at work in other places on the campus of Shepherd’s Grove.
In our Sprouts Children’s Ministry, our nursery and preschool are learning about “The Giant Picnic” – the feeding of the 5000 – through music, video, puppet shows and crafts. They are in a lesson series called “All About Jesus”.
Our kindergarten through 5th-grade children just finished a great, two-week Easter Eggstravaganza and now are in the middle of Zooplosion – an eight-week series of lessons where animals are a part of the Bible story. Kids have fun in our pre-session room and then head into the Zooplosion Theater for music and learning programs. Then, they finish up in their small group application and snack time.
Jesus said that “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me. And whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.” We believe that our most important welcome and our most powerful hour spent is the time when we minister to children – all behind the scenes of the Hour of Power!
