But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)
We love and value children, and see them as a vital part of our congregation! God is moving in our kids, and we are excited about the new curriculum that was written by pastor Jake and our Kids Ministry Director, Nikki Patterson. The focus of the curriculum–and our Kids Ministry in general–is to see kids empowered to know, grow, and show a real relationship with God.
We believe that having a vibrant and Spirit-filled Kids Ministry is vital to the life of our church. At the same time, it is parents who God has called to be the primary spiritual leaders of their children. Kids Ministry is not meant to take the place of the parents’ role at home, but to come alongside of them and help enhance the spiritual growth of their kids.
