Young Minds & Big Topics

By Elaine, Outreach Worker in Flemingdon Park


We recently did a recap of our Bible lessons in Exodus and Leviticus with the kids at KIC (Kids in Community). We’ve been working through the Old Testament since September of last year. At times, when we reflect on our lessons we wonder, “How much did they really get from that lesson? Are we teaching effectively? How are their lives being transformed by His Word?” To our delight, we see glimpses of God working in their hearts. We have noticed that the kids are building on their understanding of who God is, His character, how this all points to the Gospel and what it means for us. During one Bible lesson, I posed these questions to the kids after our review and one of them wrote this for their response.

What did you learn about God in Exodus and Leviticus?
God is forgiving and trying to bring the Israelites close to Him. 

Why does it matter to you?
We need to know God is forgiving and is willing to get close to us.

Even just one child learning more about God is so encouraging! As we wrestle with big topics like God’s holiness, our sin, and the Gospel, would you pray that God would give both leaders and kids understanding to know Him more? Pray that these young minds will have big hearts that delight in His Word always.

“But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” Psalm 1:2-3
