Invitation to Parents of Young Children

As a pastor to young families, I have sometimes heard lament from parents about missing a spiritual message for them at Young Children’s Church. So do I hear opportunity knocking?
In February, we will have a four-week series in church called “Growing Through Challenges.” It’s about the story of Gideon in the Book of Judges and is a great story for kids. There is an accompanying workbook for adults which is an excellent source for discussion ideas. The workbook is available at the Pastors Office for $5 or download this ebook for $1.99:
So opportunity is knocking! We are offering FREE BABYSITTING (up to age 10) for this series on the four Sundays in February. After church, parents can take coffee into the Ezekiel Tower and join in a discussion while their kids stay in the main room playing, doing projects and having snacks. Toddlers can go with their parents. Wrap-up happens at 10:45 am.
For planning purposes, please let us know by Sunday, January 19, if you need babysitting. Please call or email me, Phil Schnarr (215-360-5298,, or Robert Winterhalter (
