The children’s ministry of the local church is a crucial aspect of the church. Many churches perceive children’s ministry to be merely a baby-sitting service while the adults are taught and edified. They fail to realize the fact that the Kingdom of God belongs to the children as well (Mark 10:13-16). In addition, they fail to recognize the necessity of instructing the children in the Word of God. Scripture must be the central focal point of an effective children’s ministry. In other words, curriculum for the children should be more than just coloring; it should also instruct the children in the Word of God.
Here at Grace Bible Church, we use a curriculum that takes the children systematically through the Bible. In addition to the Sunday school classes, the children also gather on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 for AWANA.
