Philosophy

Come, Grow, and Go

-Come

 Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’” Matthew 19:14 (NIV)

We want kids to be excited to come to church. We only have about an hour with each your children, so we want to make it count! Our goal is to make church one of the most exciting parts of their week, they are begging for more and dragging you to church!

-Grow

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7 (NIV)

As Christians, we should always be growing in our faith and our knowledge of Christ. This is no different for our kids. We want our kids to continue to grow in their knowledge and love for God throughout their time in Oak Grove Kids. Every week, our kids will be continuing to grow in their knowledge and love with curriculum and messages specifically geared toward their age level. We do not “dumb down” our messages for kids, each lesson is prayerfully thought out so that they will GROW!

-Go

“He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.’” Mark 16:15

According to the Barna Group, only 6% of Christians come to know Christ after they turn 18. That means that 94% of Christians came to know Christ as a child. This is a sobering statistic that pushes us to tell as many kids as we can about Christ! At Oak Grove Kids, we believe that some of the best people to talk to kids about this is kids! Kids can relate and talk to their friends in a way that some adults can’t. We want to help and come alongside our kids and help them learn how to share the Gospel with their friends, family, and neighbors.
