Children’s Ministries provides resources for leaders and teachers for the following ministries:
  • Family Friendly Church
  • Children’s Church
  • Children’s Bible Studies and/or Baptismal Lessons
Children’s Ministry can be more than a Sabbath morning class. Studies have shown that the fastest-growing churches are those that offer multiple ministries for children and advertise them to the public. George Barna, in his book Transforming Children into Spiritual Giants, states that if a child does not make a decision to choose Christ as his personal savior, the likelihood that a decision will ever be made decreases dramatically as the child matures.

It is because of the importance of reaching children that we strive to reach them each day with the glad news that they have a personal savior that loves them.
