Our Children’s Ministry Philosophy

Knowledge of God:  The Bible reveals to us our God.  Our teaching should point to God’s name and character as the foundation for our faith.  Children need to learn of the greatness of our God.
Colossians 1:10 That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
 
Rooted and Grounded:  Children can learn God’s truth at a young age.  By teaching great Bible truth to children, we lay a foundation on which they can build a life of godly choices.
Colossians 2:7 Rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
 
Precept upon Precept:  We desire to communicate God’s Word to children at the level of their understanding.  As they grow mentally and spiritually, we can seek to expand their understanding of Bible truth and its application.
Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little.
 
Hearers to Doers:  Teaching God’s Word is our foundation; however, we know that the fruit of such teaching is found in the obedience of the hearers.  We desire to apply God’s truth to daily living, and we will encourage the children to make right choices throughout the week based on their learning on Sunday.  
James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
 
Teach your children:  God’s Word clearly demands that parents teach Bible truth to their children.  Our church desires to assist parents by reinforcing Biblical principles in children’s Sunday school classes.  
Deuteronomy 11:19 You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
 
From a child:  Children will not remember everything from their lessons in church, but we will show them Jesus.  We desire to establish a long-term plan of teaching the whole council of God to the youth of our church.  A sure foundation can be prepared in the early years, built upon in the teen years, and made to last for a lifetime.
2 Timothy 3:15 And that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
