Think of the body of Christ as a building. In order for a building to become a home for someone to live in, many different things have to take place. The foundation has to be poured. Walls need to be erected. A roof has to be put on. Plumbing and electricity have to be installed. None of those things take place on its own, nor does one person do it. A lot of work goes into building a home, work that is done by many people who are all gifted in very different ways..
Something similar has to happen in the church. We must all use our gifts to build up the body of Christ. We must all be actively engaged in the area of ministry with which Jesus has called us.The way we get there is by building each other up in an understanding of the basics of the faith and a deep, intimate knowledge of the Son of God. We also get there by being a church that is given to being like Christ in our thoughts, actions, and knowledge, and helping others do the same.
“But Jesus 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.
At Pathway Visalia, we love that our families get to worship the Lord in song TOGETHER! But after worship, our kids breakout into Sunday School classes where they are taught from God’s Word on their level in fun and creative ways. We want our kids to fall in love with Jesus and come to a true and saving faith in Him.
“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12.
Our hope for our middle school and high school students is for them to learn how to apply God’s Word to their lives in very real and practical ways. We want them to learn to be bold in sharing their faith and to give them opportunities to do that and to grow closer together in Christ both at church and through fun activities planned outside of church.
