Yes… I’m trying to sound smart.
The word “philosophy” conjures up images of intelligent, well-educated people having deep discussions to better understand the meaning of life. Let me be clear: I want to make sure the people in my church better understand ministry to children. So, I developed this philosophy of ministry to articulate why we do what we do:
Welcome to, our Children’s Ministry Program for ages birth – 5th grade. Around her, we take children and ministering to them very seriously. We know that children are the church of tomorrow, but they are also the church of today. That’s what our Children’s Ministry is all about – training kids now!
The Children’s Ministries is set-up as one department, allowing us to develop and maintain a consistent flow of ministry with our church from ages birth – 5th grade. Each level builds and prepares young people for the next step. We want to teach the Word of God to every age group at their own level, while preparing them for the next class and a lifetime of service for our Lord.
By presenting the Word of God to children in an exciting way that they can understand, and by leading them into a relationship with Jesus, there can be a generation that grows up loving God with all their heart.
But, the Children’s Ministry Staff can’t accomplish this alone! We want to champion YOU: THE PARENT… Each week in our E-newsletter, we will have important information that they have learned at church. Take time during the week to instill these concepts in your child. And then take time to show them how to apply these ideas to everyday life. You will not only grow closer as a family, but you will see your child become spiritually stronger!
This information is included in our parents’ information brochure and will grace the WWW on our church’s website. It’s also something that our entire children’s ministry team understands… we constantly keep it in front of them. If this helps you, use some of the content to create your own.
