Being Young! By: Pastor J. L. Godbolt
Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.’ The word “train” means to narrow the path and to discipline. The word for “old” is zaw-kane, which means to mature. Jacob trained Joseph and he was a mature son as a teenager. It is the responsibility of the adults to narrow the path of our youth so that they mature in the things and ways of God.
The youth of our church are a blessing in so many ways, and yet they need much governance and guidance. They are gifted, energetic, inquisitive, and rambunctious. They have leadership potential and they are using those skills in several church activities. Your youth will find it easy to plug into several activities in our church structure.
Youth for Christ
Our youth ministry centers its teaching on how our children can live successful, God-filled lives. From nursery, children’s church, bible quiz, and praise dance, we strive to engage the next generation.
Children’s church is available to children from kindergarten through the 5th grade. This ministry is extremely important and is in place to provide young people a setting to encourage one another, pray, sing and listen to the Word of God being taught on their level.
Here at ReDeemed Christian Church of Fayetteville, we know that the youth of today are tomorrow’s church! Thus, our Children’s Church ministry exists to build strong foundations in our future leaders, our youth. These foundations are built through prayer, worship songs, interactive lessons, demonstrations, games and other activities. With these variations of teaching, the youth are provided age appropriate Bible-based teaching. As our vision is to educate as many as will come, we look forward to fellowshipping with you in the near future!
Nursery (ages 0 – 4)
Nursery services are available for our little members and visitors whose parents or guardians are attending church services. Children taken to the nursery must be signed in by a parent or guardian. They are provided with a snack and a lesson on a biblical principle. These services are provided to ensure that visitors as well as members may hear the Word of God, and so fussy or talkative little ones do not become a distraction to others.
