How We Serve
Children’s Ministry Vision Statement –
JSUMC will be a church that provides a Children’s class that changes the child’s life by demonstrating God’s love and sacrifice by sharing with them the word of God, while allowing the children to learn that they may also share God’s word with others and be a testament to those around them.
Children’s ministry mission statement- To know that every child is welcome as God says in Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children. We teach that all children have the ability to go out into the world learning to serve, care, and grow in their faith through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
During these gatherings, the children have a fun bible lesson and participate in a craft that goes along with the morning’s lesson. The craft is an important part of the Bible lesson as it helps children learn by creating and then gives them the opportunity to share what they’ve learned with their friends and family. This helps reinforce the lesson in a friendly, fun, and safe Christian environment.
The Elevate children learn about God’s Bible teachings and how to apply them to their lives. We always have fun learning and trying new things with games, art, and constant conversation about their Christian faith. We are challenging our Elevate Kids to bring their Bibles each Sunday and Wednesday as they are learning the books of the bible as well as where to find them in the Bible. Our Elevate children are being constantly challenged and encouraged in love to grow in the truth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and use their most precious tool to do so, The Bible.
