deeper in God's Word
Gopher Buddies is a PARENT AND
CHILD ministry. It exists not only for spiritual growth of your child but
also for you to develop a growing family relationship around the truth of
God's Word. Another benefit of Gopher Buddies is that it has a positive
impact on the character and conduct of children. What they learn in the
Gopher Buddy meeting, the Bible Time, Quiet Time, Scripture memory and
Christian service should impact their character building truths and conduct.
YOU are an important part of this program, as you will be working with them
with their Quiet Time books on a daily basis. The time spent is short but
very important to the program.
Each month the children will learn one memory verse. It is usually an easy
verse…short. We will teach that verse in the GB meeting on Wednesday. It is
up to you to reinforce that verse. Memorizing scripture is an
important foundation in Biblical learning. It is important that they not
only know the verse, but also know the meaning so they will be able to apply
it to their lives.
We are committed to helping to disciple your child to grow in the Lord.
The Gopher Buddy program is a great one…one with games, prizes and even
puppets. There is a lesson at the end of each month that is a review of what
they have learned and it involves a "GB puppet family." This is a sweet
program and one that is filled with a wonderful Biblical foundation for your
child. The Gopher Buddies Program works on incentives. The children move up
based on their completion of each level's requirements. Requirements include
Scripture memorization, faithful quiet time completion, and Christian
We thank God for the opportunity He has given us and look forward to the
great work that YOU and we will accomplish for the glory of God. And, we
thank you for entrusting your child to us.
