Review: Let The Little Children Come

One of my alter egos gets to try to keep a small group of 7-12 yos entertained, or at least contained, and occasionally get in a few deep and meaningful discussions and biblical lessons snuck in after church every week or two. It adds variety and spice to an otherwise dull and monotonous maddeningly stressful and chaotic existence. Aside from frequent mention of poop and two front teeth (usually not in the same sentence), it's a pretty fun little group.
He said freely, freely
You have received
Freely, freely give.
Go in My name
And because you believe
Others will know that I live.
This last week's lesson was about Jesus sending his disciples out two by two, no change of clothes (ewww), but simply the power to preach and heal and cast out demons. And the takeaway was that God always gives us the power to do what He asks of us, and we simply need to be willing to go in His name.
All power is given in Jesus' name
In earth and heaven in Jesus' name,
And in Jesus' name I come to you
To share His power as He told me to.
So we wrapped up with prayer (for safety of parents and hippos and other such things) and headed into the kids' favorite part of the program: free time. And I brought out my Let The Little Children Come sample pack and laid the contents on the table to see what their response would be. Would it be enough to distract them from their favorite activity of hurling themselves into the giant brown beanbag?

It was. I watched as one would figure out how the FlipAbout or the Animated Tracts worked and share them with another. One 7yo girl was drawn to the salvation bracelets, and I talked through what each color represented with her - a simple and beautiful story of salvation.

Mom’s Review:

Focus. These tools all point to the message of salvation, with no complicated doctrines to distract from this simple message.

Simple to Understand and Share. All of these items were easy for kids to share with other kids. There were items for the non-readers to share, like the bracelets and the Gospel Buttons FlipAbout. This is a great way to help kids see how simple it is to help spread the gospel message.

Novelty. These weren't just simple little books; they had something interesting going on to grab a kid's attention and make sharing easy! The favorites in our group were the Animated Tracts and the FlipAbouts - these were new to most of them. While the FlipAbouts were a little challenging for the youngest, they were most interesting to the older ones.

I like the sample pack so one can get an idea of what products would appeal most and which are most useful for a specific group in terms of age and message. Some of the topics were better suited for our group so I would be much more likely to order those specific items in bulk.

Who says God can't use kids to spread the Good News?! Let's equip them with great tools and see His power revealed!
