“Children are a gift from the Lord, they are a reward from him.” (Psalm 127:3). We get to witness how much of a blessing children are because they are gifts. We see their pure hearts, their small hands raised high in praise of Jesus, and Jesus’ love shining through them to their friends and leaders. Being active in the ministry is important in building their Christian spirituality as they grow up.
In our episcopal church, we believe that ministry is vital to children. We have the opportunity to provide unconditional love as well as resources to help them grow for the rest of their lives. Here are some of the reasons why child ministry matters.
Ministry is the best opportunity to accept Jesus. According to studies, children are more responsive to the Gospel than any other age group.
Ministry assists kids in learning to love others. Love your neighbor is the second-greatest commandment. Because it does not come naturally, we must teach it as a way of life.
Ministry encourages children to attend church. There’s nothing wrong with having a program that appeals to children’s interests, especially if it leads to more youngsters hearing the Gospel.
