SDMICHRISTIAN LIFE MINISTRY

                                                     Hearing children praise God can be a powerful experience


“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
Mark 10:14


Children are welcome and an important part of our family. Beginning with newborns we have a staffed and fully equipped nursery available during the Sunday morning service. Sunday mornings also has Son Beams for pre-schoolers and Children's Church for children from grade 1 to 5 to attend during the service.

The Penticton Church of the Nazarene recognizes that children are important to the future of our church and to society as a whole. Children are like little sponges and soak up both good and bad information and habits.  It is our prayer that we will feed the children on God's word, show them God's love, and provide a safe environment as they learn to love God.

Show Them Jesus
Even young children should be shown the power and love of God.

Preschoolers can be difficult to teach. A lesson plan often has to go out the window when it becomes apparent the children stopped paying attention a long time ago. The temptation can then be to throw your hands up, and decide to simply keep the children occupied, without any real spiritual formation. However, with the proper teaching methods, young children are able to understand simple truths about God that lay the groundwork for future teaching.

By involving children directly in the lesson, or using an active example to explain the lesson, preschoolers can understand simple concepts. Not only this, but the lives we live everyday and the ways we interact with the children can be living demonstrations of God’s love.

The vision that fuels our work in Children’s Ministries grows out of Jesus’ words in Mark 10:14, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” In the midst of a consuming ministry to adults, Jesus regularly ministered to children. We believe the future of the church depends on effective ministry to children today.

Kids Reaching Kids Is Impacting Our World

Over the past two years, over $375,000 raised through various Kids Reaching Kids Mission Offering Project efforts have been distributed, and are currently impacting the lives of children all across the globe. In the past year the children in the Penticton Church of the Nazarene successfully raised enough money to pay for a well in Africa.
