2018-2019 Theme


Being the structured person that I am I like to give things themes and titles. As I have spent time serving on staff at Second, I have been trying to figure out the main thing I want to focus on this year. After much thinking and praying, it was revealed to me what our theme should be in the Children’s Ministry this year. It became pretty obvious to me since I am new to Second and still getting to know people. The theme that I want us to focus on this year in the Children’s Ministry is “Building Relationships”. Building Relationships is so vital to our Christian lives for two reasons: We are called to live in fellowship and we are called to share our faith.

  1. “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42                                    God created each one of us to live in fellowship and build community. It is important for Christians to be surrounded by a solid community that will encourage them, teach them, pray for them, and hold them accountable. Here at Second we offer different ways for people to build that type of community with different types of groups and activities.
  2. “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20    Building relationships gives Christians opportunities to share their faith and disciple believers. Christians cannot truly minister to people until we build trusting relationships. Discipleship is a process that requires building relationships. All Christians are called to make disciples; therefore, all Christians have to build relationships.

As we journey through this year together, I want to challenge you, our kids, and myself to focus on building relationships inside and outside the church. There are still many of you at Second that I do not know, but I am excited to get to know you and hear your story. Lets reach out to people and build a solid community here at Second and in the community of Arkadelphia. Build Relationships!

-Jacob Jenkins, Children’s Pastor
