At Greater CBC, OUR KIDS ARE GREAT!

AT CREATER CHARITY BAPTIST CHURCH, WE BELIEVE THAT CHILDREN'S MINISTRY IS ...

1ST => Partnering with parents

  • Parents are designed to be and usually are the primary influence in a child’s spiritual formation. Therefore…
  • If we are not intentionally partnering with them, then most of what we do is fairly irrelevant in the spiritual life of the child.
  • It doesn’t matter what model you gravitate toward (traditional children’s ministry, Orange, D6 . . . whatever) children’s ministry is family ministry; family ministry is children’s ministry. And we can forge effective partnerships in any model. The best model is more about the environment and leadership of your church.

 

2ND => To Guide Kids

  • In the end, both parents and those of us in the church are guides. Of course, we need to do all we can to influence children in their faith – and what we do (or don’t do) most definitely influences them – but all of us have a free will to choose, and one day all of us do.

3RD => Toward A HEART For God

  • Ultimately, spiritual formation is about the heart. This is why:
    • It is mentioned hundreds of times times and in many different contexts throughout scripture (it’s a great study to do for your devotions – here’s a list of everywhere it’s mentioned)
    • We are told: “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.’ Proverbs 4:23
    • The “heart” (in scripture) generally encompasses our thinking, our will and our emotions.
  • We want the hearts of our kids to lean toward God in all areas of their life so that everything they do is influenced “toward God”.

You may have noticed that HEART is capitalized in our definition. That is because there are 5 areas we can focus on (H.E.A.R.T.) to help us “guide kids toward a HEART for God” in partnership with parents. Here are links to these posts:
