We value children as a much as we value every other age group. We believe that children are a blessing and a heritage from God.
Our vision for children and youth must be greater than the world’s vision. May it never be said of us that we stood by and watched while the world molded our children. Instead, may God use us to actively influence their hearts, so by grace they might become men and women of faith who know God and His glorious attributes and His infinite glory. May they be faithful followers of Christ who love the Bible, affirm its infallible worth, and grow in their abilities to understand, express, and defend its teachings. May they learn to worship the Lord with their heads and their hearts, and to fill their lives with prayer as they grow in faith and win the lost!
Our Teaching Process:
We desire to teach children through Scripture, worship, prayer, & service. We encourage parents to bring children into the worship service at the earliest possible age. Until children are ready to be trained in worship we offer the following classes:
Birth-24 months: Jesus Storybook Bible 2 years old (by September 1) – 3 years old: God’s Story Curriculum 4 years old (by September 1), Kindergarten, 1st grade: Gospel Story Curriculum 2nd-5th grades: We believe that families should worship together. By second grade, children are reaching a maturity to participate in an entire worship service. Children have an amazing ability to absorb information. Music and words will become familiar and the music and message will start to sink in. The service will allow parents a great opportunity to teach their children the great truths of our faith.
We will periodically update this page with articles of interest and content that we are reflecting on through our teaching and various ministries. In addition, please review our bookstore for current readings and recommended resources.

Consistent with the Westminster Shorter Catechism, our chief purpose is to glorify God and enjoy him forever through a local expression of the historic Christian church.
Southeast Brookhaven/Northeast Buckhead is home to 40,000 upwardly mobile non-Christian inhabitants and a large socio-economically disenfranchised population.
We are here to:
– Engage the community with the gospel
– Serve the physical and emotional needs of the community through mercy ministries
– To do these things by pursuing people in relationship and engage them in an intellectually thoughtful manner.
