We welcome your family to
the Children’s Ministry of Calvary Chapel Modesto. Our desire is that your
children will feel welcome, comfortable, and safe as they come to worship Jesus.
Our goal is to do all we can to minister to the individual needs of every child
God brings us. We love children and desire that everyone will “Grow in the
grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” 2 Peter 3:18.
In the Gospels we see the
special place that children hold in Jesus’ heart. He wants children to come to
Him and to learn to love Him. Our desire in Children’s Ministry is to reflect
Jesus’ heart towards all of the children that the Lord entrusts into our care.
We are here to make disciples for Jesus for life. Our goals are to help
children: Know God intimately, love God passionately and serve God selflessly.
In our ministry to
children we emphasize the teaching of God’s Word. 2 Timothy 3:15 says, “…from childhood you
have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
We believe that it is
important to teach children the Word of God, because that is what leads them into
a relationship with Jesus Christ. It also provides a firm foundation on which they
can build their lives. Our entire
ministry to children focuses on these simple things: teaching God’s Word,
leading children into a relationship with Jesus Christ, and helping them to
become His disciples. In doing this our children will be prepared for a
productive, fruitful, Christian life.
We are dedicated to children and
their growth in Jesus.
