“Jesus said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’ And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:14-16
At the heart of the Kingdom Kids, New Life City children’s ministry, is the belief that children are part of the church, too. God can and does use them now for the work of His Kingdom. We believe they carry the same Holy Spirit within them that adults do. The children participate in worship with the whole congregation and are given opportunities to bless and pray for people during special outings. During class time, the children are taught from the Bible in a manner that targets the heart, not only the mind.
Child safety and security is an essential element of our ministry. All of our preschool, children’s ministry, and youth ministry workers are screened and must pass a comprehensive law-enforcement background check before they are allowed to work with our children. We also use a computer check-in system to ensure that only authorized guardians are able to pick up their children.
