In Mark 10:14-16, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I assure you that whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Our children’s ministry is designed to bring children closer to God through Jesus Christ and to teach them to be loving, caring Christians.
