Jesus once said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” (Matthew 19:14 NLT)
Children clearly mattered to Jesus. Even at a time when others might have felt children were less important. Jesus wanted His followers to understand the high value He placed on caring for children.
At the Pickerington and Indianola churches children are highly valued. Jenny Hooper oversees our children ministry teams on both campuses.
