Governing Values for Our Children’s Ministry

- Curriculum that is Supportive of Christian Parenting done in the Home
Our Children’s Ministries at New Salem Church are committed to assisting parents in fulfilling the scriptural admonition to train their children in a way that honors the Lord (Ephesians 6:4; Deuteronomy 6:6-9). We believe that parents are the ones that are primarily responsible for the discipleship and discipline of their children. The church should not usurp the authority given by God to parents, nor assume the responsibilities of parents who are lax in their duties. The church should give itself to teaching the biblical principles of parenthood and to holding parents accountable to carry out those biblical principles. While we have an active program for children, it should be viewed as a supplementary role for parents’, and not to replace them.
At the heart of children’s ministry is basic Bible teaching which is designed to clearly present to every child his/her need for the Savior, Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23; 5:8).

Wednesday Night Children’s Church
On Wednesday nights, New Salem’s children are involved in biblical lessons that teach children about Jesus and His life. The children learn how to see Jesus in the world around us, how to help others, serve others, and apply biblical teachings to their everyday lives through lessons and hands-on activities.
