The Bible is clear that the call of Christian parents is to train and teach their children the gospel (Deut. 6:7, Eph. 6:4, Col. 3:21). We eagerly desire as a church to support parents in this effort. Although teaching and training children in the gospel is the greatest challenge and task parents have been given, God has provided many promises and reasons for faith in the process (see the Scriptures listed above; also 2 Cor. 9:8, 2 Pet. 1:3-4). God has also provided the local church to train parents and to join with them in this responsibility (Eph. 4:11). Several ministries exist in our church to help moms and dads fulfill their calling.
Our goal is to provide an environment that is safe and fun, but with the gospel as the defining emphasis of everything we do during these hours. We seek to do much more than simply provide childcare while parents attend the Sunday meeting.
