Children

We know that children, as well as adults, have many choices throughout their lives.  VHUMC Children’s Ministry wants to partner with parents to help build a foundation that creates a habit for children to go to God for guidance as they make decisions in life.

Beginning in the cradle, our children experience the security and unconditional love of Jesus at this church.  We want children to know that God loves them, is always with them, and never changes.  We teach this early in children’s lives by teaching them the stories of Jesus.  During the elementary years we teach children to apply these stories to their own lives.  We want children to learn to live their lives the way Jesus lived His life, so that others will be able to see Him through them.

We also want children to be in the habit of going to God when things are good or bad in their lives.  We teach this through modeling prayer, praying together, and letting the children lead in prayer.

We want the children to know that they can serve God and His people no matter how old they are.  We give children opportunities to be involved in mission projects and other activities that the entire church is a part of, so that they will know they are a part of the body of Christ.
