Leader: Judi Pottage – we are blessed to have Judi joining our staff in September 2018. She will be leading our wonderful Kids Ministry volunteer team.
In Kids Ministry we are using the DiscipleLand curriculum.
DiscipleLand’s family of Bible resources forms a comprehensive Children’s Discipleship System™—an intentional, relational, and transformational process designed to help make disciples for life.
Following Jesus’ commandment to “make disciples” (Matthew 28:18-20), DiscipleLand is designed to train children in Christian discipleship. Every quarter of curriculum builds on the foundation of knowledge and skills learned previously.
Here are a few of the key points the different ages will focus on:
*Suppling children with a solid foundation of knowing God.
*Learning to love and respect Him.
*Anchor children to the authority and power of God’s Word.
*Give them the skills to handle their Bibles comfortably.
*Introduce children to Jesus Christ by immersing them in the Gospels.
*Arm children to walk with God on their own.
Our church family takes the nurturing and training of children very seriously. Our Kids Ministry will attempt to provide Godly instruction and a relational network in which children can develop friendships with leaders and peers that encourage them to walk out their Christian commitments in everyday life. The role of the church family in the training of our children attempts to supplement what each family is already doing within their homes – realizing that parents are the primary source responsible for the love, nurture, training and discipline of their children.
We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in a child in the same way He dwells in adults (although He may look and sound different coming through a child’s grid). With that in mind, we believe that children can have a personal and life-changing relationship with God and that they can effectively operate in all the spiritual gifts. Children are warriors with little feet!
As Kids Ministry Leaders we desire to:
SHOW God’s Love and
TEACH kids Jesus’ way so they can
ACCEPT Jesus as Lord of their life and have a
RELATIONSHIP with Him forever!
Children are an important part of our church family!
In Kids Ministry they will:
