Sunday School/Children Church Ministry2018-02-07T20:38:07+00:00

We minister to the spiritual needs of our children through our children’s ministry. The need for this ministry is evident in that many young people reach adulthood and decide not to follow Christ. They had not been prepared to accept him as their Savior. One reason for this is that some churches do not have an effective ministry to children. They do not have a ministry to help them receive Jesus into their lives.
Role of our children’s ministry
Our children’s ministry is active and has a great opportunity for activities that assist the church in spreading the gospel. Children of non-Christians are invited to our children’s ministry. Children can make friends, parents can make friends, and the non-Christian friends are invited to our additional church activities, such as small group meetings and worship services.
Children’s ministry helps our church growth by making it easier for new people to attend services. Parents are able to listen to the messages without distractions. They are confident that their children are loved, and that they enjoy spending time at church and making new friends. In
We want visitors, including parents as well as children, to enjoy the visit. We want parents to be able to participate in the worship and to listen to the sermon, and we want the children to learn something in a positive environment.
Our children’s ministry helps the church’s biological growth because it teaches children about their Savior. It gives them facts and experiences that help them learn about and respond to Jesus. The existence of our children’s ministry helps validate the importance of children within the church. As a result, children feel welcomed and loved at church.
Our children’s ministry brings adults and children together who might not otherwise get to know each other. This contributes to the building of bonds within the body of Christ. It also brings children together with others their own age, encouraging long-term friendships.
The goal of our children’s ministry is to lead children toward knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Bible teaching to a specific age group (Deut. 31:12). It means a wiggly four-year-old can discover great biblical truth by acting out a Bible story, completing dot-to-dot pictures, singing fun songs, and obeying parents. During the same hour, senior adults may discuss whether their relationship with their spouse or responses to daily crises reflects their trust in God.Both age groups leave Sunday school with specific applications for the week.

and trains laity for leadership. It’s difficult to say who benefits more, the teacher or the student. The teacher’s Bible knowledge and care grows… his or her life is changed… a stretching occurs as leadership skills are developed. Our Sunday school is discipleship. Every shepherd/teacher must have a desire to see each student in his/her flock have a spiritual life change. Since discipleship is “teaching to obey all I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:20), it’s not merely teaching facts, but teaching obedience. Sunday school is the group discipleship that is entry-level. It’s the “next step” after attending morning worship.

With the work, family and activity schedules of many church members, it is easier to come to church one hour earlier or love one hour later than to arrange another night out during the week. Also by having it on Sunday the children can be taught while the adults are learning.

our church into caring groups. The teacher becomes a shepherd for the class, an extension of the pastor’s ministry. Where the pastor finds it impossible to know all the needs of the congregation, Sunday school teachers (shepherds) know when someone is absent or hurting and can express love personally.

the church in prayer and relationships. From the preschool class through all the adult classes, prayer is directed toward the specific needs of the class members. Fellowship and informal conversations flow easily in small groups where care is expressed and people know your name and your needs.

on outreach to peers and friends. In a small group setting, where warmth and love flow and topics are non-threatening, class members are encouraged to invite fellow-employees or friends from school. Class socials and activities can focus on community outreach through social or ministry events.

the church do all the above with consistency. It is one of the most consistent programs in the church. It doesn’t stop for the summer and rarely for holidays. Sunday after Sunday its dedicated staff leads the church in this most important ministry.
