As The Surf children's pastors, coordinators and volunteers, we have the tremendous privilege of partnering with parents in teaching their children about God, His ways and His Word as well as demonstrating to them the love of their Savior and ours, Jesus Christ. While doing this, we also enjoy countless moments, observing their innocence in action, their sincere faith and, well, their sometimes humorous "childlike-ness." These moments provide us with insight into Jesus' words, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." For this reason, we aim to create a safe and fun environment which will attract children, lead them to Jesus, and enable their childlike faith to thrive!
This childlike faith has the potential to change the world. That is why it is vital to start building a spiritual foundation in children even as early as newborns. We do this at the Surf by teaching children how to worship, pray, and apply God's Word. Our desire is that they grow in their relationship with God, learn how to hear His voice, and follow the calling that He has on their lives. As they learn to do this, He can use them to change the world.
