ABC Kids is a kids ministry of the Arabic Baptist Church of Boston for children in grades K through 5. We meet two or three Friday nights per month at the church from 7:30 pm-9:30 pm. Check the church calendar for specific dates. Fun activities, snacks and biblical teaching are provided by caring adults. Our ABC Kids are encouraged to get to know God more intimately and to read, memorize and explore scripture on their own in addition to what is learned in our meetings. Parents are encouraged to connect with their kids at home to further encourage this learning. Each child receives a binder in which to keep lessons and papers, and an ABC Kids T-shirt, and receives recognition for scripture memorization and other accomplishments. The ABC Kids ministry was founded on the biblical principle that children should be trained in the way they should go, and when they are grown, they will not depart from such early teaching. The words of our ABC Kids prayer, taken from the book of Philippians and found on the backs of our T-shirts, embody the goals of our ministry: "And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God." (Philippians 1:9-11)

The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. For no word from God will ever fail.”
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.
Mary Visits Elizabeth
At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”
And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
