“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” – Colossians 2:6-7
Our Children’s Ministry seeks to fulfill the mission statement of the church (Park Place glorifies God by making disciples of all nations1) by equipping parents to effectively disciple their children. The two verses above summarizes our desire for every child involved in the ministry at Park Place. First, we desire that every child comes to receive Christ Jesus the Lord by repenting of their sin and placing their faith fully in Jesus Christ, accepting the free gift of salvation that He offers. Once saved, we desire children to grow in biblical knowledge, love for the Lord, and obedience, becoming more and more grounded and established in the faith (rooted). Finally, we want to be faithful to teach the truth of God’s Word and rejoice in the fruit that it produces, as God will not allow it to return void.
