The Arabic church of Houston puts a lot of emphasis on reaching out to the children, based on the calling of the Lord Jesus Christ: “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” - Matthew 19:14
We have Sunday School classes in English and Arabic for all ages as well as child care.
During the summer we conduct a week of Vacation Bible School.
Raja El Achi, our Minister of Missions and Children oversees this ministry.
Currently, during church services (Bible study on Fridays at 8 pm and regular Sunday worship services that start at 10:30 am), ACH has an active children ministry, whereby teachers provide the children from the infancy age up to 13 with special programs. These programs include songs, Bible stories with illustrations, games, memorization of Bible verses, crafts, drawing of Bible characters/events as well as DVDs of Christian stories from the Bible.
Plans are underway to expand this program beyond the church services to include special programs that are designed to reach out to the children such as Christian drama, Biblical stories presented as movies, animated programs, and other outreach programs such as camps and opportunities to travel to various places under a new recruited professional leadership in Christian children ministry. Our teachers underwent a series of development training led by Brother Raja El Achi towards that endeavor. Volunteers are needed all the time please contact us if you feel led to help.
