From the introduction of the handbook:
Children praising God. Children expressing their faith in Jesus. Children knowing who Jesus is. It happened in the days when Jesus walked on this earth. It is happening today as well. What will we do? Will we encourage them and help them to grow in their relationship with God? Jesus sent money changers and merchants out of the temple area. But he did not send the children away, because their praises were ordained by God. And their praises are ordained today as well!
As the church, we need to provide a special place for the children. It is up to us to provide them with a place where they feel welcomed, loved and treasured. What are some of the characteristics of such a place? It will be a place where they:
- can worship wholeheartedly in ways they enjoy
- want to come because the Word of God is presented to them in creative ways
- grow spiritually
- experience God’s presence
- learn what it looks like to follow Jesus in their own lives
- can trust and know their teachers
- can talk about things that happen in their lives
- can find someone who will listen to them and pray for them
- a place where God is glorified
We, the church, can provide a place like that.
