Children are so important to Jesus and to our church. For this reason we have our children in service with us as a way of discipling our children.
We believe that children are not a distraction from true worship.
For those of us with children, training them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord is one of our primary calls as parents, and we believe that the preaching & teaching of the Word is an essential part of this calling.
The New Testament assumes that children are in the worship service and addresses them in the letters that are to be read during the corporate gathering, the hearing of God’s Word:
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. (Eph. 6:1; Col. 3:20)
Children have always been with their parents for the hearing and instruction of God’s Word.
There was not a word of all that Moses commanded that Joshua did not read before all the assembly of Israel, and the women, and the little ones, and the sojourners who lived among them. (Josh. 8:35)
Yes, we have toys, books and activities for the little ones so feel free to just come and take the opportunity to worship with your whole family.
Jesus said, “Leave the little children alone, and don’t try to keep them from coming to me, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
