Children are an amazing gift from God, each life planned by Him – brought into this world, that they would know Him as Lord and Saviour. The vision of C3 Kids is that all children are recognised as unique, that they have a purpose and an amazing future in God. Our aim is to introduce them to God, and to encourage them to develop a personal relationship with Him. This is also about the children experiencing God and recognising His voice and influence. We want them to know him as Creator of the universe, the Saviour of their lives and at the same time friend, encourager, supporter and King.
The C3 Kids Program is provided every Sunday morning from approximately 10.30am, and usually runs for one hour and a half. Children are encouraged to stay in church for the first part of the service which is focused on praise and family, before being ‘released’ to their program. The C3 Kids Program comprises praise and worship, games, communion, offering, prayer time and a mini message. The children are encouraged to take part in all aspects of the program, at their own level. The goal of the program is to develop a solid foundation on which the children can continue to build their faith into adulthood. We focus on developing the children into passionate praise and worshippers of God, who have a good understanding of the Bible, and are well prepared to take their stand in the adult world. The program has a large ‘fun’ component, which culminates in an annual ‘production’ utilised as an outreach for the community. Finally, all children are different and have varying interests, strengths and weaknesses. We at C3 Kids believe each child is an individual, who can express themselves as themselves. God made all of us unique and special, and we are determined that every child recognises their value, who they are and who God intended them to be.
