The Kids@The-Grove Ministry aligns its mission with the five Biblical purposes of Cedar Grove Church and exists to equip children and families to discover:

  • Age-appropriate WORSHIP;
  • The wonder of BELONGING to God’s family;
  • How to GROW in their relationship with Christ;
  • Ways to SERVE; and
  • The joy of SHARING Christ in the world!

 Where Does The Church Get The Five Biblical Purposes?

The Great Commandment
Teacher, which command in the law is the most important?” Jesus answered, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.” This is the first and most important command. And the second command is like the first: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” All the law and the writings of the prophets depend on these two commands.  Matthew 22:36-40 (ICB)

The Great Commission
So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have told you. You can be sure that I will be with you always, I will continue with you until the end of the world.  Matthew 28:19-20
