저희 유초등부는 매주일 K-5학년 학생들과 모여 하나님께 마음과 정성을 다해 예배를 드리고 말씀을 배우며 삶 속에서 하나님을 더욱 사랑하고 이웃을 사랑하며 함께 자라나는 곳입니다.
저희 교회 비전센터에 들어오시면 왼쪽 벽에 역대하 7장 성경구절이 적혀있습니다. 솔로몬이 성전을 지은 후, 기도하였을때 여호와께서 에게 나타나셔서 하신 말씀입니다.
“내가 이미 네 기도를 듣고 이 곳을 택하여 내게 제사하는 성전을 삼았으니 내 이름으로 일컫는 내 백성이 그들의 악한 길에서 떠나 스스로 낮추고 기도하여 내 얼굴을 찾으면 내가 하늘에서 듣고 그들의 죄를 사하고 그들의 땅을 고칠지라 이제 이 곳에서 하는 기도에 내가 눈을 들고 귀를 기울이리니이는 내가 이미 이 성전을 택하고 거룩하게 하여 내 이름을 여기에 영원히 있게 하였음이라 내 눈과 내 마음이 항상 여기에 있으리라” 이 말씀처럼 저희 아이들이 어린나이일 때부터 하나님을 찾고 기도하며 죄를 회개하고 우리의 죄를 용서하시고 생명을 주신 예수님께 감사드리고 남은 삶 속에서 성령님을 의지하여 말씀에 순종하며 하나님 안에서 목적과 꿈을 찾아 주신 달란트를 하나님 나라를 위해 살아 세상의 빛과 소금이 되길 기도합니다.

Kids Blog-Paul's missionary journeys
Last two weeks, kids explored Paul's missionary journeys in the Book of Acts.
Bible Story: Paul's missionary journeys
Bible Passages: Acts 13-16
The Word of God continued to spread and floursh. Barnabas and Saul were set apart and sent off for the work God has called them. They were sent on their way by the Holy Spirit. They traveled to Cyprus, Perga, Pisidian Antoich, Iconium, Lystra, Derbe, and returned to Antioch in Syria. They preached the gospel boldly, strengtened the disciples and encouraged them to remain faithful. On their second missionary journey, Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus and Paul chose Silas and went through Syria and Cilicia. The churches were strengtened in the faith and grew daily in numbers. Paul and his companions traveled to Derbe, Lystra and traveled throughout the region of Phyrgia and Galatia. Then they went to Macedonia after seeing the vision, realizing that God had called them to preach the gospel to the people there.
Once when they were going to the place of prayer, they met a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul, shouting, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved." She kept this up for many days. Finally, Paul became annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, "In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to come out of her!" At that moment the spirit left her. When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and draged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. Paul and Silas were stripped, beaten with rods, severely flogged and thrown into prison with their feet fastened in the stocks. Even in prison, Paul and Silas prayed and sang hymns to God and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly, there was a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken and the prison doors flew open. Everyone's chains came loose but Paul and Silas did not run away. When the jailer woke up, he was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, "Don't harm yourself! We are all here!" The jailer asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. The jailer took them and washed their wounds, and he and all his household were baptized. He brought them to his house and set a meal before Paul and Silas. He was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God!
When Paul and Silas were arrested and thrown into prison, they could have easily given up and stay disappointed, frustrated. Instead, they prayed and sang hyms to God. They rejoiced and praised God! Regardless of their situations, they remembered Jesus who suffered on the cross for their sins and gave them joy of salvation! They were relentless and grateful that they get to partake in Christ' suffering and ready to face persecution and death for the sake of the Gospel. And because they stayed, God used even their time in prison and saved the jailer and his household!
