Ephesians 6:4 says "Fathers, bring up your children in the training and instruction of the Lord."
Obviously, that's not only an instruction to fathers. It's an instruction to parents. God has given the responsibility of spiritual training to parents and it's not optional. It is a command. The most important lesson that we teach our kids is about knowing and loving God. The bottom line of parenting is to point our kids to God.
We at Celebration Community Church take Christian Education seriously. We are here to support and resource what parents need to be doing, like reading Bible stories, singing songs about God and His love and helping your child to memorize Bible verses. I know it's a lot in our busy schedules but it is that important.
This is why we started Victory Christian Academy, a pre-5th grade school.
Why is a Christian education so important? Proverbs 9:10 says "Knowing God results in every other kind of understanding."
Philippians 3:8 "Everything else is worthless compared with the priceless gain of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord."
Knowing God is the foundational issue of life. Knowing God is what you build every other form of learning or training on. It's not just enough to talk about God. We need to make sure we point our kids to Jesus Christ, their Savior, the one who loves them and gave his life for them.
If you have a child or grandchild that is entering pre-school or kindergarten or you are looking to have your child's elementary school experience be one that provides quality education from a Christian perspective, come to the next VCA OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT at 6:30pm.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
