Our Ministry Philosophy
Our NextGen team of ministers is here to encourage, support, and help facilitate the spiritual formation of children. We believe that God intends to use parents, grandparents, and other influential adults to teach children primarily in the home. While children are invited to attend age-specific Bible teaching in the church setting on Sundays and Wednesdays, our goal is to help parents feel equipped and resourced to "impress these things" on the hearts and minds of their kids everyday of the week.
Our basic beliefs include:
- Jesus is our only source of forgiveness for sin - we want kids to know and understand this
- The Bible is God's voice and message - we want kids to value this
- The home is the primary tool God uses to teach spiritual truths - we want to support this
- Kids learn to worship by watching others - we want to provide opportunities for this
Find Your Place
There are many ways for you to serve in the Preschool and Children Ministries at Columbus Avenue! If you have a heart for children and desire to point them to Jesus, we have a place for you. For the safety of our children and ministry, we require all volunteers to go through a screening process prior to working with our children. Please fill out these forms and return them to the Preschool & Children's Ministry Office as soon as possible.
