Vision & policies


Vision Statement
"Winning and building children for Jesus."
Luke 18:15-17
 
The vision of Celebration Center Children's Ministries is to train up a body of children who are confident in who they are in Christ and who have knowledge and understanding of God's Word. We, along with parents, strive to build a firm foundation for the children on which they can begin to build their walk of faith.
  • To have children who will boldly proclaim Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
  • Children who pray and know how to enter His gates with thanksgiving in their hearts, who enter His courts with praise, and
  • Children who sing unto the Lord and celebrate His goodness.

The Children's Ministry of Celebration Center desires to help children understand, worship, and most importantly have a personal relationship with JESUS!
