(up to eleven years)
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
We believe that children are very important to God. Jesus had the custom of taking children up into his arms and blessing them. He even said that " unless you be converted, and become as little children you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven".
Tweens (age 12)
and Youth (ages 13 to 17)
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the
believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.
Tweens and youth make up a vital part of the church today. They bring life and laughter into the church body. Giving them a fundamental understanding of Scripture is important. These young men and women will be the pastors, teachers, and evangelists of the future.
