Stories of Faith

(This post was written by Gina McClain, Director of Children’s Ministries)

This month we are focusing our Elementary kids on the concept of Faith.  Trusting in what you can’t see because of what you can see.

That’s simple definition for one of the hardest things to maintain in life… faith.  There are so many times in my life where I identify most with the father in Mark 9 speaking to Jesus,

“I do believe!  Help me overcome my unbelief.”

Though I believe I serve an all-powerful, all-knowing God.  I can struggle with exercising that belief through my actions.  Especially when God is asking me to trust in ways I don’t fully understand. 

This month we’re challenging parents to sit down together and write out their child’s faith story.  As we gather these faith stories, we may post a few here on the blog for others to read and be encouraged.  I look forward to doing this exercise with my kids. 

To help them recognize how God is actively shaping their faith today. 

To help them see that we serve a God at work and not sitting dormant in an unknown realm waiting for us to join Him. 

To help them connect with the things they do see and challenge them to trust in what they can’t see… yet. 

We want to hear your faith story.  How has He or is He moving through your circumstances to deepen your faith?  Using 400 words or less, tell us your story.  Email Gina McClain at [email protected].
