Sharing Christ with the Next Generation

ReFrame Ministries' Kids in Action videos show how kids like Siena are using their gifts in service to God's kingdom

Siena spent her free time fixing up an old motorcycle to be sold at a charity auction to feed people who are hungry.

Abigail led her third-grade classmates to create and sell bookmarks, then donated the profits to those affected by the war in Ukraine. 

Landon prepared to play the role of young David in his community’s play about the biblical king.

These stories might not make it into any mainstream news headlines, but thanks to ministry shares and other support from the Christian Reformed Church, kids who are putting their Christian faith into action have been sharing their experiences with their peers.

The stories—and many more like them—are featured in ReFrame Ministries’ Kids in Action video series from ReFrame’s Kids Corner ministry.

“Each episode tells the story of different kids who are sharing God’s story in a unique way,” said Kurt Selles, ReFrame’s director. “The videos also include a biblical lesson that relates to the story and demonstrates Scripture’s call to share Christ with others through the use of our gifts.”

The videos and other biblical resources for children are available on YouTube and social media platforms. 

One Family’s Story

In Michigan, the Holman family has been using Kids Corner resources together for many years. Ten-year-old Luke has been a fan of the audio program Liz and Friends since his sister played it for him. He’s listened to most of the show’s 20 seasons multiple times, both with his family and on his own.

“I believe he may be the biggest Kids Corner fan that ever existed,” said Luke’s dad, Harland. “He listens to it all the time.”

In addition to listening to the program together, the Holman family spends time doing other activities that help young families grow in faith, such as enjoying family dinners together, going on walks, volunteering, and going to church.

Reaching the Next Generation

As more people learn about the many resources available from Kids Corner, ReFrame plans to develop a new smartphone app with interactive Bible lessons and more devotions for children and parents. 

“We are old enough to remember the ‘old days’ of the Back to God Hourway back,” shared one family of supporters who wished to remain anonymous. “You are the new generation that builds upon the past and finds the present and future limitless. Keep up the excellent work, and we want you to know we have been supporters for a long time and pray for you every day.”
