I enjoy playing guitar on Sunday mornings and leading the Sunday school children in worship. I started doing this when I first came to the Lord–before our children were born. Now I’m a grandma.
A few weeks ago I began to sense God calling me to take my guitar to the soccer fields on weekends. Why? It’s because there seems to be a strong emphasis on sports activities and many children are missing out on learning about God and the Bible.
I’m getting a team together. We’ll put up our Bible table just as we do on the beach promenade. We’ll tell short Bible stories and sing praises to God. We’ll share the Gospel message and pray with those who have needs or want to come to Christ.
I gave my notice to the Sunday school superintendent, explaining my plans. I agreed to do the music for another month, through the end of August. But who will replace me? Surely God will provide.
Last Sunday as I walked into church carrying my guitar, a man approached. “Are you going to be playing your guitar today?”
“Yes, I lead worship for the children’s Sunday school.”
He said, “That is something I do as well! I’m new in town and I’m hoping to have an opportunity to lead music for the children here. Perhaps we can work together!”
I said, “You won’t believe this, but next Sunday is my last Sunday doing this! Perhaps God sent you to be my replacement!”
We exchanged information. I arranged for him to meet the Sunday school superintendent. He plans to bring his guitar next week so I can introduce him to the children.
I’m believing this is another confirmation that God is behind this new venture. We’ll be in the parks on Saturdays and Sundays, wherever there are games being played. I’ll have to alternate weekends so our evangelism team will be able to worship in church at least every other Sunday. God is good!
