4 years ago the thought of putting together a “VBS like” program for children, 4 years to 5th grade, would have never came in to my mind. I didn’t grow up around babies or even small children for that matter. I didn’t babysit, I didn’t volunteer to hold babies, I didn’t point out babies when I saw them, or anything like it!
When my wife and I had our first son, Jones, all of a sudden something changed. I understood what all the excitement was about! I learned how awesome children are and how much the NEED us!
As God laid GODFIT on my heart I believe he was also warming it up to the idea of turning GODFIT in to a fitness related VBS program for kids.
For the first time in our history as a nation the life expectancy for our children is less than the generation before. Obesity is a major player in this issue and teaching children how important living a healthy active lifestyle if crucial for their development as stewards of God’s Kingdom.
This past month I had the opportunity to pilot the vision of “GODFIT kids’s challenge” with Terrace Lake Community Church in Columbus, IN. 18 families totaling over 60+ individuals participated and learned what it means to COMBINE wellness with their FAITH.
As God continues to develop this idea please pray for the opportunities to TAKE ACTION. [GAL. 5:
