Our prayer is to build a foundation of truth in our children's lives. We believe that our children can shake the future! They are immensely valuable and precious to God. Jesus said, "Whoever receives this child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who send me; for he who is least among you all is the one who is great" (Luke 9:48) Jesus loved children. In Mark we read that "Jesus took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands upon them" (Mark 10:16). If we love kids like God loves kids, then we will bless, feed, and care for them. It is an awesome privilege to this because we are coming in line with the God's heart for children everywhere. It is also a sobering responsibility because, "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 cause one of these little ones to stumble" (Luke 17:2)
We desire that Normandy Kids will be a place where our kids can come and celebrate the goodness of our God. We hope and pray that each child will encounter God through scripture memory, bible stories, worship, prayer and the weekly interactions with his/her teacher. Our desire is to create an atmosphere that is fun, joyful, welcoming and glorifying to the Lord. We are really excited about all that the Lord will do as we pour our time, resources, energy and heart into the next generation. We know that when we "Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). Lets live in a way that the next generation will know Jesus even more than we do.
