Puppets energize ministry at Northridge Churchcomment (0)

January 7, 2010

At Northridge Baptist Church, Northport, puppets have caused quite a stir. Church member Rick Sevenish began the ministry about two years ago, and it’s grown to be a staple of the children’s program at the Tuscaloosa Baptist Association church. One Sunday a month, all the children’s groups are combined for a puppet service. Sevenish creates the skits and a team of about 10 volunteers puts on the show. Interaction between the children and puppets is encouraged.

“We didn’t expect it to grow like it did but through the Lord, it’s really grown,” said Tina Candee, children’s director at Northridge Baptist, noting that the ministry involves more than double the original amount of volunteers. “This is an absolute blessing from the Lord.”

The church, which averages 150 to 175 on a typical Sunday, got a new pastor in August — Brad Smith — and Candee said that is just adding to the already present energy.

“I think our church as a whole has had some revival, some new excitement,” she said. “We’re busy and we’re growing.”
