Do you have to wait until you are grown up before you can be an active member of your church? Not according to the kids who attend the New Seed (Nova Semente) Church in São Paulo, Brazil.
Located in the heart of one of the largest cities in the world, New Seed is a highly active church community. Under the leadership of senior pastor Kleber Gonçalves, the congregation places a high priority on church planting. That means there is plenty for everyone to do, including mission-minded kids.
Several carefully planned services take place every Sabbath to nurture the members and meet the schedules of the secular and postmodern population in the area. One of the outreach programs is geared especially to children. The lively music, colorful spotlights, and talented drama teams portraying stories from the Bible attract an audience every Saturday night. With mid-week Bible studies and prayer groups, New Seed is a hub of fellowship and activity.
