Children's Ministry

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

At Goshen Baptist Church, our Children’s Ministry mission is to connect children to Christ and to each other and to support parents in their roles as Christ-followers and mentors of their children. We recognize that parents have been given the primary responsibility for their children’s faith education (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). As a ministry team, we want to do what we can to reinforce what you are teaching your child about the love of God through Christ. Our team has prayerfully considered the best way to support a “balanced diet” of spiritual learning and growth opportunities. We have wonderful volunteers who lead children through age appropriate Bible study, worship, discipleship, and missions’ education. All volunteers undergo a background check and complete a child abuse awareness training.

AWANA CLUBS AT GOSHEN


Awana Clubs at Goshen is a program for children ages 2 through 5th grades that incorporates Bible teaching and scripture memorization with tons of fun. The acronym Awana is derived from the first letters of “Approved workmen are not ashamed” as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15: “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”

The Awana program is based on the concept of children learning about God by learning God’s Word in a regular and systematic manner. Each club has age-appropriate handbooks for you and your clubber to work
on together. Think of Awana this way: it’s like a combination of scripture memory from Bible drills, along with the incentives of Scouts, with the fun and excitement of VBS!

Awana clubs at Goshen meet every Wednesday throughout the school year from 6:15pm-7:45pm.
