OUR CHILDREN ARE VERY PRECIOUS
Welcome to Christ Centered House of God – Children’s Church Page. We begin every Children Church service with a brief overview of what God did at the beginning in the Book of Genesis with the Children.The book of Genesis is very vital to begin with our children because it taught the children what God did in the beginning and also shows humanity’s foundation where we began.
So What Time is the Children Church?
Our Children’s Church starts at 7:35 pm every Saturday and dismiss around 9:00 pm. Upon dismissal; the children joins the rest of the congregation for closing and Corporate prayer.
Why Children’s Church/Ministry is Important?
Did you know that more than ½ of the people that will believe in Jesus do so by age 12?
Did you know that by the time a child is 9 their basic moral foundation has been formed?
Did you know that by age 13 a child has formed their basic beliefs about the nature of God, the reliability of the Bible, the existence of an afterlife & the everlasting love of Jesus? Those were some troubling statistics to take in both as a mother and as a part of the leadership of Christ Centered House of God because of what you see with our young people today.
The Parent(s) Responsibility
As parents we have a huge responsibility before us appointed by God that should not be neglected or taken lightly. We are helping to raise up a future generation of young people that will hopefully impact their world for Christ.
The most incredible impact that was made on me was made as a child by my father who taught me and my sibling about the Bible – God’s Holy Word. The Bible was the first book we all learned to read. Such an impact have carried me through thus far; that is why as a mother, I know how vital it is for my own daughter (and all children) to learn about God at an early age; which will shape their lives and their future.
Every parents have a clear biblical mandate from God to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Eph. 6:4; Col 3:21). Therefore, at Christ Centered we believe that parents are to be the primary evangelists and spiritual mentor of their child/children. This is an on-going process accomplished through the parent’s godly example; through their godly living; thus modeling Jesus as they teach, reprove, correct and train their children in His righteousness. (2 Tim 3:16; Dt. 6:7)
Therefore, we seek to lovingly exhort and equip parents in this God given role and responsibility by providing this Christ Centered Children’s Church – so that our children too are learning about and growing in God. In addition, we will support parents by offering parenting classes, resources, and biblical counseling if required.
Since the scriptures call for strong Christian families that are growing and being molded through the ministry of the Body of Christ (Eph. 5-6); we seek to support and enhance the spiritual health of the home while never usurping the parental role and responsibility. Children are an important and valuable part of God’s Kingdom. Knowing what the Bible says about children will help you connect with God’s heart and the children in your lives, because they are a blessing.
“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
”Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate” (Psalm 127:3-5).
