Children's Ministry

"These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up." (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)

Corporate Worship and Children

Parents ought to be encouraged to worship with their children both at home and with the gathered local body regularly.

We want to encourage a lifestyle of worship; one that exists in the home as much as it does in the church.

Services ought to be structured to invite participation from all age groups, in all aspects of the service.

This will be a lifelong endeavor in the life of our church. It is not easy to involve everyone in everything in every given service and gathering, but it will certainly be our constant goal.

Children are always welcome to participate in corporate worship with the body at large.

We love children and want to worship with them and even learn from them. If Jesus did not reject children even at crucial teaching opportunities, neither will we.

While children are welcome in corporate worship, we will try to offer “Children’s Church” for those parents who prefer for their children to engage in more age-directed learning.

Again, we want to be a support to parents, assisting them in raising their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Because of that, we will try to support the ministry of Children’s Church with those parents that have decided that it is a crucial tool to help them raise their families in the will and desires of God. We will be happy to offer this ministry for children up to 3rd grade, or sooner if their parents decide that it is appropriate for them to participate in the larger service.

Children’s Church ought to be oriented toward preparing children to participate in corporate worship with the larger church body, as parents see fit.

We would do our children a disservice to offer them entertainment until a certain age, and then expect them to enjoy worshipping with the larger body when the time comes. Some goals in Children’s Church will be to teach children about worship, encouraging them to maintain a mindset of worship, and showing them the pleasure of worshipping with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
