What does children and Family stand for
at the Church of the Living God?
“Children are the messages we will send to a time we may never see.”
Children and families are the foundation of our growing worshippers. The Church of the Living God seek out to encourage spiritual stability within our families - by immersing our children in an enriching educational environment that is steeped in solid biblical knowledge.
We are devoted to modeling Jesus Christ and sharing the gospel through the consistent nurturing, interactions of children, teachers and staff in classroom teaching, in praise and worship and activities that unite us with our neighbors and community.
Why Youth Ministry is Important in the Church of the Living God
Simply put, Youth Ministry is the Church's efforts to help each & every young person grow personally & spiritually.
Training young people to lead the cause of Christ, and apply Christianity to every area of life is what "youth ministry" is about. If we don't know that, the kids won't either.
Youth ministry is more than programs and events.
Youth Ministry is every effort by the Christian community to reach out to the youth with the love of God as revealed to us in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Youth Ministry is designed to help spiritually train and equip teens in a fun and Godly atmosphere to the Glory of God.
Youth Ministry is an umbrella term that describes the systematic attention the faith community gives to young people which enables them to reach their full God created potential. That is, everything the faith community is involved in that promotes both healthy development and faith growth in adolescents.
Youth Ministry works to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person and seeks to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the faith community.
Youth ministry is the Church in its pastoral concern, reaching out to young people to embrace their gifts and to walk with them in their process of becoming all they can be.
Youth Ministry is defined as the response of the Church to the needs of young people, fostering their faith in Jesus Christ and their communion with the Blessed Trinity, and drawing them into responsible participation in the life, mission and ministry of the Church.
Youth Ministry is fun, faith, and friends, usually with a little food added to keep our engines going!
Youth Ministry is a series of programs and activities to give young people a chance to participate in Church life, develop their own faith and spirituality, and discover new friendships
