'Nurturing children into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus'
The Children’s Ministries Department exists to develop the faith of children from birth through age fourteen, leading them into union with the church. It seeks to provide multiple ministries that will lead children to Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him, and as such cooperate with the Sabbath School Department and other departments to provide religious education to children.
To reach out, to nurture and draw children into a loving, productive and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ and with their church. It seeks to provide goal-oriented Spiritual education meant to: teach a grace orientation, stimulate an interest in Scripture, teach moral responsibility, involve youth in service, involve youth in mission outreach and encourage high self-regard.
We seek to fulfill our mission by developing the following:
Grace-oriented ministries, in which all children will experience the unconditional love of Jesus, find assurance of acceptance and forgiveness, and make a commitment to Him and develop their faith.
Inclusive ministries, in which the volunteers who minister and the children to whom they minister will be valued and involved regardless of race, color, language, gender, age, abilities, or socio-economic circumstances;
Leadership ministries, in which volunteers are empowered, trained, and equipped for effective ministry to children;
Service-oriented ministries, in which children are given opportunities for hands-on service to people in their neighborhood or city, which could establish a pattern of outreach to others that may well continue through life;
Cooperative ministries, which involve working in partnership with other ministries, such as family ministries, Sabbath School, and stewardship, to support and help parents develop the faith of their children.
Safe ministries, whereby our churches adopt safeguards to protect children from physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse; to choose volunteers with high spiritual and moral backgrounds; and to minimize the church’s liability; and,
Evangelistic ministries, in which children who are not enfolded in the church family will be introduced to the love of Jesus through outreach-programs such as: Vacation Bible Schools, children’s branch Sabbath Schools, Neighborhood Bible Clubs, and Story Hours.
Those who love God should feel deeply interested in the children and youths. To them GOD can reveal His truth and salvation. Jesus calls the little ones who believe on Him the lambs of his flock. He has a special love for an interest in children. The most prestigious gift that children can give to Jesus is the freshness of their childhood. [Reflecting Christp373]
