Bringing Up Children
Everyone wants his or her child to have a good education and to be physically fit and healthy. Everyone wants his or her child to be loved and safe. But we also need to provide for our children moral and spiritual education to become productive, responsible, and contributing members of our society.
However, in today’s competitive culture it is easy
to forget about moral and religious education.
think of getting into a good college and making sure
they get good jobs. We get them on the best sports
teams. Becoming a moral and spiritual person also
requires practice, preparation and above all, choices.
Our church is committed to educating the children
of our community in the moral and spiritual truths of
Christianity that brings balance to their lives.
There is a saying of Jesus: “…seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone
who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who
knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8).
We are all seekers. Come join us as we seek to know
ourselves and God and new ways to serve God.
We invite you and your children to our church. For the children there are church school classes and our children’s choirs. For you there are also opportunities to learn and practice faith, to volunteer in many community service projects of the church. And for both there are many family activities of our church. We’ll help you bring that balance into their lives and yours.
