Our Mission for Kidz Grove

Connecting kids and families to Christ and helping them become followers of him.

How do we do that:

1. Making church a fun and exciting experience for kids.
“I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”’ Psalm 122:1 NLT
 
 
2. Reaching children and their families who don’t have a relationship with Christ.
“For the Son of Man[a] came to seek and save those who are lost.” Luke 19:10 NLT
 
 
3. Partnering with families in their child’s spiritual growth.
5 “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 8 Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 9 Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:5-9 NLT
 
We are here for you in anyway we can be.
 
4. Helping Kids build meaningful relationships through small groups.
34 “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:34-35 NLT
 
5. Creatively presenting the timeless truths of the bible in an engaging culturally relevant, and age appropriate way.
“19 Even though I am a free man with no master, I have become a slave to all people to bring many to Christ. 20 When I was with the Jews, I lived like a Jew to bring the Jews to Christ. When I was with those who follow the Jewish law, I too lived under that law. Even though I am not subject to the law, I did this so I could bring to Christ those who are under the law. 21 When I am with the Gentiles who do not follow the Jewish law, I too live apart from that law so I can bring them to Christ. But I do not ignore the law of God; I obey the law of Christ. 22 When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some. 23 I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 NLT
 
6. Teaching life application, not just information.
22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:22
 
We want to be challenging Kids to live out these truths
 
7. Providing a safe and secure environment
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, will keep me safe. Psalm 4:8 NLT
 
We have a secure tag system in place for Child Check in and out to make sure children stay safe.
 
 
8. Empowering a team of people to use their gifts in ministry.
11 Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. 12 Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-12 NLT
 
If you feel the call to serve in Children’s Ministry we would love to talk to you more about it!
 
9. Equipping Kids to reach out and serve their generation for Christ.
19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[a] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Mathew 28:19-20 NLT
 
10. Excellence!
10 Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave,[a] there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom. Ecclesiastes 9:10 NLT
