Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 

 

Welcome to our Little Resources material!

As a church, we believe in covenantal theology. We believe in the place of all generations in our church family. We believe in the passing on of our faith to our children. As a Board, we want to encourage churches to make sure that this includes the tiniest members of our church families – the under-5s.

This resource is a collection of materials that will help you with this vital ministry. The idea is that it will be constantly added to and updated as we collect more materials to help with ministry with this age group. You can also make recommendations to add to it as you try different things.

The resource includes:

Articles: these include articles written for our own denominational magazines and those from outside of PCI that we have been given permission to share.

Teaching options: there are some options for teaching materials for this age group and we want to make sure that you know what those are and how to access them easily.

Event plans: we are planning to pilot a different type of event each year for the under-5s and then to give you everything that your congregation, group of churches or presbytery would need to run similar events in your local area. We will do everything we can to support you in this.

Reading material: there are some great books and reading materials out there to help us think about ministry with this age. This section includes reviews of some of these. Please feel free to recommend any books to us that we can include in this section.

We are excited to work together to make ministry with under-5s within our denomination the best that it can be as the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
