To bring kids to full devotion to Christ. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ,he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come." - 2 Cor. 5:17 NIV
(1) To teach biblical truths in a child-targeted, relevant, and creative way in a Large Group setting, and (2) to model loving, biblical community in a Small Group, where life change happens best. By threading the ministries through intentional shepherding from K-12th grade, there will be a seamless transition from Children's to Junior High to Senior High to Adult, creating a common thread of discipleship and small groups. Intentional shepherding is developing a relationship by modeling community and authenticity, where children trust and feel safe to be drawn toward the truth of God and moved toward salvation and spiritual growth.
