Bailee Gentry, a 2nd grader and daughter of our chief nursery attendant, Meghan Wright-Gentry, got permission to begin a Kids For Christ club at Sheridan Elementary School which meets during the second recess on Fridays at her school. Bailee was elected president of the club, which is led by children. Over 20 children have signed up to participate. Isaiah the prophet foresaw a day in which “…a little child shall lead them. (Is. 9:6).

Two children and two college students serving our Lord Jesus and making a difference in the lives of others. I am inspired and challenged by their service to the Lord. And I am sure yours is as well. What can we also do to know Him and make Him known to others?
