In alignment with the church's mission "Equipping for Growth", the Children's Ministry is fulling 5-12 year olds mind with the word of God so they will grow to think the way God thinks and live the way God has commanded. "But grow in grace, and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen" 2 Peter 3:18 KJV
SOP's Children Ministry will be a dynamic hub for children to grow spiritually, discover their own voice and talent while using the platform given to minister to their peers, families, community and world.
The ministry's model was implemented with the mission and vision in mind. Services are held on second, third, and fourth Sundays.
Second Sundays-Dig In (Plunge into the Word): To build a godly foundation and cultivate disciples, the children will explore biblical principles in their age-specific groups with the guidance of their teacher.
Third Sundays-Going Deeper: We want to give the children a platform to practice what they have been taught and also prepare them to integrate in the general adult service. Our third Sundays emulate the general worship service where each segment is led by the children under the direction of an adult leader. This includes a student led worship team, exhortations, public relations, and ministry of the word.
Fourth Sundays-Creative Arts: Children will be given the opportunity to explore their gifts and prepare for presentations to the church and community
