Connect children

Connect Children provides a ministry that seeks to help our children strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ so that they can grow up knowing the love of God and live their lives as children of Christ, shining the light of Jesus wherever they go. We want to teach and show them the love of Jesus in a way that is BOTH fun, encouraging and helpful to the children of Good News Church AND welcoming to the children of our community who do not know Jesus. We encourage our children to connect their friends to the Good News of Jesus and invite them out to Connect Children on Sunday. You can download the brochure, here.

awards

The children will be learning and memorizing the catechism (based on the Westminster Shorter Catechism). We hope parents will learn and memorize the catechisms together with their children to encourage them. Children will be awarded credits for each Catechism they answer correctly each meeting. The number of credits awarded will be determined by the difficulty/length of the Catechism answered. The children will be able to redeem the credits at the end of January and at the end of June for a variety of prizes (i.e. balls, toys, hats, t-shirts, snacks etc.).
