Children

My child, do not forget my teaching,
but let your heart keep my commandments;
for length of days and years of life
and abundant welfare they will give you.
Proverbs 3:1-2
We had a wonderful week of Vacation Bible School! Thanks to Laura and Bob for coordinating, thanks to everyone who served during the week, thanks to all who prayed, thanks to all who cared for young children at home, thanks to all who gave toward the Mission Central project!
We believe that kids are central to what God is “up to” in the world. We believe that children have so much to give and so much to teach. We believe that caring for Jesus’ little ones is caring for Jesus.

And, we believe that the Word of God in all its wisdom will make a practical difference in our lives, in the lives of children, in the life of our entire community. We believe that fathers, mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, have valuable gifts and a priceless legacy to share with the coming generations. We believe that, as the body of Christ and the people of God, we are called to transform our world – starting with our community – with the grace of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

There’s lots ahead for children and families. Contact Laura, our children’s ministry director, for information or to help in the ministry.
