MISSION
Children’s Ministries' mission is about developing programming that fosters the faith of children, aged from birth through to fourteen.  Children’s Ministries works to provide activities and environments for parents and their children that will connect them to a lifelong, loving relationship with Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him. Our main wish is that every child may encounter Jesus as personal Saviour and best Friend.

HOW WE SERVE

  • 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 we implement safeguards to protect children from physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse; and choose volunteers with high spiritual and moral backgrounds
 
  • 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 Sabbath Schools, and other childrens programs at adult evangelistic functions
