3 Ways to Tell if Your Child May Be Ready for the Start Here Family Experience

As parents and followers of Jesus, it’s especially exciting to think about the day when our kids will make the decision to trust Jesus with their lives and ask him to be their Forever Friend. But before that time comes, we have to determine when our kids are ready to think about making that decision.

LCBC kidMinistry’s Start Here Family Experience is an interactive and informative online experience where parents and kids can hear answers to questions about faith. You will leave equipped with information on how to guide the conversation when your child is ready to talk about Forever Friendship. If you’re looking for practical ways to know if your child is ready for Start Here, check out the list below.

  1. Your child is excited about their faith and the activities surrounding it
  2. Sometimes it’s easy to tell when your child isn’t interested in something (like eating their dinner, maybe?), but have you noticed that they’re showing special interest in going to kidVenture Island, listening to worship songs, reading the Bible, and praying at home? Showing excitement towards faith is a sign that your child may be ready to talk more seriously about what it means to have a faith that is their own.

  3. Your child is inviting others to kidVenture Island
  4. When something is meaningful to us, we want to tell others about it! The same goes for your child - if you’ve noticed them wanting to invite friends along to kidVenture Island, tell other families about their church, or just talking more about Jesus in front of others, they could be ready to take a next step and proclaim their own faith.

  5. Your child is asking (sometimes tough!) questions about God (and church, and faith, and the resurrection, and maybe the Easter Bunny…)

Questions probably aren’t anything new in your household, but when they start to revolve around Jesus, faith, and spiritual matters, it’s a good indication that your child is thinking more seriously about what it means to be Forever Friends with Jesus and all that comes with it. Don’t panic - we’ve got answers for you!

We know that if you’re experiencing any of these with your child, you’re excited - but you may also be nervous about having such an important conversation around faith. The good news is that there’s no one better than you in your child’s life to have that conversation - and we want to be sure you feel equipped to have it. Sign up to be notified of when our next Start Here Family Experience is happening at LCBC, and we’ll see you there!
