As a child of the 70’s I can tell you that back in my day, life was good. From my grandma’s house I could walk to the gas station down the block and buy a cold soft drink, a bag of chips and a candy bar for fifty cents. Another block away, I could catch a movie for a buck. And if I was really lucky, I could even talk the theater owner into giving me the movie poster displayed out front when the show was over.
Talk about the good old days! I had cheap snacks, discount movies and free posters all within walking distance. When you’re kid growing up in a small midwest town, it doesn’t get much better than that.
I guess we all have our version of the good old days, don’t we? How about you? You ever find yourself wishing things could be as good as they used to be?
It’s easy to get stuck in the past, but here at Southland we actually believe that our best days are yet to come, especially those of us who serve in the Big Picture Show Children’s Ministry
. Why? Because we have a front row seat of what God’s up to in the next generation, and we’re inviting you to join us.
I don’t know what church was like for you as a kid, but in the Big Picture Show, it’s never boring. It’s a blast! Each Sunday we bring the Bible to life for kids by unpacking serious truth in a seriously fun way. And best of all, our leaders get to watch God change kids’ lives through them.
So come help shape the future by leading a children’s small group, rocking a baby or even welcoming families at the door. Who knows? Some day when our kids are as old as I am, maybe they’ll say, “Back in my day, there was an amazing volunteer who showed me how much God loved me and it changed my life forever.”
Don’t be stuck in the past. Invest in the future with God’s kids. The best is yet to come!
