Vision for 2017
Our heart for 2017:
This year, we have been inspired by the statement, "Fight for the faith of every kid at every phase" from the book, It's Just a Phase by Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy. We are passionate about loving and teaching your kids about Jesus, and our goal is to grow as a Kids Ministry by doing the following in 2017.
Make It Stick
As we ask ourselves, "How can we better partner with the Holy Spirit to connect what we are teaching to the heart of the child,?" we know that we must be continually innovating our ministry. We are striving to create active involvement for each child where understanding God's Word and His love is truly taking place. We also realize that we only have your children for a small part of their week, so it's our desire to create something that you can use a a family to spur on conversations, activities and FUN for the whole family!
Pull Them in Tighter
Church = Family , and we are excited that this year we have focused our efforts on increasing the safety and connection of our entire ministry. Safety is our first priority, and we started 2017 with moving all of Kids Ministry into our Kids Building with only one entrance. We also know that kids learn better when they feel safe AND connected, so it's our goal to create opportunities for your child and your family to connect to others through service elements, such as TEAM TIME, as well as Preschool Playdates, Family Nights and Lobby activities for your whole family.
Empower Them to Find the Value
We are excited to have a volunteer team who loves Jesus and loves kids! It is our goal this year to continue to train, equip and empower our team so that our kids ministry continues to grow in new and excellent ways & our volunteers grow and develop their God-given strengths and abilities.
