I’ve told many people who have asked me about our experience at Redeemer that I love our church. When they ask me why, I have so many reasons I don’t know where to start and usually end up a bit tongue-tied. But one thing I always mention is Redeemer Kids.
I love Redeemer Kids! In thinking how to describe what Redeemer Kids does, I hesitate to call it our “kids program” – that doesn’t do it justice. I prefer to call it our “kids community”. Because it’s so much more than a Sunday morning program for kids. It’s an anchor in the lives of my children; it’s a relationship. It’s a place where my children pray, learn about their Savior and serve God alongside their peers. And, Redeemer Kids is made up of so much more than just the children of our church. It also includes amazing adults who put time, effort and love into my kids. These people aren’t just their “Sunday School teachers” they are their friends. Many of them spend time with our family socially. They are invested. Not just on Sunday morning but all the time. Through the love and faith of such people, my children see Jesus. As a parent, I couldn’t ask for more.
