The PTC Children and Youth Discipleship Hour opened in the new year with six classes from preschool to high school. Each class uses Gospel Project, a Christ-centered, chronological Bible study, Genesis thru Revelation, using a 3-year plan. Twenty adults have been involved in this ministry over the months, many weekly, others as needs arise.

I am reminded of the craftsmen involved in the building of the temple. A significant verse is Exodus 36:2. Moses summoned “every skilled person to whom the Lord had given ability and who was willing to come and do the work.” Likewise, our children and youth workers are dependent on God for the gifts needed for this ministry, and they are willing. We are thankful for each one, and for the children and youth entrusted to our care and teaching each week.
