Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 19:14) To this, we add our hearty Amen! We love the simple faith of the children, and see in them a blessed opportunity, and a sacred responsibility, to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We believe our calling is to point the children to a relationship with Jesus, and to disciple them so that by Godʼs grace, they would become life long followers of Jesus. We believe we are called to do this in two ways. First we are to love them with the love of Christ, and secondly we are to teach them about the love of Christ from His Word. On an age appropriate level, we seek to teach the children how to use the Word and to love the Word.
While Sunday School is the heart of our ministry to the children, we also offer a childrenʼs sermon during the worship service for those younger children (generally 3rd grade and below) who arenʼt quite ready to stay for the full service.In all that we do, whether it be Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, or worship, it is our great joy to minister to the children. We pray that through Christ Church, they would come to know and love Jesus.
