The LEDGE children's ministry is an adventurous, caring and celebrating place making a difference in the lives of kids by God's power and for His glory. We want kids, parents and volunteers to know that life on the LEDGE with Jesus our Leader is the best way to live! Therefore, our mission is to equip in five key areas:
We equip keeping the following values in mind:
We believe that apart from God our adventure is meaningless. So we lean on Him and heartily believe the words of Psalm 31:1-6 (MSG):
I run to you, God; I run for dear life. Don't let me down! Take me seriously this time! Get down on my level and listen, and please - no procrastination! Your granite cave a hiding place, your high cliff aerie a place of safety. You're my cave to hide in, my cliff to climb. Be my safe leader, be my true mountain guide. Free me from hidden traps; I want to hide in you. I've put my life in your hands. You won't drop me, you'll never let me down. I hate all this silly religion, but you, God, I trust.
Our primary programming happens at our Sunday services. From birth up through grade five we seek to provide high quality ministry that leaves families wanting more of Jesus. Our screened volunteers seek the best for your family; let us know how we can serve you better! Our departments:
In addition to our Sunday programming, we provide various avenues of ministry:
A huge part of the adventure for life on the LEDGE is people caught up in the wonder of God. When people are captivated by Him they also begin to see how big His heart is for children. Then they wonder how they can bless children as Jesus did. Serving children as part of the LEDGE team is a highly rewarding experience. Whether you're an upfront or behind-the-scenes type of person, there's a role for you! There are many gift-based ways you can get involved no matter your experience or personality:
Apprenticeship is our preferred approach for volunteer assimilation. Individuals are paired with a seasoned team member. Here they observe and learn the skills necessary to grow as an effective team member. Once ready, they can increase their level of responsibility as desired. This is an established model for healthy and strong team chemistry and fruitfulness.
