“Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

– Mark 10:14

The Bible clearly teaches that God loves children and is concerned with their welfare. It is His desire that they would grow in the knowledge of Him.

Whose responsibility is it that they grow?

God has ordained the church into existence, yet He commands parents to be responsible for their children’s growth. It is the parent who will one day have to give an account of how well they handled the task.

We realizes that this is a difficult job, but we are committed to coming alongside parents in training their children. This is why we have made a great effort to:

  • – Locate good teaching tools;
  • – Equip loving and nurturing teachers; and
  • – Provide for a safe and healthy environment.

We want to provide our children with a wonderful place in which they can worship and learn about Jesus.

What about kids in the Sanctuary during service?

We feel the best way we can serve the whole family is by providing a good quality Children’s Ministry – one which teaches our kids at a level they can more easily understand.

Ministry Verse:

“Train up a child in the way they should go, And when they are old they will not depart from it…” (Proverbs 22:6)

Ministry Goal:

The Goal of the children’s ministry is to assist parents in training their children in the ways of the Lord. We will accomplish our goal by teaching them the foundational teachings of the Christian faith which includes learning about Jesus, salvation, worship, prayer and the bible. It is our hope that the children know and have a personal relationship with Jesus, will know the foundational truths of the bible and be able to share their faith with others as they continue to grow in the ways of the Lord.

Ministry Description:

We believe God has given parents the responsibility to train up their children in the ways of Lord. We realize that this is a difficult job, but we are committed to coming alongside parents in training their children. In our efforts to assist parents, we as a ministry will use the best learning tools and curriculum that will allow us to teach the children at a level they can easily understand. We also will provide a safe and healthy environment in which the children can learn.
