[Jesus] called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:2-4
Children are such an important part of the body of Christ. After all, they are the future of the Church. That is why we have many opportunities for children to learn about Jesus and for families with children to get together for fellowship, ministry and fun!
People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He 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 10:13-16
One of our most fruitful ministries to children is our Sunday School Ministry.
LHCC offers Sunday School for children ages 3 thru 12 years old. Sunday School begins when the children are dismissed from the service by Pastor Peter and continues until the end of service. The age groups offered are 3 & 4 years old, 5 & 6 years old, 7-9 years old and 10-12 years old. The children are taught by trained adult teachers along with adult helpers under the direction of Matthew Porter. Each lesson is filled with God’s word, music, crafts, games and snacks. It is a wonderful time of learning about the Bible while enjoying the fellowship of other children.
Join us every Friday night at Living Hope Christian Church from 7-8:30 pm (starting October 2017) for another season of fun, friendship, and fellowship as we learn about God’s love for us and how to live for Him!
