Yesterday we had the pleasure of having 13 boys age 5-10 at our house. They are the group we call “Strong Boys,” which is a part of the Children’s Ministry at our church. A couple months ago the “Agape Girls” came over, and the boys thought that it was about time that they got their turn. The agenda for a boys’ day is a little different. We had hotdogs, played kickball, Frisbee golf, Bible-Trivia-Frisbee-Tic-Tac-Toe (yes, that’s a thing), and quarterback challenge. We made superhero chalk drawings and ate ice cream with a bunch of toppings. Good boy activities that tap into the natural masculine spirit of a boy. We want to make our faith come alive in ways that are interesting for a boy, and this was a great chance to do that. During the 2 teaching times, I shared with the boys two topics:
1) God wants us to be strong.
2) What to do when we don’t feel strong.
