Elementary (Grades 1-5)
The Elementary Ministry exists as part of the broader Family Ministry of Desert Springs Church (DSC). As we minister to the children that God has placed under our care, we seek to guide them to an understanding of the glory and majesty of God as seen in His perfect character and as revealed in His Son, Jesus Christ. Recognizing that God has given parents the primary responsibility for the spiritual instruction and discipline of children, we intend to partner with families in the process of teaching and training children in hope that they will one day, "...put their confidence in God..." (Psalm 78:7).
Through Teaching and Modeling the Good News of God's Love through Christ, Our Passion Is to Develop in Each Child:
- A growing awareness of the greatness of God's character
- A growing understanding of who Jesus is
- A growing desire to be more Christ-like
- A growing desire to serve God and others
- A growing awareness of sin and its consequences
- A growing awareness of the need for a personal relationship with Him
- A growing understanding of God's Word and love for it
- A growing desire to share the gospel message
