The Mission

The mission of Embassy’s Children and Youth Ministry is helping children and students mature in Christ by:

  • Supporting and encouraging parents who are primarily responsible for teaching biblical truths to their children and youth (Ephesians 6:4).
  • Making the whole counsel of Scripture known to children and youth with special emphasis on the Gospel (Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Romans 1:16-17).
  • Praying for the children and youth. We rely on the Holy Spirit to regenerate their hearts through the faithful teaching of God’s Word (Romans 10:17; Ephesians 2:4-10).
  • Living faithfully before the children and youth. We aim to model for them how Christians are called to respond to God, interact with each other, and with the world around us (Matthew 5:16; 1 Corinthians 11:1).

Overview of the Ministries

Children’s Ministry

We currently have three children’s classes:

  • Nursery Age: Weekly
  • Toddlers – Pre-K: Weekly
  • K – 3rd grade: A weekly class during the sermon of the worship service. 

Youth Ministry

We currently have one youth ministry class:

  • 4th – 8th grade: Bi-Weekly

In addition to this class, we also help facilitate monthly mentoring relationships within the church. Our church is committed to making disciples through one-on-one meetings among adults, youth, and children. Please speak with one of our elders for more information and help with our mentoring ministry.

 

Descriptions of the Classes

Nursery & Toddler Age Children

Children of this age have a short Bible story, sing songs and play in the nursery during the service. The class is informal.

 

Kindergarten through 3rd Grade

This class uses the Gospel Project curriculum. The curriculum follows a three-year cycle covering the Old and New Testament stories.

All of the children stay with their parents for the first part of the service when we sing the Word, read the Word and pray the Word.  They are then dismissed before the sermon.  The class has a short lesson together taught by a teacher, reviews a Bible memory verse and then splits into two groups – one for the pre-K and kindergarteners and another for the first through third grade.  In the smaller, groups they review the lesson, apply it and pray together.

Gospel-Project-Kids

4th Grade – Middle School

These students will also stay in the worship service for the first half and then be dismissed before the sermon.

This class is currently studying the gospel through the book What’s Up: Discovering the Gospel, Jesus, and Who You Really Are.
