An Exciting Update on Children's Ministry at Shepherdstown:
After much prayer, Embark is a word that God has inspired for the new theme for our Children’s Ministries. We want kids to embark on their relationship with Jesus Christ by learning about those who have gone before them. Hebrews 11 is often referred to as the “Hall of Fame” passage in the Bible. It lists key people in the Bible who have put their faith in action. In Hebrews 12, the writer challenges us by saying, “Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses. Let us throw off everything that hinders us and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Fixing our eyes on Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of faith (Hebrews 12:1-2).”
We are learning the foundations of the Bible. Stories about normal people; people who have had problems, setbacks, and everyday challenges. Our hope is as children learn these stories, they will find confidence in themselves as they embark on their journey as a follower of Christ.
When children leave this ministry, there are some key questions we hope they can begin to answer:
● Who is God?
● What is in the Bible and how do I read it?
● How do I begin and sustain a relationship with Jesus Christ?
We ask that you keep this ministry in prayer as we Embark on a new journey together!
