The mission of our Next Generation ministry is to point our covenant children from birth to the hope found only in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We desire to come alongside parents as they seek to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Safe, compassionate, Christ-exalting care for our children is a top priority for Decatur Presbyterian.
