God’s love for children is evident in the many biblical stories and verses that feature them prominently. And we believe that children’s ministry is an important part of Grace Community Church because it provides an opportunity for us to share God’s love with kids in a way that is fun and interactive. But ultimately, our goal is not just to entertain kids but to teach them the importance of having an obedient heart. We want them to understand that God has a plan for their lives and that they can have a personal relationship with Him. We believe that by instilling these values in kids at an early age, we can help them grow into faithful adults who will make a difference in their communities and in the world. It is my pleasure to introduce our Children’s Ministry leader, Vanessa Burga LLorca.
One of the Bible verses that touched my heart and led me commit to teach kids God’s word was Matthew 19:14 when Jesus said: “Let the children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
When I realized ( through reading the scriptures )how precious and valuable children were in the sight of God, I understood that the seed of his word had to be sown and nurtured in them from an early age. That’s because HE has a purpose for each one of them. I’ve been serving in children’s ministry since 2006. I started in the nursery and then moved on to teaching Sunday School to children aged 12 and under . It has been delightful, rewarding and a blessing to witness how God has grown the faith of the children in my care. That, along with my heartfelt thankfulness to my Lord and Savior, drives me to continue working at Grace Community Church!
