Rainbow Express® “Ready to Roll”
Rainbow Express® begins again next week, and we are so EXCITED!
This ministry is our version of a “back-yard Bible club,” with snacks, crafts, music, games, and Bible stories. Children are ready to be outside again, and this long-loved ministry of Mission Arlington® has been (for more than 3 decades) a persistent & positive encouragement to the young people of our community. The number of student groups coming our way is on the rise, and we can’t wait to have them here, as they join us in sharing God’s love with this beautiful community.
Preparation & Prayer
The Mission family has been in prayer and preparation for Rainbow Express® for some time. Prayer for this ministry has been in our hearts and on our lips in multiple settings for the past several weeks. Our staff writes the curriculum in simple language children can comprehend, including crafts, and various teaching aids. Mission teams receive our material weeks in advance, and do their own preparation ahead of their trip. Staff and volunteers gather materials and prepare crafts ahead of time based on the need, so that everything will be ready once groups arrive.
Ready to Roll
The heart and soul of Rainbow Express is to communicate God’s love to children & teens in heartfelt, relevant, and practical ways. We’re ready, and kickoff happens next Monday morning, March 8th. We will gather children in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings, starting next week, and it will continue week after week through the Summer. The Rainbow Express engine is building steam, and ready to roll out of the station. We can’t wait!
Having said that, we also want you to know that we are mindful of the circumstances of these days. and so our student teams will lead Rainbow Express® safely, following important pandemic protocols at every point.
Rainbow Express® begins next week, but it continues multiple weeks throughout the Spring. Please pray for the children & teens who come to listen & learn. Pray too, please, for the student groups who will give of themselves and their time to serve the Lord and to make a difference in our community.
