Children & Family Ministry April 2018

It has been a little over a month since I’ve joined the staff here at Cedar Hills, and it has been far and away a tremendous experience. Everyone has been extremely friendly and absolutely helpful as Alisse and I have made the transition. We were excited by the various Children’s ministries on our visits but now that we get to experience everything hands-on, we can’t help but to realize how blessed we are to be a part of the ministry.

We’re so thrilled for what’s ahead of the ministry and how God will be using us and the ministry for His glory!

One of the most obvious things we can say about the ministry is the incredible value that the volunteers play, and how passionate they are about serving the Kingdom of God. No matter the background of the child, whether they are new or have been coming a while, each child leaves feeling loved. Which echoes our goal as a ministry, since above all we seek to embody 1 John 4:19, which states, “We love because He
first loved us.” For it is out of love that discipleship will blossom most, and to see these little hearts overjoyed, is a sight to be seen. Even over a month’s time, we’ve been able to see such growth in the kids.

Keep an eye-out, as it is not just a popular cliché that a mind of a child is like a “sponge,” they truly grow faster than any age group on this earth. Let us be a church that authentically models the love of Christ and personifies the foundations of our faith.
