Children's Ministry

we're a kid friendly church

At Forestpark, we believe all children are important, and that being a kid friendly church is extremely valuable to young individuals. The Bible shows us the importance of the children to Jesus. We believe children are the future leaders of our churches and our nation. We believe that we need to train up our children in the home and in the church. We believe the training of our children today will effect the destiny of our nation tomorrow.

our purpose

Our purpose is to provide an environment with the opportunity for children to develop as Jesus did:

“In wisdom, stature, and in favor with God.” – Luke 2:52

We strive to help kids grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. We want to encourage each child to develop an understanding that they need to have their own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We also want each child to feel that he or she is loved and is an important part of our ministry.
