Discipleship and Fellowship
Our primary goal in children’s ministry is discipleship. When parents and grandparents place their children in our hands, they do it with the confidence that they will be led in theologically sound discipleship! I feel that we are on the right path at Oak Crest where children’s discipleship is concerned. The secondary goal is fellowship. As our children grow, I pray that they will come to rely on one another and hold each other accountable…that they encourage one another “being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of Christ.” I pray that their friendships will grow, and as they transition into their teenage years when so many difficult decisions are made, that they will turn to each other within our covenant community of believers for counsel and insight…that these brothers and sisters in Christ will also be friends. And cherish that friendship. So, as we start to add opportunities for fellowship beyond our regular discipleship, will you join us in praying that these are moments that will foster those friendships and our children will be knit together in love?
