Our children’s ministry currently meets each Wednesday night, during the spring and fall semester.
The Westminster Catechism states, “The chief aim of man is to glorify God, and enjoy him forever.” We couldn’t agree more, and these two truths are foundational to our children’s ministry. We seek to develop the spiritual senses of our children (ages 6-11) so that they can enjoy the depth and quality of relationship with God that Jesus went to the cross to obtain for us. Out of this intimate relationship with the Lord, we seek to develop both godly character and spiritual giftings, which bring glory to God. We serve a generational God – “I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” – and so we are a generational church. We believe that “…out of the mouths of infants and babes you have ordained praise…” Our children are our future, and that is why we place a priority on their generation.
The overall goal of the Children’s Ministry is to assist the home with developing character to build stronger, Kingdom-minded families, a stronger youth group, and future church by providing Bible instruction and lessons in obedience, moving in the gifts of the Spirit (1 Cor. 12), boldness in prayer, and listening for and hearing the voice of God.
At GCF Brenham, our children are taught that there is no such thing as a “Junior Holy Spirit”, and that they are a vital part of God’s Kingdom. They are given opportunities to develop their spiritual gifts, to grow in the teachings of the Word, and step out into their community as powerful prayer warriors.
