Christ Kingdom Children and Youth

Youth Ministry

Youth ministry is a vital part of the overall church ministry. Our goal is to provide a supportive Christ-centered environment where pre-teens and teenagers may develop holistically — intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and socially (Luke 2:52), — so that they may know Christ as their Lord and Savior. It is our desire to see them become true disciples of Christ (Matt 28:19,20), so that they may serve and love God wholeheartedly (Luke 10:27). All youth programs and activities are designed with this goal in mind.

Our desire is to integrate young people into the life of the church body, to prepare them to become both present and future leaders of the church, and to equip the young saints for works of service (Eph 4:12,13). This youth ministry takes a team approach, and values the active support and involvement of parents and other adults.

neighborhood Youth outreach

It was discovered that the youth in the neighborhood enjoyed attending the Merge Youth Ministry sponsored by Zion Baptist Church and First Baptist Church of Glenarden. Subsequently, our church has endeavored to take them to the Friday night meeting of Merge on a regular  basis.  Merge is a wonderful program that serves well 200 or 300 youth weekly.  It consist of a solid biblical message, hardy praise and worship and breakout groups that deal with youths' questions and life issues.  Christ Kingdom Church is glad to participate in the Merge Program and to offer it as an alternative to Friday night activities for the youth in our neighborhood.

Children Ministry

We are honored that you chose Christ Kingdom Church for your children to worship and to fortify their walk in Christ. We are a family oriented church; at every age level our mission is “To Make Disciples Who Lovingly Advance the Kingdom of God”. Children’s Church is dedicated to equipping children with the biblical tools to make disciples that will stand firm in righteousness. This is an honored and cherished labor of love not taken lightly. The ministry is perfected through watchful discerning eyes and hands of trained Christian ministers and lay leadership.

The Children Church program offers a consistent innovative and creative Children’s Ministry for ages 5-11. An excellent evangelical curriculum builds faith in Biblical truths. Our children’s service is age appropriate and designed to connect them through prayer and worship. We strive to impart the Fruits of the Spirit which are; love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in every area of the life of a child.

Children will grow, and go forth making decisions that affect their lives, the lives of others, and the world. Plant your child in a place that will glorify God above everything else, a place that teaches them to ask the question “Is God in everything I do and say? Christ Kingdom Church is where your children will be transform into global disciples for Christ.

Matthew 18:2-6

He called a little child and had him stand among them.  And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  "And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.  But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

Mark 10:13-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.  When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."  And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
