Whether you’re new here or have been around for a while let me welcome you to the children’s ministry of Fox Creek Christian Church! Though the term “Children’s Ministry” is relatively new in the church’s vocabulary, the concept is not. Jesus made it very clear just how important children were to Him and to the Kingdom of God (Matthew 19:14). Because Jesus, himself, placed so much value on children, we feel they are pretty important too.
George Barna, one of the world’s leading statisticians said in his book, Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions-Why Children Should Be Your Church’s #1 Priority, “Moral foundations of children are generally determined by the time the individual reaches age nine. Our research confirms a parallel outcome in the spiritual dimension: By age nine, most children have their spiritual moorings in place.” More than ½ of those who will accept Christ do so by the age of 12.
With these things in mind, it is vital for us as
individual families and as a church to work together to provide our children
with the best foundation upon which to build their lives. This is one investment that is definitely
worth the returns!
