Awana Grand Prix and Pinewood Derby racing - Where a child, an adult and a small block of wood combine for a lot of fun and memories.
"Reaching boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ, to train them to serve Him"
I am encouraged that the Gospel Message Time forum exists on Derby Talk (which, as far as I have been able to discover, is a rather unique feature of this particular discussion board). But it's also a little sobering to admit that this forum has by far the least amount of activity (sometimes going years without any updates), even though its subject matter is the most important. The initial post to this topic is now almost a decade old, with only one reply, for example.gpraceman wrote:Workshops are a good opportunity to try to strike up a conversation with the adults and share your testimony or talk about the Gospel.
I was just thinking that a workshop really seems like an activity where God may provide opportunities to witness, because one may be in the best position to have one-on-one interaction with families without the business of the race. Then I saw this topic.
To encourage the establishment of derby activity as a ministry opportunity within a local congregation, I would be curious if anyone has any encouraging stories about positive responses to personal witnessing during a workshop, or advice to share about witnessing within a workshop environment. Thanks!
But, since I'm here...
Our pastor had a very good devotion before our race on Sunday which was held to coincide with our school's open house. The devotion compared the work the kids put into their cars to transform them from blocks of wood into works of art and speed to the work that God has done in us through the Holy Spirit to tranform us from clay pots into something special. 2 Corinthians 4:7
If it is ok with you My wife & I would like to offer a little gospel music.
To help in Gospel of our Lord & Savior.
There is Victory in Jesus.
