Common Ground values children as uniquely gifted individuals who are integral members in Christ’s body. Accordingly, our guiding vision for children is to include them in the life and work of the church so they can encounter Jesus. This begins with coming alongside parents to nurture each child’s relationship with Christ. We believe that parents, before any institution, have the primary responsibility for the spiritual nurture of their children; the church's role is to assist in the cooperative effort of that task. Please see the pages in the left navigation pane to better understand Common Ground's approach to Children's Ministry.
