Children’s Ministry: The Promiseland Goal
Our goal is to have our children come back week after week because they enjoyed their visit so much that they can’t wait to return. We want them to have FUN in Promiseland. While kids keep coming back for the FUN, we can accomplish our mission by continuing to nurture and teach them spiritually. In order to make our children’s ministry the best hour of a child’s week, we have to remember, to add the FUN! And remember the fun factor affects adult volunteers, too!
The goal of Promiseland is to develop children in to fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. What this means is that our kids grow up to love God, are actively serving His purposes, and are in process of growing to honor God in all areas of their lives. Willow Creek Community Church designed a program called “The Five G’s” which guides believers toward growing into Christ-likeness and becoming fully devoted followers of Christ.
We altered these basic principles to become kid-sized and use them throughout Promiseland.
THE FIVE-G’S ARE GRACE, GROWTH, GROUPS, GIFTS, AND GOOD STEWARDSHIP.
