CHILDREN'S MINISTRY
D.L. Moody said “When you save a child, you save a life—a whole life”. There is a season in a person’s life when they are most open to learning what it means to trust God. It’s a season—sometime between 4-14 years old—when people are more moldable than they will ever be in their lifetime. It’s when people are forming their understanding of the world, of relationships, of love, of God.  It’s a season when people are impressionable. We should be intentional about ensuring that they get the right impression.

What is rooted in the heart of a child is almost impossible to uproot in the life of an adult. There are many places to serve in Children’s Ministry with all different age groups. You can serve on Sunday mornings or evenings; on Wednesday night at Kid’s Klub; or at Vacation Bible School at the end of June. Contact Sandy Lynn Bober at 973-427-6960 X 166 if you are interested in serving our children.
