Welcome To The
Our Children’s Ministry is a collaboration of all departments, auxiliaries and ministries that touch the very fabric of the children of the Church of God in Christ. Our Children’s Ministry enables leaders to focus on ministry support when working with Children, and also allows children to take advantage of all of the various ministry opportunities made available by the Church of God in Christ and those that partner along with us.
Children are an inheritance from the LORD. They are a reward from Him. With these rewards also come responsibilities. As stewards of God’s children, parents are responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
We the church, also have a responsibility toward children; we are to creatively minister to their spiritual needs through the word of God. If we want our children to grow up with a solid Christian foundation, it is essential that we invest time in them while they are young.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it Proverbs 22:6.
Our goal is to provide training for children everywhere through an extensive range of auxiliaries, programs and activities. The Children’s Ministry of the Church of God in Christ works to serve the children of our church by helping them to learn biblical principles, understanding of the Christian faith, and lead them to Christ.
If you want to reach children and families outside your church walls, we suggest to mobilize volunteers and staff to expand your ministry. Now that school is back in reaching children and families should be easier. Here are a few ideas:
Get out the fun stationery and colored gel pens and write some notes. Children love getting mail. Try mobilizing volunteers to send notes to alll of your children.
Pick Up the Phone
A phone can be used for something other than texting and scrolling social media! The point of the call is not to get them back in the building. Instead, find out is there anything the church can do for them?
Think Out of the Box
Instead of trying to get everyone together at your church, recruit a few families to host a picnic at a local park or their backyard. Maybe even meet at a Dairy Queen.
Small Acts of Kindness
The church has been presented with new opportunities and challenges. Many have said that everything is magnified during this difficult time, including small acts of kindness. So, spread the joy, involve volunteers in spreading the love as you care for your children and families inside and outside of your church.
