For the past six years, I've worked with 5th and 6th graders from the heart of the city
Every Wednesday night of the school year is "Faith Factor" night at West Morris Street Free Methodist Church, located in the first urban neighborhood southwest of downtown Indianapolis. The hour consists of outdoor and indoor games and relay races, music videos, Bible stories, life-issue discussions, crafts, excursions, snacks, and a Fear Factor challenge to conclude the evening. It's been a great privilege to work with six different sets of 5th and 6th graders. This fall, I'm just a monthly guest presenter, but my compatriots Dawn Archer Miles and Marti Reeser are facilitating each week. Please offer intercession for these children and those who work with them.
