Deuteronomy 6:4-7 is the Scripture passage our children’s ministry is built upon.


Children will grow to love Him more as they experience the beauty of the gospel.

(vv. 5-6) “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.”


The foundation of child discipleship is helping kids to learn about God and His ways.

(v.4) “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.”

“Rm 10:14 "How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?”


We are supposed to be in continual conversation with our children about the Scriptures.

(vv. 7-9) “Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."



We will do our part to create work opportunities that are fun & relationship building, as well as serving others.

July 16-19
