Purpose of Children’s Ministry
Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.
We are called by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to love our children and to allow God to work through us to bring each and every child to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. The children entrusted to our spiritual leadership are the very future of the church and we are commanded to give them the tools to be the Godly leaders that they will one day be called to become.
