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)

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.
