“He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And He said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.'” Matt 18:2-5
God has called us to minister to children. From age three up to pre-teens, God is forming a child’s personality and spiritual growth. Children are not simply “the church of the future”, they are the church now, included and gifted by the Holy Spirit.
Our ministry touches the lives of children in school, at home and in the community. We want them to know Jesus, God the Father and the Holy Spirit, and to learn to share their faith and serve others. Our hope is that they will be confident in their unique abilities and spiritual gifts. Developing in prayer, in healthy relationships, and connected to the body of Christ; our children will be leaders who will make a difference in their world.
Children’s ministry is available at Grand Valley Christian Centre each Sunday morning following the worship.
