Family Life Ministries
At Christ’s Covenant Church, we believe that children are a precious gift from God. Throughout Scripture we find that the primary responsibility of training children and leading them to Christ belongs to the parents (Deut. 4:9-10, Prov. 13:24, Prov. 22:6, Eph. 6:4, Col. 3:20-21). Parents are called to train their children up in the Lord and lead them with a godly example that makes Christ and the Gospel attractive to a fallen world.
With that in mind, we also believe that the local Church plays an important role in the discipleship and development of children. Through the preaching of the Gospel and through a loving nurturing community of believers, we seek to make the Gospel precious to the next generations. We currently provide both children’s and student ministries to encourage our children and teens to treasure Christ and to make Him known to the world.
The chart above provides a visual representation of the role of Family Life Ministries at CCC. We teach children directly through our programs, classes, and activities, while we also teach parents directly through conferences, one-on-one meetings, and provision of resources. Ultimately, however, as the chart highlights, discipleship will be most frequent and most effective as it takes place in individual homes.
