It’s Sunday morning, 10:50am, and the first few kids are starting to make their way to the “Love” room. This room is used for a multitude of things including M.O.M.s group, Fast5, Staff Meetings, Care Team Meetings, etc. But every Sunday morning by 11:10am, this room is bursting at the seems with children ranging from Kindergarten to 5th grade. As I make my way into the room, there are kids playing Legos, drawing on the dry erase board, playing the piano and catching up with friends. The room is loud and most people avoid walking across its threshold. Once you’re inside though, it’s easy to get swept up in the chaos of play, laughter, games, and storytelling. Over the past few months I’ve watched the number of these kids grow. They’re building relationships, helping to teach one another about God, and keeping us on our toes. By 12:10pm, things are winding down and almost all of our kids have cleared out. The room is quiet and sometimes in pieces, but as Sarah Hines and I clean up we often talk about how the day went. We talk about new friends, funny conversations and the kids who continue to impress us with their understanding of God. We are thankful for the kids and the chaos and the love that is bursting from the seems of that room.
