A new live children’s programme has launched on SAT-7 TÜRK. Kids’ Club airs live every weekday morning and is packed full of engaging Christian content for children.
Presenters Selin İsaoğlu, Nora İsaoğlu and Merve Alışır play guitar and teach simple praise songs. Children are taught simple crafts from materials readily available at home. The presenters also prepare and demonstrate how to make snacks at home to encourage healthy eating and teach children about nutrition.
All these elements help to deliver an absorbing magazine-style programme for 7- to- 11- year-olds. As ever with SAT-7’s programmes, the overarching aim of the programme is to share God’s love with those watching. In this case, Turkish children are taught to address everyday issues in a loving biblical way.
In each episode of Kids’ Club, there is practical teaching from the Bible. The topics discussed range from spiritual issues such as how to pray, love for our enemies, applying God’s word, the Holy Spirit, and God’s love and forgiveness. In addition, the presenters teach children how to respond biblically to emotional and practical issues such as anxiety, grief, jealousy, tolerance, responsibilities at home, arrogance and being a good example.
Broadcast five mornings a week for one hour, Kids’ Club follows on from the previously successful live Turkish children’s show, Morning Joy, with a mandate to include more direct Christian teaching in a fun and compelling way. SAT-7 wants to show children that God loves every part of them and wants to encourage and strengthen them spiritually, emotionally and physically.
- Please pray for the presenters that they will be able to show God’s love in a way that children can understand and relate to. Pray for the recruitment of gifted presenters and staff who can produce a range of shows for all ages which help Turkish people understand the truths of Christianity.
- Pray for the Turkish children watching, ask that their numbers continue to increase and they would discover other relevant SAT-7 programmes on SAT-7 TÜRK. Ask that the families watching would understand God’s love for them and enjoy and benefit from all aspects of the programme.
- Pray for similar style children’s programmes on other SAT-7 channels which communicate God’s love in Arabic and Farsi through educational and entertaining means. Give thanks that SAT-7 TÜRK is broadcast on the government-regulated satellite, Türksat, which has an audience of 50 million in Turkey.
- Pray this verse for Turkey today: “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:16)
