The Springs serves as the Children’s and Youth Ministry at Jacob’s Well Community Church. It’s our goal that kids leave The Springs each Sunday with a better understanding of the truth about God, and that this understanding is developed through talking with their parents throughout the week, helping families live into our vision of being a people growing into Christ’s likeness for the sake of our community and the world.
By following the example set forth by Jesus when he said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19.14), The Springs is dedicated to the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of the students entrusted to the ministry, helping children and students as they learn about God, establish and develop a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ, and form meaningful friendships with their peers.
We begin each Sunday by joining in worship with the entire church before the children head to The Springs in the church basement. Then the kids sing together before being dismissed to their classes for lesson time. During lessons we learn the truth about God, the world, and ourselves from the Bible. We love to incorporate roleplay and storytelling to share God’s Word. After lesson time we reinforce the day’s lesson through games, crafts, and memory verses before kids head home for the week.
