Jesus openly welcomed the children of his time. Whether it was taking them in his arms and blessing them, or using them as examples in his parables, the importance of family and children with family can not be over emphasized. Our ministry to our youth is a priority.
We run an active Sunday School for children aged 3 - 12. We refer to our Sunday School as Children's Church, for the children do have a separate time of worship geared specifically for their age group. This worship often includes drama, discussion, questions and involves each member of the Children's Church before they break into various classes depending on their age, for further instruction. We are also in the process of adapting our church to create a children friendly section of the church where children can come and be before service.
We also offer a youth program, The CLB. The CLB is for youth aged 5 - 21, meets every Monday night. Based on the Cadet model of ministry, this large and successful organization instructs our youth in regards to spirituality and citizenship, and involves a strong and effective outreach into our community.
