Preparing our children to face the challenges of the future and building solid foundations in their lives is of utmost importance.
Teaching them the truth of God’s word is integral in shaping their thinking as declared in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in a way that he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Children's Church is held every Sunday morning in conjunction with the 09h30 Family Service.
Our aim is threefold:
Make it FUN
Our team of volunteers is comprised of people who are committed and called to teach God's Word.
Every Sunday they bring God's Word to children in a fun and exciting way. Every lesson is age specific and is geared at providing children with the excitement and enjoyment of teaching God's Word through fun activities, object lessons, crafts and worship
Make it SAFE
Your child's safety is of utmost important to us. We have structures and systems that create a safe environment, giving you peace of mind as a parent.
All our volunteers have completed or are busy completing the Christian Ministires fundamentals course, and are fully equipped to teach your children God's Word rightly divided.
You as a parent can be sure that every volunteer has your child's best interests in mind as they prepare every lesson.
Make it STICK
Investing in your child's future is important. Especially their spiritual future. Allowing your child to grow in the knowledge of the Lord has no value. It is our mission to facilitate their spiritual growth.
As a parent and church we need to put the correct support sturctures in NOW, to equip children for the future.
The results of the effort you put in now will only be seen later in life, but building that foundation starts at children's church.
Our curriculum is focused on education children about God's Word at an age appropriate level.
We want to set children up for success in the world as they learn to apply God's Word to their lives.
