The Children's Ministry
"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD (Psalms 127:3a)."
Children are a blessing from the Lord. With these blessings comes responsibilities. As stewards of God's children, parents are responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually (Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4). Churches have a responsibility toward children too. We want to provide an environment in which children are safe, are taught at an age appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We minister to the spiritual needs of children through a children's ministry plan. This need is evident in that many young people reach adulthood and decide not to follow Christ. They hand not been prepared to accept Christ as their Savior. If we are to have a healthy future, it is essential that we have a viable children's ministry. Our Chidren are the Church of TOMORROW!
