Introduction...

In a world of ever changing morals and standards there is one Kingdom that stands forever...the Kingdom of God! The mission of River's Edge Kingdom Kids Children's Ministry is to embrace all children with the love of God the Father, encourage them in their true identity as sons and daughters of the Most High God through salvation in God's Son, Jesus Christ, and to empower them through a growing knowledge of the King of kings, by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Working alongside Christian parents and anointed Pastors, our goal is to equip children with the truth of God's Word and encourage them to seek an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, so that they are ready for every good work prepared for them by God through Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:10; Colossians 2:7).

Who we are...

Kingdom Kids is the forward movement of the children of River's Edge Church, ages birth through early teens, who learn, grow, and live through sound Biblical teaching and under the unction of the Holy Spirit through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, taking dominion of all that God has promised them (Genesis 1:26-28; Deuteronomy 28:13; Hebrews 2:10; Romans 8:17).

Have you ever wondered how our holy and righteous God feels about loud, silly, and uneducated kids?  It seems the disciples had a notion about them. In Mark 10:13-16, we read, "Then they brought the little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them.  But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.'" Jesus could have stopped there and we all would have received His words of correction and understood His compassion for the children. But it is interesting that Jesus continued His train of thought and added a treasure nugget worth seeking when He said, "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it." Now, how's that for a punch line?! Not only did Jesus make it clear that we are to love and accept all children, but we are admonished to be like them! After saying this, verse 16 tells us that Jesus "took the children up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them." Wow! It is obvious that God thinks highly of little children and desires that they walk in the authority of His Kingdom through the blessing and power of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission...

The mission of River's Edge Kingdom Kids Children's Ministry is to embrace all children with the love of God the Father, encourage them in their true identity as sons and daughters of the Most High God through salvation in God's Son, Jesus Christ, and to empower them through a growing knowledge of the King of kings, by the leading of the Holy Spirit. Working alongside Christian parents and anointed Pastors, our goal is to equip children with the truth of God's Word and encourage them to seek an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, so that they are ready for every good work prepared for them by God through Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:10; Colossians 2:7). God has a plan for every child (Jeremiah 29:11), and desires that they have a relationship with Him (John 3:16), and understand their destiny and calling as appointed to each one (Ephesians 1:3-6, 11). As stewards of the Word of God and the beautiful gifts of our children, may we be found faithful to "train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6).

The Bible tells us that the Kingdom of God is like hidden treasure (Matthew 13:44), and we are to search for it with all of our hearts (Matthew 6:33); asking, seeking, and knocking by faith for the hidden mysteries of the heart of God (Matthew 7:7-12). As we seek the hidden treasure of the Kingdom, we find within each child an invaluable treasure...we find Kingdom Kids!
