What is Bible Club?
Every Thursday evening (except major holidays) kids from all around Lima come together from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Calvary Bible Church to enjoy Bible lessons, songs, memory verses, and games, as well as some one-on-one time with a Club helper. Kids are picked up by church vans at their house and dropped off when the Club is done. It is a time of education in what God has to say in His Word for us today.
The Calvary Bible Church Bible Club is probably very different from anything you’ve experienced before. There is no rap or other worldly music, and the dress is modest and appropriate. The games are simple and the emphasis is Christ. Kids are counseled one-on-one to make sure they understand their standing with God. Our burden is to share Christ in a way that is consistent with Biblical principles. We have a great time while teaching and learning about Christ.
We believe a child will never be able to leave the Bible Club saying that no one cares for him/her. Our actions demonstrate we love the kids who attend Bible Club. We play games with them, sing with them, and show a general interest in what concerns them. We want to reflect the love of Christ to each child and show them that ultimately God loves them, and that is the most important thing of all.
One of the goals is that everything is to be done with enthusiasm. From cheering our teammates on in the gym, to loud singing, we strive to “ooze” excitement. Mr. Cave, the leader of the Bible Club, is a driving force behind the enthusiasm that we seek to have.
You will not find downcast faces if you attend Bible Club, where the joy of the Lord is our strength. We have the assurance that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and we will live with Him forever in Heaven when we die. This ought to be enough to make anyone happy! We are happy to be serving the Lord in the Bible Club ministry.
