Children’s Ministries holistically addresses the spiritual needs of the younger generation of our local church family (0-18 yrs), in a quest to make Jesus Relevant to them.
To help and encourage the children to develop a personal relationship with God.
To help Make Jesus Relevant in the lives of every child. To nurture and empower the children as they engage in God’s service and become confident leaders who can impact on their local community.
OUR ACTIVITIES AND TRAINING
Sabbath School programs: Every Saturday, 9:30am – 10:45 am (0-18yrs)
Activities designed to stimulate and encourage exploration of the Bible and the application of the lessons learnt to each child’s day-to-day life. Like in the educational system, Sabbath School is broken down into classes, which have been designed to reach each child at his/her level. These classes are:
Beginners (0-2 years),
Kindergarten (3-5 years),
Primary (6-9 years),
Junior PowerPoints(10-14 years),
Cornerstone (15 – 18 years).
