WelcomeChildren & Youth
Arthur: Hello, my name is Arthur Wong.
Gabriel: And I am Gabriel Ng.
Arthur: We are the pastors for Young Life Ministry. I am mainly responsible for the kids and their families under the age of 12.
Gabriel: And I am responsible for leading the youth from 12 to 18.
Arthur: Young Life Ministry was established in the summer of 2014. It is a ministry that serves the young families of all the three language congregations of our church: English, Mandarin, and Cantonese. This is in response to the growing number of young families in our church. The kids of Young Life Ministry begins their Sundays either at 9 am or 11 am. At 9 am, kids and their parents are invited to the English worship service in the sanctuary, where kids will have an opportunity to worship alongside their parents or their teachers. After singing, kids teaching time, and prayer, the kids follow their teachers to KidZone downstairs for Children Sunday School. At 11 am, kids come together in KidZone for children worship time, followed by Bible lessons and activities.
Gabriel: Besides worship services, our youth also have Sunday school at 11 am on Sundays. They also attend the youth fellowship, Hosanna, on Friday nights around 8 pm. Usually, we meet at church.
Arthur: As a church, we deeply believe God has called every parent and caregiver to be involved in the raising of their children. But we also believe the church has a key role to play in raising children as well. That is why we have many leaders, teachers, helpers, youth counselors, and pastors working in the Young Life Ministry. All of them go through a vigorous screening process before approved to work with our kids and youth.
Gabriel: We sincerely hope Jaffray is where young children and youth find community and more important, discover the God who loves them in Jesus Christ.
