Where Do You Turn For Answers?
You can't change the secular nature of our public schools, but you can change the microenvironment of a student at school. Help students find other Christian friends and surround themselves with good people. Set up Christian clubs inside public schools so our kids can support each other. It's like a Christian fortress to protect kids from negative influences as much as possible. A Christian club also serves as a launchpad to touch the hearts of non-Christians who so desperately need to hear the gospel.
Safety Ring For Non-Christians
While offering sanctuary for Christians shouldn't why not send out lifelines to non-Christians as well? Be the light students need. Young people question life and search for answers at any student age. Why not engage in their journey to adulthood and provide answers teachers may fear to tackle. You have the opportunity to provide another option to the secular nature of public schools.
Reach Our Public School Kids with God's Love
You will feel empowered and emboldened to reach our kids in public schools with the powerful message of God. Christians have far reaching rights in public schools. You will be astounded to find out how many Federal an civic organizations support Christian clubs. As long as the club is voluntary and operates during non-instructional school hours you are allowed to teach any Bible story and talk about God as if you were in church.
Are you a Parent, Pastor, Church leader or Concerned Adult
Then I'd like to encourage you to provide support for our students and get the book Bring the Light to School. (the ebook version is only $2.99) It will explain step by step how to get into public schools. It's difficult to maintain faith in a secular environment without a Christian community. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, pastor, church leader or any concerned adult you're called to live out the Great Commission. Be that salt and light our students so desperately need. Why travel afar to share the love of God when the opportunity is so great in our own backyard?
