NADYM (RUSSIA) – On May 7-11 workshops for children’s ministers from local churches took place in Nadym. Valentina Fedorova, Head of the Children’s Ministry Department, was invited by the ‘Good News’ church to be the key speaker. The goals for the workshops were to share experience with younger generation, and to teach church leaders to work more effectively with children.
Some of the workshops and sermons addressed married couples, who already have or plan to have children. ‘That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children.’ (Ps. 78:6) Children are the most favorable for the perception of the Word, and it is important not to miss this opportunity. It is better to lay the foundation of God's Truth in a child, so he or she would always be able to return to the correct path in life.
The workshops helped to answer some questions, for example, how to teach your child spiritual basics? how to communicate with your child? how to build a lesson? Valentina Fedorova also covered some other issues and demonstrated very interesting and original methods of working with children.
