Mark 10:14 tells us that Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
We Love God’s Kids!!!
At Spirit of Joy, we recognize that children are not only our future, but they are our PRESENT! Our Children’s Ministry focuses on teaching God’s Love to our children in many fun ways. They might not even know that they are learning – they just think they are having fun with friends. We believe that the best way to teach TO children is by having fun WITH them!
Our children are amazing gifts from God and watching their faith is such an incredible blessing to all!
“Raise up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.”–Proverbs 22:6
Kids in Worship
We love to see our children in worship; so during the contemporary worship service, we bring them up front for the sending song so they can join the praise team in making music for God using simple musical instruments.
Our congregation has also been blessed by wonderful Christmas and Easter performances from our kids. It’s always hard to tell who loves the “performances” the most— the kids performing them or the congregation watching them.
Vacation Bible School
Each of the past five years we have been blessed with a week of awesome learning and fun with 50 to 60 incredible children from both our SOJ family and our community, as well as over 30 volunteers. Children and volunteers alike have reported being moved by the Vacation Bible School experience. We are so excited to see how this ministry will continue to grow.
