Our vision for the children and families of VEFC is generations of godliness. We want to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ transform children and entire families for generations and generations to come. Our vision here at VEFC echos the vision David penned in Psalm 145:4-7:
One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
Our desire from nursery to youth is to teach the whole counsel of God, with a strong emphasis on the Gospel. Our desire is that children (and their parents!) will declare God's mighty acts and greatness to one another. All of our ministries and teaching are designed for that purpose. Whether it be teaching theology, memorizing Scripture, singing songs, or simply having fun--everything we do is to show children Jesus so that they can know Him, believe in Him, and live for Him for all eternity. That is our hope and prayer for our children's ministy.
