Children are a gift from God, and we believe in investing into the lives of each little one that we teach. We want to pour the truths of God's Word into them at an early age, trusting that the Lord will cultivate a saving faith in their hearts as they grow. At Heritage, we are very excited to be involved in AWANA, which stands for Approved Workmen are Not Ashamed. Every Wednesday night we use this curriculum to help our children understand gospel truths in a way that they will always remember. The kids have an incredible time playing games and engaging in other activities as they are also challenged to learn different Scriptures each week. And, as they learn the Bible from week to week, they are rewarded for their efforts. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 19:14 As we teach our children each week, we want to see them as Jesus does, and understand that Christ draws even the children to Himself, planting a seed of faith in their hearts.
