A secondary purpose of the SLBC Children’s Ministry is to help students come to know, love and follow Jesus.
To know: In each of the classes, students learn of the historical accounts found in the Bible, the important teachings of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. As they learn, they will grow in their skill and use of our faith’s essentials, such as Bible study, prayer, worship, fellowship and service.
To love: Each lesson encourages students to trust God alongside applying Bible learning to their current life situations. The goal of Bible teaching is to help God’s children understand the world through God’s perspective and live the joyful life God intended by adopting His values.
To follow: As students grow in their understanding about what it means to know and love God, in turn, they follow Him by learning and practicing obedience to God and His Word, parents and authority. They also learn to use their God-given gifts, talents and abilities to love and serve one another and to benefit the body of Christ.
