Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and went away. Matthew 19:13-15
This very familiar passage of scripture is a beautiful portrait of a gospel-centered, grace filled ministry to our youngest generation. This is an exciting picture of Redeemer Kids. Have you noticed the many families with children that come every week?
I believe children’s ministry is the most exciting ministry in the church to partner with. We have an exciting opportunity to assist families in building a spiritual foundation that will lead their children to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. Statistics tell us that a person is most receptive to trusting in Christ prior to the age of 14. Aware of this, the hour or so we have each week with our kids becomes more significant, more intentional, more gospel focused, while relying completely on God’s grace. Let the children come.
We have a vibrant vision, bold prayers and exciting hope for Redeemer Kids. This ministry is organic, growing with new life and we must grow with it. Children are a high value at Redeemer. Let the children come and do not hinder them.
Will you partner with us in bringing a new day to our children’s ministry?
We are asking you to give of yourself and your volunteer time to the best hour of the week for children. There is a specific place waiting for you—a place made to fit your strengths, your spiritual gifts, and your time. Let the children come and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.
