Our children’s ministry is now going to be called “Ripple” and we couldn’t be more thrilled. You may be asking yourself why are you so excited for the name change? Let us tell you!
Our ministry will be founded on Matthew 22:37-39 “Love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
A ripple grows out in concentric circles from the middle out. At each phase or circle in the ripple along the way, we will focus on children knowing who God is, Who He created them to be, and How He wants them to care for and be in Community. The goal is that once a child leaves Family ministries, they know God loves them and can be trusted with their life, and how they live matters to God and others.
In PreSchool we will focus on three truths: God Made Me, God Loves Me, Jesus Wants to be my Friend Forever.
In Elementary we will build on the PreSchool truths and add three more: I need to make the wise choice (Wisdom), I can trust God no matter what (Faith), and I should treat others the way I want to be treated (Friendship).
