The Next Generation
Children's Pastor | Nike Ogunmekan
FROM PRESCHOOL TO JUNIOR HIGH, WE ARE BUILDING A STRONG PLACE IN HISTORY.
Our Mustard Seed Ministries include children and students grades preschool to junior high. In this ministry, the mission is common: to bring glory to God by making disciples through gospel-centered worship, gospel-centered community, gospel-centered service and gospel-centered multiplication. Because we believe that Scripture is clear that parents are the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children, our hope is to partner with parents in their pursuit of this mission, coming alongside them in the discipleship process. We do this in many ways, but especially through the various resources that we create. These resources help build a strong, gospel-centered foundation for their kids.
In our Preschool ministry, we strive to create the first building blocks of a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We teach from the Scriptures and help parents proclaim to their kids who God is and what He has done in the person and work of Jesus Christ. During the weekends, in Little Village, we sing, dance and teach the Bible to the kids, focusing on our five foundational truths: God made everything, God is in charge of everything, God is good, Jesus came to save sinners, and God wants to talk with us.
In our Elementary ministry, we work to continue building up a strong, gospel-centered foundation for our children. We do this by teaching our kids about the nature and character of God—that He is wise, generous, loving and good. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by creating environments, curriculum and resources that center on the gospel of Jesus Christ. On the weekends, in Kids Village, we worship through song, tell stories from the Bible and gather in small groups by age to talk about Scripture together.
Here at Mustard seed, we use Awana, a multiple curricula level that ranges from toddlers to 6th grade. In the U.S. and Canada, Awana is split into six age groups:
Puggles (2 and 3 yr olds)
Cubbies (3 through 5 yr olds)
Sparks (Kinder., Grades 1 & 2)
Truth & Training (T&T) (for grades 3, 4, 5 & 6)
ETC (Extraordinary Through Christ) (Grades 7 & 8)
Mustard Seed Ministries believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is supernaturally inspired, so that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal and plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
EXTRAORDINARY THROUGH CHRIST
“I can do all things through Christ” — Philipians 4:13a
Extraordinary Through Christ (ETC) was created for our middle school children to help bridge the character/behavioral gap that exist between our children and youth ministries. We work with parents to encourage and teach our middle school children on how to be responsible and actively involved in doing what is right.
MIDDLE SCHOOL ETC MINISTRY (6TH – 8TH)
In our Middle School ministry, we seek to increase that strong, gospel-centered foundation in our students through learning and studying the Word of God and living out biblical community in small groups. Middle school is where our students get their first experience of what group life is like within the church. Our hope is to partner with parents in helping students go deeper with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, God. This ministry looks a little differently at each campus, but what we seek to accomplish is the same.
