This past week at COTHA we learned that the way we worship shapes what we believe!
Romans 12:1 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”
LiL’ Kids learn at COTHA that they are created by God for God. God created each of us very special for His very special purposes. God speaks to us through the Bible. The more time we spend reading or listening to God’s word the more Truth grows in our hearts. There is awe, and wonder in the presence of God. Watching young children worship is a true gift and an example for me each week. They are most often unhindered from social etiquette and not so concerned with themselves or those around when they are worshipping through singing, listening to a story, praying, or dancing. Each week it is a blessing to worship with one and two year olds ringing bells and singing to Jesus or three and four year olds wondering about the stories of Jesus and praying with childlike faith! As our we grow in the knowledge and love of our Lord Jesus we not only increase in faith, but who we are is shaped into Christ-likeness for His glory.
LiL’ Kids need love, security, and meaning from God and from their COTHA family as they grow to be the next generation of worshippers in the Kingdom of God sharing Jesus and their lives with a fallen and broken world. Just in case you didn’t already know it, our kids in the LiL’ Kids Ministry are amazing!
