Our #1 Job

As a parent and as a ministry to children, our #1 job is to teach our kids a love for God’s Word.   Along with that love for God’s Word, comes a love for God and others. Unfortunately many kids who attend church, do not know the Bible well enough to tell someone about it.

Our children are not the church of tomorrow, they are the church TODAY! Let’s equip them to do so.

Mark Harper from SuperChurch.com writes:

Biblical Illiteracy is at an all time high in America.
When I talk to professors at Bible Colleges they tell me that new students seeking theological degrees know little to nothing about the Bible.

Is this a problem?
It’s more than a problem – It’s a crisis.

Harper goes on to say:

The problem is clear; kids are not learning the Bible.
The good news is there is a solution for this crisis.
The Solution is: Teach More Bible.

Why do we need to read the Bible?
Christianity is a relationship with Jesus Christ and the purest way to fellowship with Christ is to read His words.

Peter said it like this, “Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation.”
The Word of God is nourishment for our soul.

Many of the children attending KidZone may only receive one meal a week from God’s Word.  The Bible is God’s rescue plan for us and Jesus is the hero!  Spend time reading the Bible daily with your children.  Make it fun. Make it exciting.  Read it with passion.

We want to hear from you.  Share with us how your family reads the Bible at home.
