26 Feb Episode 14 | Reaching Our Children for Christ
On Good New for the City, we’re all about saturating the DMV with the Gospel. When we commit to telling others about Christ and the good news, we have to remember the children. The little ones need the Gospel!
Sometime we may think they’re too young to get it or maybe it won’t make a difference in their lives now but that’s not so. In Matthew 18 Jesus says that our father in Heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost. He actually talks a great deal about how we should handle children in that chapter.
On this episode of Good News For The City, Steve Park – Founder and Executive Director of Little Lights and Beverly Carroll, Director of Training at the Child Evangelism Fellowship of Greater Washington joined us to talk about reaching children for Christ.
Steve Park founded Little Lights in 1995 to share God’s love with under-served children and families in Washington, D.C. Little Lights has been committed to providing sanctuaries of encouragement, hope, and practical assistance to at-risk children, youth, and families in southeast Washington, DC.
Little Lights has recruited more than 2,000 volunteers for weekly tutoring, enrichment trips, mentoring, and special events. More than 900 children have participated in Little Lights’ programs throughout its history.
