SEEDS is a ministry for children that teaches
them the gospel and encourages practical discipleship
through small group gatherings.
The children memorize God’s word, sing God-centered songs, and learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Children 4 years old through 6th grade meet each Wednesday during the school year (Aug. 23 – May 31, 6:30 -7:45 PM).
We want our kids to be mighty in the Word of God so we spend time teaching them from small portions of scripture as well as teaching them the storyline of the entire Bible. After the large group teaching time, the kids are split up into their individual age groups and have a follow up discussion on the lesson at an age appropriate level. The most important things we teach them is how everything in the Bible is meant to point us to Jesus and His love for us displayed through his death and resurrection on our behalf.
Jesus told a parable about a sower sowing seeds into different soils (Matthew 12, 13; Mark 4; Luke 8). Some of the soils rejected the SEEDS, some had some growth but eventually died off, but one soil received the seed and produced grain. The seeds represented the Word of God, and the soils represented people’s hearts. Our desire is to cast the SEEDS of God’s word onto the hearts of these children all the while praying for their hearts to be soft and receptive of God’s word. We will labor diligently to this end, but always remembering that, “Neither he who plans nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.” (1 Corinthians 3:7)
We want the church to be full of families worshiping together and growing together in the gospel. We want the church to be full of families serving one another in love and unity. And we want the church to be full of families eager to invite their friends and neighbors to a relevant, engaging Christ-centered experience for everyone.
