Risen Indeed! Twice a week I have the joy of meeting with children who are less than four years old. It is awesome to remember the attitude of Jesus toward children. Such as these children are the Kingdom of God and unless you become like a child you cannot get into the Kingdom. It is even more frightening to stand looking into the eyes of those children and know they are watching your every move and expression to learn what it means to be alive - what it means to be good. I remember also the stern warning from the Lord. If anyone offends one of these little ones, it would be better that a millstone be hung around his neck and he be cast into the sea. With that said, I share with you what they taught me fresh about Easter. We were talking about the events surrounding Easter. What is going to happen next Sunday? Someone immediately said, “Easter!” I replied, “No that’s two Sundays from now. Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, the day Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey and the children broke palm branches and put them on the ground in front of the donkey and sang, ‘Hosanna’ and shouted ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.’” Then I said, “Do you know what happened after that?” They said, “Yes, He was killed on a cross.” Then we talked about how Jesus was treated even though he came to help us. I asked the group if they knew what Jesus had done for us. The answer came, at first from one child then others then a chorus, “He died on the cross to save us from our sins.” Before I could ask what that meant, a child, a girl, literally shouted above the dim of a hundred plus voices. “BUT HE DID NOT

STAY DEAD!” The children belonged to a community of faith. The girl had very recently witnessed her cat get run over by a car and killed. She was taking him for a walk. I am thinking that they have the message right. We have been sad because of our sins. We have even confessed that our sins were the cause of our Christ dying an awful death. We have also used that confession at times to fail to serve that Lord with all we are and all we have. To say that we are unworthy is frequently a cop out. Especially is this true when we have the joy of Easter, of resurrection, of new life to show us that not even death has the ultimate power. Love and life have the last word. The joy of Easter is not the end of the story, just the beginning of His story and our story. When the women went to the tomb, according to Luke’s account of this story, two bright angels said to them, Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is risen! Go tell the others. In other words, this is not the end it is the beginning. You have something to do. Get busy. Paul concludes his argument for the resurrection with these words found in 1 Corinthians 15:56-58. The sting of death is sin, is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives

Volunteers Needed Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Deuteronomy 6:7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

As you can see from the Children's Worship Schedule, Knightdale Baptist Church is in need of faithful folks who are willing to work with our children on Sunday mornings. I offer my heartfelt thanks to those of you who have already volunteered. To those of you that haven't, I ask, "why not?" Often some of our first and fondest memories of church are from the times when we were children and blessed with that

special teacher who helped us take our first steps on the road to Christ. Remember what Jesus said in Mark 10:13 -- "let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God." These little people are the future of God's church. Won't you help? I assure you that you'll get as much as you give.

7 Reasons Why Your Church Nursery Service Is Vital To Your Church by Tony Kummer Too often serving in the church nursery can seem like a thankless job, but it should not be that way. With that in mind, I offer these following 7 reasons why serving in the church nursery is important.

May, 2011

Children’s Time Ministry Leader’s Schedule May 1st - Bill Scanlon May 8th - David Betts May 15th - James Lucas May 22nd Jim Farrington May 29th Monique Mackey

Reason #1 God is in the church nursery. This may come as a shock, but the Bible has specific promises about God’s presence when children are welcomed and loved in Jesus’ name. You can read my article about this titled God is in The Church Nursery. Reason #2 Your service in the church nursery allows church goers to focus on worship, rather than worrying about their children. In a very real sense your ministry makes it possible for the pastor to fulfill his ministry. Reason #3 The first (and sometimes lasting) feelings a child will have toward church are formed in the nursery department. While not everyone agrees, I believe that a positive experience in the church nursery is essential. Reason #4 When you serve in the nursery, you are being entrusted with the most important (and vulnerable) members of the church family. There is no greater treasure on this side of heaven than the little ones God has given us. You must be someone special to have a job that is so important. Reason #5 Your service is essential for your own spiritual growth. You may have never looked at it this way, but a growing Christian is always a serving Christian. Jesus was known for putting others first, when you serve in the church nursery you are walking in his example. Reason #6 The church nursery is the first contact young families will have with your church. Your friendly greeting and exceptional care for their children can make a great first impression for your church. If they don’t feel like their children are safe, they will not return - and rightly so. Reason #7 Your service in the church nursery is a powerful opportunity for prayer. If every nursery worker would spend several minutes praying over the children in their care, imagine how God might begin to change this coming generation. There is no better way to create an environment of spiritual nurture than to pray while you serve in the nursery. ©2008 Tony Kummer Ministry To Children Permission is granted for non-commercial use of this content.

Youth Events Upcoming Events: Summer Mission Trip - Week of June 20th.

VBS - July 10th-15th

DNOW Disciple Now The Knightdale Baptist Church Youth will be hosting a Disciple Now event May 6th-8th. The idea of DNOW is to provide a youth camp-style experience in half the time. We will have a guest speaker, Jason Smith, from Pinelake Church in Mississippi with us, as well as music from Michael Roach and his band. The theme of the event is “The One.” This is a huge event that your students will not want to miss! They will be challenged and changed as a result of the weekend. We will be partnering with other churches in the area and the cost of the entire weekend will be $50. Volunteers are needed though. To make sure that DNOW is a success we need volunteers like you willing to invest your time into helping these students. There are 4 teams that you can be a part of, so please see the list provided below: Prayer Team - a team who is dedicated to praying for the students and leaders attending this event. A team who is dedicated to pouring out their hearts; asking God to move in a powerful way. This team will meet before and during the event to seek God’s face and stand in the gap for those attending DNOW. This the most unseen team, but by far the most crucial one. Set-up Team - there are 4 different set-up teams to choose from: set-up team for Friday night, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. We have numerous events going on all three days and we will need numerous volunteers to make it happen. Let us know if you can help with one, multiple or all of the above times. Small Group Leader - we will need 6-8 small group leaders, per gender, depending on how many register for the event. You would be leading the small groups, consisting of 5-7 students, right after each message. Your primary goal will be to facilitate discussion about the sermon and how it impacted and related to their lives. Let us know if you would like to mentor a group on the three different occasions. Host Home - we need 8-10 families to open up their homes on Saturday night, May 7th, for a group of 5-7 girls to sleep over. The guys will be camping out that night, but there will be a bonfire for both to enjoy, so the girls will get picked up by you at 9:30 pm. You will take them back to your home and bring them back to church the next morning. You will also need to provide breakfast for them Sunday morning. We already have 4 families committed to helping, but we still need 4-6 more. If you cannot volunteer but would like to be a sponsor, you may make a donation of $50 per the number of students you would like to sponsor. If you would like to register your student or help in any of the areas listed above, please contact Justin Boatwright at or 919-414-5747.

Children’s Musical Wednesday, May 25th at 6:45 PM The Amazing Grace Race created by Celeste Clydesdale These young racers are learning that the secret to running life's grace race is to follow in His steps but in their shoes. When facing tough stretches through places like the Valley of Despair and Badlands Bog, these kids learn the value of love, forgiveness, perseverance, and the value of working as a team. Running with faith, they look to the great cloud of witnesses cheering them on and consider the signs they are leaving for those who will come behind. Most importantly, they run so as to cross the finish line and hear Jesus say, "Well done!" Come see The Amazing Grace Race and invite your family and friends!
