Our Children’s Ministry at FBC Frankfort seeks to partner with adults who are raising children to teach our children first that God loves them, and second, that Jesus tells us to love God and love others as we love ourselves. (Mark 12:30-31) You will see this motto: “Love God. Love Others. Love Yourself.” painted on our mural that welcomes families to our 3rd floor Children’s Ministry Suite. It is depicted on the trunk of a tree to represent our intention to nurture children to flourish and grow into all God created them to be. (Psalm 1, Galatians 5:22)
Our programs are carefully planned to build friendships and community among kids and between adults and children. Our curriculum is intentionally chosen to teach children the wonderful stories of the Bible and how we can use our time and abilities to serve others in love. We also offer small groups throughout the year for parents to encourage one another on their journey to growth in Christ while nurturing their children’s faith along the way.
As we seek to invest in the spiritual formation of children we find that we, too, are growing in our relationship with Christ. Jesus teaches that children are an example to us all of what the Kingdom of God is like. Children learn from adults and adults learn from children.
