GO2 2016-2017

GO2 Children Ministry at Oakridge Baptist Church

We are very delighted to share with the Church Family our 5th Anniversary of this Children Ministry.We started in 2012 with a group of passionate teens and college/career young adults. Even though we knew very little of what to do or how to run these ‘kids’ nights’, God has surely provided us with ideas, leaders, children, and even a Cooking (+ Cleaning) Team!

The inspiration came from the Vacation Bible School (VBS) which we run every year in the summer time. By adopting the teaching materials, we managed to design the night with fun-filled activities of Songs+Actions, Bible Story Presentation, Art and Crafts, Science Experiments and Games. We’ve learnt along the way and made modifications where needed. We are encouraged to see both the leaders and kids grow in the knowledge of God and His Word!

The “MVP” for this Ministry GO2 (which stands for God is our One and Only) is:

Mission – To train children in the way they should go, and when they are old, they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6 [show] Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

)
Vision — To set a good example for the children (in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity). (1 Tim 4:12 [show] Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. (ESV)

) To see each leader be able to train younger leaders and head this ministry in the future.
Passion — We love what God loves and we love who God (Jesus) loves.
“ Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God
belongs to such as these.” (Mark 10:14 [show] But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. (ESV)

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Church for all the support given to us in the past years, and most importantly, to offer God our Praise and Thanksgiving today and always! Amen.

In God we serve,
Team GO2
