Children's Ministry: Entertain or Teach?

Posted by Matt Postiff January 20, 2012 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Church 

For those thinking about children's programs in the church, the following by Ken Ham is a helpful reminder:

Sadly, many churches today make the mistake that we disciple adults but only entertain children; they don't teach our young people the "deep" things of the Christian faith because they believe children cannot understand much of it. But we are failing our children when we don't teach them the Word of God and give them answers in today's modern scientific world. Children in our churches are largely biblically illiterate, and they don't see Scripture as relevant in their lives. We shouldn't be surprised that two thirds of the young people growing up in the church will leave the church in their 20s (as we examine in our book Already Gone).
