Meet a teacher who began a Bible Club in a public school 6 years ago. She mentors 15-20 girls from 4th-6th grade every week. How can you serve the next generation where you live?
“Bible Hang Time” is an afternoon club, which meets every Monday after school for an hour, in the school where I am a 4th grade teacher. Approximately 15-20 girls from grades 4-6 attend each week after school.
We start each club meeting with an opportunity to share about the week. This gives the girls a chance to talk about what is on their minds and hearts.
Then we go into a short devotional time, which deals with issues that typical girls experience and we use God’s word to address those issues.
After the devotional we have a time of worship. I play about 3 songs on my guitar and the girls sing. This is normally our favorite time together.
We end our last 10 minutes of the time together praying together. I start the prayer and the girls jump in and pray for their specific needs. It is so cool to see the confidence that they are gaining in praying aloud.
Starting this week, I will be focusing on the message of Easter and the resurrection of Christ. This club started about 6 years ago when a friend took the lead and I was her co-leader. Now I lead it with occasional help from other teachers.
God has really blessed this program and there is even going to be a boys club starting at the school soon, as a result! I am amazed that He has used me, an ordinary schoolteacher, to share His Good News with public school children.
