The Role of the Church
God has placed the responsibility on parents for properly training children. This is clear in numerous Scriptures.
“And, ye fathers provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” – Ephesians 6:4
Christ Embassy seeks to assist families to follow the Lord wholeheartedly. It is vital parents model the life they desire their children to live. We desire to encourage adults to faithfully honor God and fulfill their God-given responsibilities in the home.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6
What to Expect
Children learn key truths of the Bible through the many stories in Scripture. Using bright visuals, interactive learning experiences in a colorful and engaging atmosphere, the teacher presents a fresh Bible lesson each week. Children also sing familiar songs and choruses. They learn to apply Bible principles in their daily lives. The Bible lessons are reinforced with character-building stories, simple crafts, puppet skits and other age-appropriate activities.
The children will meet together for a fun filled and energetic praise and worship. They will then break up into smaller groups, organized by grade level, and learn in a more intimate environment, where one on one instruction and interaction play a key role in reinforcing the word or God. Every lesson is especially planned and prepared for each age group, to meet the learning needs of the children at a level they in which they understand. As the children progress in years and move to each grade level, they will build on what they have already learned from the previous years. The children are taught from a faith based curriculum, beginning with bible basics and progressing to greater lessons of faith and Godly principles.
The lessons they are taught are not just bible stories of history, but the principles of these stories that will impact their lives throughout. We also encourage the parents to be involved with the children, by participating in a class, sitting in on a lesson, and we even send home a study sheet to engage with the children for the week. The lessons are reinforced through dramas, interactive approaches, and hands on, with colorful visuals,displays, demonstrations, and crafts.
The instructors are hand chosen, trained, and mentored through an aggressive foundation to solidify their understanding of the word of God. We go to great lengths to protect the children, we have implemented several procedures including; background checks and a secure labeling system for the children when they arrive. We have also trained instructors in CPR, first aid, and special needs.
