Catching a Child’s Heart
Oakridge Neighborhood Fishing is Fun
NOTES
Saturday, May 31 | 9:00AM–Noon Sunday, April 27, 2008 | Pastor Mike Rose
By Joe Lightfoot, Pastor of Adult Ministries Living Here in Light of There
“I’m Eagerly Anticipating the Return of Jesus” Phil. 3:20–21
When God instructed parents to “train up children according
to how He has individually created and gifted them,” (Proverbs
22:6), I do not believe He had this method in mind…

A more positive way to impact a number of local children—to


catch a child’s heart—is through assisting with the Oakridge
Neighborhood Fishing is Fun outreach on Saturday, May 31,
from 9:00AM to noon. In this first Takin’ it to the Streets event we
will be taking children from the Oakridge neighborhood fishing
at Water Works Park.
This is an ideal way to show the children of Oakridge (60%
of the low income residents here are children) the love of Jesus
through an activity He used to catch people for God’s eternal
kingdom. You can help kids experience the fun of fishing. In the
process you will have an opportunity to share what Jesus means
to you through both your words and actions. This is what Takin’
it to the Streets is all about!
To participate, a fishing license and a church background
check are required. To make all of this happen so you can take
part in this great ministry event, you can check the box on the
Care & Communication Card, sign up at the table in the foyer,
or call Sherri Stufflebeem in the Children’s Ministry Office at
255.2122.
