This Sunday we will celebrate 10 years of Timothy Team!

Ten years of “Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions” through intensive discipleship, prayer and Bible study. We began with just first through fifth graders, then added adults, then the youth, and now preschool as well!

All generations are invited to study the Word of God together. This is what researcher George Barna says is the best way to promote real transformation that sticks – when children, parents, and grandparents study the same things from the Word of God together.

This helps us live out the commands of Deuteronomy 6: 6 ‐ 7 , “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”

Barna reminds us that a child’s spiritual and moral compass is set by age nine!

We should not wait until ages 12 and beyond to teach them the essentials of the faith. It must be sown into them early and often, knowing that our example is the most important tool!

Are YOU personally sharing the Gospel and the Word of God with your children? Are you intentionally leading them to know and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Are you discipling them? This is YOUR most important responsibility before the LORD after your own commitment to Him. It cannot be delegated to another. Heritage Church is here to assist you, but we cannot take your place.

Come Sunday as our Timothy Team kids share some of their favorite songs and their ABC memory verses!

They will share at the END of the 8:05 service, before the offering at the 9:30 service and at the BEGINNING of the 11 a.m. service so everyone will be blessed. We will wrap up our series in The Book of Acts: Church on Fire – Spreading the Fire!

See you Sunday at the Transformation Place!
