As God’s people, we have so many reasons to praise Him. The challenges we have faced this year serve as a powerful reminder that all things are under His sovereign control. The Lord continues to provide for His church and give us the joy of preaching His Word to a world searching for the truth. From the hundreds of new members who have joined our church family this year, to the hundreds of thousands who join us online, the Lord has blessed 2020 in ways we could not have imagined.
One of these unexpected blessings has been expanded interest in our ministry to children. Our Adventure Club materials are nearly complete, and we have launched a new video streaming service to support the Generations of Grace curriculum. Adventures with Ranger Joe is viewed by families worldwide, and development is currently underway on additional video resources to provide sound biblical teaching for children of all ages. We are also reworking and improving our Parenting for Life materials.
One remaining task is to update our Sunday School curriculum. Generations of Grace has been in place for a decade; this update will incorporate the insights gathered over those years. The work will take approximately eighteen months, with an estimated cost of $120,000. This is an investment in future generations of our own church family, as well as the 3,000 other churches currently using the curriculum to teach their children the precious truths of God’s Word.
I am so thankful for your willingness to give in support of this vital ministry to the next generation and beyond. It is our prayer that this Thanksgiving season will serve as an encouraging reminder to you of God’s faithfulness to His people.
Love in the Truth,
John and Patricia
