Christmas Ministry in the Public Schools

This year we will be making Christmas presentations in two public elementary schools and one private kindergarten in our community.  Emily Luo of the Priscilla Mission is helping our church to plan and coordinate these presentations. Several ladies in our congregation are also helping to prepare the gift bags that will be distributed to each student and will be helping with the presentations.  Each gift bag will have Christmas themed gospel tracts and information about our church, as well as goodies for the kids.  A separate gift bag is being prepared for the teachers.  So far we are scheduled for 9 different presentation to more than 700 students and teachers.

Because we clearly present the gospel and the content of our presentation is overtly religious, we have faced opposition in past years from both teachers and parents.  In some cases tracts and church information was removed from the gift bags by teachers after they were distributed.  We try to be very open and up-front about the purpose of our presentations when we make the initial contact with the teachers, but many people in this culture still don’t understand that Christmas is about Christ—which is one reason these presentations are valuable.  Please pray for this year’s ministry according to the following schedule. (Remember that we are 13 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and 16 hours ahead of the West Coast.)
