Striving to teach big truths to small hearts so they will learn to love God, and desire to worship and serve Him.
We strive for …
• an effective ministry that impacts the lives of children and parents
• our children to learn big and deep spiritual truths, giving them a foundation to build upon. Our goal is to see them come to an understanding, not just with their mind, but in their heart.
• to provide parents with support and materials that encourages them to take responsibility and initiative for the spiritual growth of their child/children. To assist in their efforts to teach and disciple their child/children.
Philosophy of Children’s Ministry
Responsibility of Parents:Parents are charged with the responsibility of raising their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. They are to train them and teach them in the way they are to go. It is ultimately the parent’s responsibility to love, encourage and shepherd their child’s heart.
Responsibility of the Church:The church has a responsibility to encourage, train and equip parents for this ministry to their children. The Children’s Ministry is to come along side parents and support them in their efforts to teach, train, discipline and disciple their children. This will be accomplished Sunday mornings through teaching doctrinal truths, a modeling of life & conduct, helping students read and memorize scripture and explore the excitement of the Bible. In addition, we will help facilitate the parent’s responsibility for the spiritual growth of their children. Each week parents will be provided take home material that guides them in Biblical discussions with their children and helps them and their children to memorize scripture together.
We strive to teach big truths so small hearts love God, worship God and learn to serve God. The purpose of teaching knowledge is to transform the heart. Although we want to cultivate an environment that is fun, we cannot compete with the flare of the world. Therefore, we will not work to make each week bigger and better entertainment. We desire to see children realize the deep fulfillment of Scripture and the Joy of Christ. We will work in such a way that the Holy Spirit will grab their attention so we don’t have too! We have a lot of fun and exiting things taking place.
