Tuesday, October 22nd

  1. Empowering Kids Luncheon - 11:00 am
    • In a perfect church, families would be faithfully discipling their children at home while their church family partnered with them. At the church, teachers would be discipling and mentoring children in their groups. In this perfect church, children would be seen as younger brothers and sisters in Christ and would be serving alongside adults who are their mentors. This sounds crazy or even impossible, but it isn’t. Join us for our next Empowering Kids luncheon in your area. The lunch will be October 22, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Pizza Ranch, 1464 Hwy 248, Branson.

      During the training, we will cover three important topics:

      Family Reset: Many families today do not have any idea what their top priorities should be. Education, sports, and other extracurricular activities all compete for the kids’ and parents’ time. These are not bad things, but when a family gets their priorities out of order, it spells trouble. We will show you how to help families reset their priorities so that they are putting God first in their homes.

      Teacher/Discipler: Most Christian resources today address the “developmental learning stages” of children. Unfortunately, this attempts to determine what a child can or cannot do for God due to their age. However, when teachers look at what the Holy Spirit can do through a child, they begin to see the child move to a whole new level of spiritual growth. Learn effective ways to turn your teachers into disciple-makers and mentors.

      Ministry Involvement: Every believing child in your church has spiritual gifts that can be used today. Learn creative ways to involve children in your church now using their gifts. You will hear testimonies and see amazing examples from local churches that are heavily involving children in ministry. They are witnessing astonishing fruits as a result.

      Be sure to invite your leadership to join you. Children’s pastors, pastors, leaders, and Sunday school teachers are all invited to attend. Cost is $25/person and includes lunch and handbook. The registration deadline is October 21. To register, visit https://store7019110.ecwid.com/#!/Empowering-Kids-Luncheon-Branson-Missouri/p/148941185/category=12897602

  2. Free Mammograms at Cox Branson - 3:30 pm
