We value and support children and the women and men committed to the spiritual nurturing of children in the church, home and community. The Evangelical Covenant Church supports a formational model of children’s ministry that focuses on building a growing receptivity to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit by exploring:
1. God’s Word, in a way that allows children to wonder, question and dwell with God so they can find their place in God’s story.
2. Relationships, as equal participants within the whole of the church community, fostering spiritual growth as families, and valuing and celebrating the diversity of God’s Kingdom and their part in it.
3. Outward Action, as a way of encouraging children to live into and share their gifts and faith with others inside and outside the church by extending the compassion, mercy and love of Christ and giving witness to the good news through their actions and their words.
4. Worship, to foster an intimate life with God characterized by individual and corporate expressions of devotion, empowered for living an abundant joy-filled life in Christ.
