Children’s Ministry: Spending Time With God

Westa.org welcomes a new contributor: The Children’s Ministry!  Join us as we share inspiration for you and your little ones to help keep them fortified in the Lord.

Before you go to school each day, remember to keep Jesus first! Start each day with a “Good Morning Jesus!” and remember to spend time with God. Also, read your Bible every day! Reading God’s Word will help you to grow into a strong Christian full of power, strength, joy, and peace.

Jesus, Our Example

Throughout Scripture, we see that Jesus spent a lot of time in prayer with the Father. Regularly, after He

Spend time with God daily.

performed miracles and healings, Jesus would separate Himself from the crowd and spend time with God in prayer.

Jesus knew that His purpose was:

  1. To glorify God
  2. To destroy the works of the devil
  3. To bring good news to the people

And guess what? You have the same purpose! God created you to glorify Him, to spend time with Him, and to share the good news of salvation with others. Although everyone has the same task, God has a special way for each of us to fulfill the task.

To God, In Prayer

Do you know how God wants to use you in His Kingdom? To answer this question, you must spend time with Him to know what He desires. Spend time with God by praying, reading the Bible, and singing praise and worship songs to His glory. As you spend time with Him, He will let you know what it is He has planned for you. Pray to ask God to help you to spend time with Him.

Let us pray:

 “Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me. Thank You for being with me every day. Please give me a greater desire to fellowship with You by reading Your Word and spending time in prayer. I want to fulfill the purpose You have for my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Jesus loves you and you are very special to Him. Make sure you spend time with God  every day, and ask that He reveal to you His purpose for your life!

West Angeles Church of God In Christ wishes you a great school year!

Youth Ministry Releases A Call to Action For Parents


Youth Ministry Director, Minister Donnie Briggs, writes an astounding call to action for Parents hoping to see a change in the lives of their children. Here’s a short excerpt with a link to the article below!

I see it every Sunday afternoon and Wednesday night, parent’s gathered on the playground, huddled in the multi-purpose room, or arriving and departing in vehicles like a N.A.S.C.A.R. driver entering and exiting “Pit Row”—all to retrieve their youth from service. Each time I find myself asking: “Why don’t they come in,
introduce themselves, or get involved?” While some parents may think parental involvement or influence in their child’s “youth church” is not a matter of great importance, the truth is parents have the most influence on and in the lives of their child….
