CHILDREN

In the book of Mark, the Bible tells us:  People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on 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.”
 
Jesus loved children. We do too.  Here at FBC Ripley, we are committed to partnering with you as a parent as you seek to build a spiritul foundation for your child. We believe parents are the biggest influence in their child’s life, and we want to equip you to raise them up in Christ.  Our vision is to create a safe, fun, and loving environment where kids can gather, grow, and go as they become lifelong followers of Jesus.
 
 
 
 
Gather– We want children to understand the
importance of gathering together regularly
to worship God and to learn what it means to
be united as a church. This part of our ministry
model takes place on Wednesday nights and
Sunday mornings during Corporate Worship.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Grow– We want children to grow in their understanding of
God and their faith in Him through meeting in smaller groups
with children their own age. This aspect of our ministry
model takes place on Sunday mornings during Sunday School.
 
 
 
 
 
Go– We want children to know the importance of sharing
their faith and experience living a missional life. This aspect
of our ministry takes place on Sunday nights as kids share
God’s love through music and other events where kids will
have the opportunity to serve God.
