Connecting Our Children to Jesus and Each Another

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’” Matthew 19:14

“And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:16

In many ways, not only does tomorrow’s church depend on our children, but so does today’s. Think about it. When was the last time the joy and faith of a child not lift your spirits? We all know we need to have faith like our children. That’s why the Children’s Ministry wants to instill a deep-rooted faith in our children early.

We appreciate you sharing your children with us. Each week we strive to present biblical truths in creative, memorable ways. We strive to partner with parents in modeling loving, Christian relationships. We strive to provide exciting opportunities for growth and learning. We do all of this knowing the importance of our responsibility: to begin a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.

At FCCS, nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of your children. That’s why we’ve chosen “KidCheck” to bring you the best experience at check-in and to provide you as parents the ability to act as a team with us to keep them in safe hands.   For more information and register your child for free, please click here.
