an apartment ministry in Roswell, GA
Weekly Bible-based club for kids in K-5th grade.
We meet one afternoon each week to teach the kids about God and His Word. Kids are involved in a time of praise and worship, prayer and Bible teaching on their age level. We walk through the Bible, story by story, from school year to school year. Following the Bible teaching, kids are involved in hands-on learning of that story. We allow kids to be creative and complete a project to bring home to review and share the Bible teaching with their families. Kids are also given snacks as they leave the apartment.
For middle school/high school kids
We meet once a week with our middle school and high school kids to share a snack from the kitchen and a meal from God’s Word together. This time together is full of fun, fellowship and Bible Study! Students join Mealtime by invitation only as we have room. Currently, we have four small groups of 6-8 students with one-two adult mentors.
In this age group we also plan special events with the kids such as bowling, out-to-eat, spend-the-night parties, serving events and leadership training opportunities.
A weekly ministry to help kids in grades K-8 to complete and understand their homework.
Most of our kids have parents who only speak and understand Spanish. When their child brings homework to complete, parents do not know how to help. This is where our ministry “fits” in. We help bridge that gap between parent and child by helping the kids understand and finish their homework packets and assignments.
Our goal is for 1-3 kids to have one adult or high-schooler helping them to experience success with their school work. Homework Help meets one afternoon per week.
We have been serving these children in ministry for over 6 school years now. Initially we were bussing them in to a suburban church environment. We included them in children’s church, Sunday school, Pioneer Clubs, special seasonal activities, Upward Basketball and Cheerleading, Performing Arts Camps, Camp Rocks!, and middle school ministries.
We brought them to the church several times weekly and saw tremendous growth in their lives through the years. It was, however, difficult to incorporate them fully into a suburban church with people of different backgrounds. We felt God leading us and pulling our hearts to work with these kids on a more regular basis. We also felt the need to GO TO THEM.
We feel God has brought them to the United States and ultimately to Roswell, Georgia so they could learn of HIS great love for them.
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17; Matthew 28:19).
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:18-23).
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that we were created in the image of God; that we sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born in sin, and that this sinful nature is the origin of all sinful acts in thought, word, and deed (Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:12; Isaiah 59:2-4; Romans 6:23).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in him are justified on the grounds of his shed blood
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of and indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God (John 1:12; Romans 8:9). The person of the Holy Spirit Himself is God’s “gift” to every Christ-follower at the moment of the New Birth (Acts 2;38; 10:45) and His indwelling creates the new nature within the believer which produces true sanctification and the development of spiritual fruit as He graciously equips for service (Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 5:9, John 5:2-16).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ and his ascension to Heaven, and in his present work as High Priest and advocate
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 4:14-16).
We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just to everlasting blessedness, and the unjust to everlasting punishment (Acts 24:15; Revelation 20:15; Romans 6:23).
