Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Proverbs 22:6 exhorts us to “Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their lives.” These principles are the foundation of the Maranatha Bible Church Children’s Ministry. We believe that children are not only the “church of tomorrow;” but they are the church of today!
Young children are particularly receptive to the Word of God. This ministry seeks to provide guidance for children and help them grow into an understanding of Christ. Children are encouraged to develop a personal relationship with Jesus and accept Him as Lord and Savior of their lives. We teach them that being a Christian is a lifestyle, not just something they do on Sundays and Wednesdays.
We offer several activities focused on younger children. The Cherubim Choir, for ages 2 - 9, teaches our youngest children to worship and minister through songs for the Lord. Our Nursery Ministry, The Ark, provides a secure, loving and fun place to both physically and spiritually nurture children ages 6 months - 5 years, teaching them about Jesus while their parents worship and participate in ministry. There are also age-appropriate Bible Study classes on Sundays and Wednesdays. Our Children’s Ministry provides a fun-filled environment that makes even the littlest ones look forward to going to church!
