Let the children come to me, for to such as these belongs the Kingdom of God. (Mark 10:14)
Jesus made it clear then and today that the children come first. Why? Because it is in and through them the field of God’s dream takes root and emerges. That field here at the Royal Poinciana Chapel is fertile, tillable, and is where the seeds of God’s love are being planted, watered and nurtured so that they can take root, grow and bear fruit. The Chapel’s ministry to the youngest among us, their friends and families continues to be a source of joy and a sign of the Chapel’s growth and vitality.
