Do you know what the objective of Kids Community is?
Why do we have Kids Community?
These are critical questions to have answered. There are so many models and intentions among churches; however, there is no question that Jesus encouraged ministry to children.
He says in Mark 10: 13-16, “Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
This ministry can include teaching the application of Biblical principles. It may provide entertaining activities and programming. It could organize a safe and secure environment. These are all important objectives to consider, but they are not the primary objective behind what we do.
The primary objective of our Kids Community is to partner with parents in the development of worshipful, relational, missional children.
Think about it: if parents were able to effectively lead and develop their children according to Jesus, not much else would be needed.
Parenting is a form of discipleship – God’s model for raising children. He says in Deuteronomy 6:7-9 that parents are to impress their own love for what He commands into their children. It would be counterproductive to build a ministry that takes that responsibility from its rightful place.

Spiritual development of one generation must be transferred to the next. This transfer takes place through mentoring and community. Faith and maturity are caught more than taught.
We want to help one another follow Jesus and better demonstrate His ways to all children. We believe what John 1:12 says, “To all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” We all can spiritually parent the next generation best by focusing on following Jesus ourselves.
