Children are a blessing from the Lord and with these blessings also come responsibilities. As stewards of God’s children, parents are responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, but here at Dove Creek we believe churches have a responsibility toward children, too. We want to provide an environment in which children are safe, are taught at an age-appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. Research has clearly substantiated the Bible verse:
“ Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” -Proverbs 22:6
Children need help in learning how to navigate in today’s world … and they have so much of life ahead of them. Faced with the uncertainties of this world it is more important than ever that we instill in our children a rock solid faith in the Solid Rock. Children need the touch of Jesus and we recognize that children are a part of today’s church, not merely the church of tomorrow. Serving children through children’s ministries helps plant and secure the gospel into the next generation for as it has been said “the gospel is always only one generation from extinction.”
