Caring for the Children

James, a follower of Jesus, once said that true religion, that is one that has meaning and purpose, is connected to our care of the orphans and widows. Jesus was clear that children have a special place in his kingdom, calling them to himself and blessing them. “Unless you become as a child,” Jesus said, “you shall not be a part of God’s kingdom.” Children are an important part of the life of faith, and we take seriously God’s concern for them through our ministries of care and discipleship.
