Today I was blessed with the opportunity to volunteer in several of the children's groups in the Bible Study Fellowship class Avery and I attend in Memphis. Let me share a bit about my morning. I started with playtime with the toddler class (I think these are late ones / early twos). Their schedule for the morning included playtime, story time, hymn time, snack time, etc. This class ended up being small, so they moved me over to the two year olds (not Avery's class though). Here I joined with them singing Trust and Obey, hearing a story time about Paul and Silas, marching with instruments, praying for and enjoying snacks, and learing about the gift of Jesus. I LOVED experiencing some of what Avery's class would be like. This is way more than a nursery. There are wonderful seeds being planted in these hearts. As we took these kids to the bigger play room, I moved over to help with the littlest babies. Unfortunately, I just missed their story time, but I enjoyed playing with these babies knowing how they were loved and prayed over in this room. I am so grateful for the amazing leaders who dedicate their time to all of these precious children.
If you are interested, you can find out more about Bible Study Fellowship here and locate a class here. This year we are involved in the study of Isaiah. Avery and I drive over and hour to Memphis to attend our class, so it is well worth it.
