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