Jesus placed such value upon children that he exhorted his disciples with the following instruction in Matthew 18:3-6.
Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it is better for him that heavy millstone be hung around his neck, and that he be drowned in the depth of the sea.
Our entire team of loving teachers understands how precious every child is in the sight of the Lord. Our goal is to provide a Christian support for parents and caregivers as well as teaching the children what it means to have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is our desire that all children from the youngest to the oldest will; sense the love of our Lord, come to a saving knowledge of Him, learn to love God’s Word and have fun in the process. It won’t take long for guests to see that our teachers have a strong passion and love for children.
We also believe it is essential that all children’s ministry teachers and workers are equipped with the best resources available to teach the children biblical truths in a fun and engaging way. For this reason, periodic teacher trainings are held to better equip our volunteers with the resources they need.
The mission of our Children's Ministry is to I.M.P.A.C.T. the Lives of Children with the following:
