Children’s Ministry

Our children’s discipleship ministry at Providence has two edges to it.

Discipleland our Sunday AM ministry helps Children learn the story-line of the Bible learning of God’s redeeming plan through the entire Bible.

Truth Trackers our Sunday PM ministry helps children learn how to know God for themselves first of all through the Gospel and then through a daily time in the Word of God.  This program runs throughout the school-year and is hosted at the public elementary school facilities up the hill from PBC at McVay Elementary School a WPS.

From Discipleland:“George Barna states, “By the age of nine, most of the moral and spiritual foundations of a child are in place.” The culture we live in is greatly influencing our children’s moral behavior and development — the vast majority of Christian kids today have no spiritual foundation. In fact, current research indicates that nearly 70% of today’s youth are leaving the church. Fun and games are fine, but we’re raising a generation of children who have missed out on essential Bible training. When the world comes calling, many fall prey to dubious activities and deceptive philosophies — and they walk away from their faith.We must begin now to come alongside parents and equip them to provide their children – at the earliest age possible – with biblical precepts that will protect them from a barrage of worldly ideas and teaching that is hostile to the biblical worldview. The Bible illumines a finite number of “must know” topics to understand, “must be” traits to exhibit, and “must do” activities to experience. When a child’s developmental process includes that knowledge, those traits, and those experiences, we can be reasonably assured that we have done our part to develop a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ.”
