Children's Ministry

Role of Children’s Ministry at Franconia Baptist Church

We treasure our children because “children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward” (Ps. 127:3). Jesus himself cherished children and blessed them, saying, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Mt 19:14). It is a joy to serve and pray for the next generation.

The parents of the church are primarily responsible under God to bring up their children in the training and instruction of the Lord. Our role in children’s ministry is to support and encourage the ministry of the parents by faithfully teaching God’s Word and modeling genuine Christianity for the children in our care. We pray that by God’s grace, over the years, all the children in our trust “will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified” (Isa 61:3).
