Our children’s Sunday school program is designed to reiterate and solidify the biblical worldview presented to children by their parents at home. We seek to help children think in terms of God’s story of redemption. This is a Gospel-centered approach in which children come to identify with both the experience of rebellion, which characterizes the lives of the historical figures in the Bible, along with God’s mercy and grace towards His people, which culminates in the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
Our curriculum is gospel-centered and seeks to impart a view of God to our children that they will find compelling. We do not seek to present Bible lessons which simply teach morality. Rather, we desire to present a vision of God’s greatness, love, and goodness so that our children will see the inestimable value of God and will be compelled to turn and follow Him.
Our Children’s Church ministry is designed to provide children with an opportunity to worship God and to hear God’s Word taught in an engaging way while their parents are in the main Sunday morning worship service. Children are encouraged to worship God through singing, fun activities, and an age-appropriate, God-centered Bible lesson.
Each Sunday morning, children accompany their parents into the main worship service where they worship with their parents until they are dismissed for Children’s Church. All parents, and especially those who are new to our church or who are visiting, are welcome to attend with their children to experience Children’s Church first-hand. We support the decision of parents If they prefer to have their children remain with them in the regular church service.
The ultimate purpose of our children’s ministry is to point children to God through Jesus Christ. In our efforts to fulfill this purpose, we embrace several important convictions. We believe that children’s ministry must be God-glorifying, Gospel-centered, Bible-saturated, and missionally minded.
Children’s ministry must be God-glorifying. We believe that we exist for the glory of God (Isa 43:6-7). Therefore, in our children’s ministries, we seek to do all things to magnify the greatness of God (1Cor 10:31).
Children’s ministry must be Bible-saturated. We believe that our children’s ministry must be thoroughly saturated in the Scriptures because the Scriptures provide us with all we need in order that we might be “thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2Tim 3:16).
