At the Canaan Christian Church the ministry to children and youth is of utmost importance for we recognize the fact that God loves and cares about children. Children are so significant to God that when Jesus wanted us to understand the meaning of discipleship He used children to help us gain the spiritual insight. It is in Proverbs 22:6 that we are told “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” At the Canaan church we understand our role as a church is to be a facilitator helping families to spiritually love and care for their children. It has been said “That it takes a village to raise a child.” We purpose to be that village!!!
