At Gather & Grow we believe in the Good News of salvation. Yet we know this large concept can be hard for kids to understand. So we created six, simple Gospel checkpoints you can use along the discipleship journey of your children. Over the years (as they are ready) plants these seeds, water them with authenticity + prayer, and trust they will grow into a beautiful faith that thrives.
Point your kids in the right direction and when they are old, they won’t be lost. Proverbs 22:6 MSG

You have unique gifts + a specific purpose. (Ephesians 2:10, 1 Peter 4:10)

Salvation Prayer for Kids
Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me and dying on the cross for my sins. Today I accept your gift of salvation and I invite you to be the King of my heart. Please forgive me of my sins and guide me as I grow in friendship with you. Jesus, I want to be more like you and share your love with others. Thank you that I don’t have to be perfect but can grow in faith as I follow your ways. Thank you that because of your love and sacrifice, we will be together in heaven someday. In your name I pray, amen.
