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)

Two Kinds of Wisdom
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
