Emmaus Kids Ministry at Emmaus Baptist Church, exists to support our church’s goals in the lives of children and their families. Our desire is see families grow to know Jesus better, and grow in their relationship with Him and each other. We seek to accomplish this using our six points of focus: worship, outreach, serving our neighbors, discipleship, evangelism, and building relationships.
Emmaus (pronounced ee·MAY·us) is a city in Judea. Two friends walked to Emmaus and met Jesus along the way but didn’t recognize Him. When Jesus blessed the meal, they realized they had been speaking with the one they had seen crucified. Their “wonder” of their Savior, stirred up a passion in them to share their experiences with those around them. Their lives were changed forever.
Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Our hope as a Children’s Ministry is that children find that same “wonder” in Christ, and build a foundation that they can grow and nurture for the rest of their lives.
