Ultimately, we want the same things for our kids that we want for ourselves: we want them to be disciples of Jesus: one who knows WHO they are (God’s kid, loved, and nothing can ever change that) and then WHAT to do (representing their Father, the King, by acting on his behalf and putting the world back together).
As parents, God has given you the incredible responsibility of impressing a love for God on the hearts of your children (Deuteronomy 6:5–7). These impressions best occur as a natural overflow from those who are seeking to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and strength. Our hope is that children’s ministry will be congruent with what is being taught at home in order to create a holistic approach to spiritual formation, uniting what children learn in the home and what they learn at church so that each setting reinforces what was experienced in the other. Therefore, we will give parents the training, tools, and resources to build confidence to guide their children through authentic God experiences and Bible learning.
