ASK Kickoff Party Huge Success

ASK held its kickoff party at Lantana Community Fellowship Church. Those who registered got shirts, books, Bibles and backpacks…and a whole lot of fun! Free hotdogs, bounce houses, face painting and lots of other activities were awaiting the kids as they signed up for another year of fun and fellowship.

ASK Bible study is starting its fourth year at the church and has grown from just 35 kids to over 200 this year.

“The mission is to make disciples in our community through caring in-depth Bible study,” wrote Jessica Marr in a letter to parents.

ASK stands for After School Kids. It is a community Bible study started after some of the area moms’ kids aged out of their Bible study group as toddlers. They wanted to continue something for kids ages Kindergarten through fifth grade. In just four years, the growth has been exponential.

ASK follows the Community Bible Study (CBS) curriculum. They meet every Tuesday at Lantana Community Fellowship right after school from 3:30 until 5:50pm. Each ASK section has three parts: snack time, large group time and small group time. During large group there is the Pledge of Allegiance songs and a short talk or skit about that week’s Bible passage. Then the kids go to their small group to go over the lesson homework. Each child is given 9 questions to complete and a Bible verse to memorize. Parents are encouraged to work on it with them.

“It’s a great foundation for the kids,” said Lynn Marsh, Teaching Director for ASK. “Our job is to plant and nourish a seed.”
