The Christian Education program of the Ligonier Christian Church seeks to provide comprehensive support to children, teens, and families as they grow in knowledge and faith. Through a combination of thoughtful studies, creative activities, challenging objectives, and extra-curricular activities, the church seeks to support the spiritual formation of all concerned.

The spiritual underpinning of the L.I.F.T. ministry is the example and teaching of Jesus.

Jesus grew. “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52, NIV).

Jesus commanded. “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. ’This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39, NIV).

The attitude toward loving and spiritually educating our children and teens is rooted in relationships.

Jesus loves children. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it” (Luke 18:15-17, NIV).

Parents train children. “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6, NIV).

God provides for children. “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread” (Psalm 37:25, NIV).
