CHURCH OF THE SAVIOUR CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

Children’s ministries at Church of the Saviour encourage each child (infant-grade 6) to become active participants in their faith, church, and community. We love and invest in our children at Church of the Saviour  because they are the current and future leaders of our church. We strive, every day, to help kids remember that they are loved by God, and loved by us!

Kid’s Ark Ministry provides childcare for organizations within the church and gives parents the opportunity to participate in ministry with the assurance their children are in safe, healthy, and loving Christian environment.  It is our goal to support parents, nurture the children and develop a sense of a Christian fellowship full of grace.

Our Mission:

Partner with parents and lay a spiritual foundation by teaching our kids to:
Love God – Love Others – Show Love in Action.

Vision:

To provide a secure, nurturing ministry for children where Biblical truths are taught in a Christ-centered, interactive, fun and safe environment in which your child will learn and build lasting relationships.

Values:

There is no greater investment than investing in the life of a child. Our staff considers it a privilege and a high calling to serve your family and show the love of Jesus to your kids. We take this responsibility seriously and require that all volunteers serving with us pass a comprehensive background check and interview prior to joining our team. Rest assured that your children are in safe, responsible hands.

God of Plenty . . . Playtime with God

Advent is defined as the arrival of a notable person, thing or event and so during Advent Season we come together to celebrate the arrival of our Saviour. Among the plentiful gifts of the season are the many reminders God wants to be with us every day, in every way. My prayer for you and your family is that you will use this season to move from studying the bible to having a relationship with Jesus by spending some time hanging out with “The Word”.

Two thousand years ago, God gave us His living word in the human personage of Jesus; although the bible has always been true

and yet, we often forget the Word of God is plenty more – it is ALIVE!Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” John 1:14. The primary purpose of reading the bible is not to perfect the art of scripture memorization or pick it apart in small devotional chunks. Let’s use this season to mediate/marinate/soak in the living word; let it come alive in your daily life. Try this – pick one book, just one book, of the bible from the new testament to read every day for a month. Just read it –out loud– nothing else; allow yourself to become part of the story.

In December, take time to immerse yourself (and your families) in the story of the Living Word. Make some room for some playtime with Jesus through experiencing “The Word” and joining in the ministry events available.
