At Citizens Church Kids, our mission is to partner with families in raising up the next generation of Christ-followers who know and love God, understand His Word, and actively serve others with compassion and love. Through dynamic teaching, engaging activities, and meaningful relationships, we aim to equip and empower kids to become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ who boldly live out their faith and impact the world around them for His glory.
Our vision is to see children grow in their love for God and others through gospel-centered teaching, engaging worship, and intentional discipleship. We desire to partner with parents and the larger church community to raise up a generation of disciples who will impact their families, schools, neighborhoods, and beyond with the transforming love of Christ.
At Citizens Church, we are committed to cultivating an environment where children can grow in their knowledge and love for Jesus Christ. Our values are centered around our mission to know Jesus and make Him known to others. We believe that our ministry should be a place where children can focus on Jesus, experience His love, and grow in their love for His people. Our values include:
  1. Christ-centeredness: We strive to make Jesus the center of everything we do and teach.
  2. Discipleship: We believe in the importance of intentional, lifelong discipleship that encourages growth in faith and obedience.
  3. Family partnership: We aim to partner with families to provide support, encouragement, and resources for spiritual growth and development.
  4. Community: We believe in fostering a sense of belonging and community within our ministry, where children can develop meaningful relationships with their peers and leaders.
  5. Biblical foundation: We prioritize teaching biblical doctrine and providing opportunities for children to apply it to their lives.
  6. Service: We seek to model and encourage a spirit of service and compassion toward others, as demonstrated by Jesus.
  7. Fun and creativity: We strive to create a fun and engaging atmosphere that fosters creativity and encourages children to use their unique gifts and talents for God's glory.
