The Visalia Seventh-day Adventist Children’s Ministry mission is to make disciples of our children in the “context of the three angels’” messages of Revelation 14:6-12. We lead them to accept Jesus as their personal Savior, invite them to unite with His church, and prepare them for His soon return.
The Lord said: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie dow and when you get up.”
— Deuteronomy 6:4-7
Based on this passage we are dedicated to equipping our parents and mentors with the tools to train our children to be disciples of Jesus Christ.
We will be a safe place for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus through Christ centered programs and activities; however, we will resist the trend within Christianity to usurp the command and authority given by God that parents are to be the Spiritual leaders of their children. To that end it is our desire to assist parents, grandparents, and mentors in the difficult, but important job of laying a Biblical foundation in the lives of their children; so they can come to know God and walk with Him on a daily basis.
Join us and we’ll rejoice together as YOUR KIDS fall-in-love with Jesus!
Our teachers strive to assist children discover Jesus through the bible in a caring, nurturing environment where your child can experience God’s love. Our teachers are committed to providing your children with tools to lead them to Jesus through bible stories, praise and worship, mission stories and prayer.
