Children’s Ministries at Sligo looks at the whole child and seeks to provide multiple ministries that will lead children to Jesus and disciple them in their daily walk with Him.
Children’s Ministry is about developing the faith of children ages birth to fourteen. Our mission is to nurture children into a loving, serving relationship with Jesus through various ministries such as Sabbath School, Kid’s Church, Children’s Lessons, Vacation Bible School, Street Ministry, Pathfinder & Adventurer clubs.
Children’s Ministry at Sligo is led by lay members of the Children’s Ministry Council (CMC) under the leadership of the Associate Pastor for Children. The mission of Children’s Ministries leaders and teachers are to reach out to children and draw them into a loving, productive and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ and with their church and to train, resource, and support those who minister to children.
We are a multi ethnic, family oriented, loving congregation. Our church believes in the Bible and we strive to glorify God by being increasingly transformed into the likeness of Christ. We seek to grow passionate disciples of Jesus through worship of God, nurture of one another, and outreach to the world.
