The Future of Clubhouse Kids!
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the church family for calling me to be the NEW children’s pastor of Pleasant City Church. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve this congregation and community. I would like to thank Kenny Smith and his team of volunteers for the past nine years of visionary leadership in creating what has become CLUBHOUSE KIDS. His ministry has laid the groundwork for me to come in and be successful.
The good Lord has blessed me with a special gift to work with children. Over the last several weeks I have had some parents ask me, “What is your vision for this ministry?” Through my years of working with kids I have learned that children’s ministry is full of possibilities. It only needs you to do the things required to make it grow….and that starts with casting a vision.
My vision is to “Partner with PARENTS to lead their child to know, love and serve Jesus.” CLICK on the link to watch a great video around this vision… https://youtu.be/JDY_EfUOVIQ
I believe that kids love FUN and when children have fun at church; they can’t wait to come back. I will value creating fun ways for children to learn about JESUS. Church should never be boring for a child and kids should be able to learn about God in a way that they can understand. It’s my goal to partner with parents to provide resources to bring stories to life through the activities and discussions that will keep children engaged. Our team of volunteers wants all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
My vision is also to recruit more help for the children’s ministry. Parents, let me ask you a question? Do you know what happens on Sunday mornings in the childrens area? Do you know why your kids love coming to church? If not then you need to come and acquaint yourself with our NEW Family Experience (FX) and see where you can get plugged in. Be on the lookout for our FIRST FX coming in August.
As your Children’s Pastor I look forward, with our team of volunteers, to help your children learn that God designed the church to shine the light of JESUS and the Family to nurture the HEARTS of children. Come partner with us and be a part of making your church a place where children want to be.
In HIS Service, Corby Haneline
