Children // Niños

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.’” Matthew 19:14

two_girlsGod loves all children, and we believe God calls us to love, protect, and nurture them.

Children are spiritual beings, born with the essential knowledge of God’s presence and with the potential for spiritual experiences with God. We strive to model God’s unconditional love for all God’s children, and we believe children and youth are to be shown and taught the meaning of the Christian faith.

We understand that children and their families are diverse in size, ethnicity, age, culture and traditions. We believe all families should be affirmed, celebrated, and supported.

We invite and encourage children and their families to learn and grow as they become active participants in our church community. Church for families and their kids is fun. Join us!

O God of all children and their families, help our congregation to be open to the many possibilities for family ministries within our congregation. Help our congregation to be an open door through which all families can come to know you. Let hospitality, graciousness, love, and kindness be our guide as we plan and work on behalf of children and families in our congregation and in our community. Amen.
