Brookside Chruch
Pursuing Christ Together!

The Market

The mission of Brookside Church’s Children’s Ministry is to move children closer to God through Jesus Christ. We envision Brookside Children’s Ministries to partner with parents to train and equip children to desire God. We want kids to love coming to church to learn about God, His Son Jesus Christ, the Bible and the church family. Market Money is a positive incentive system to encourage kids to develop personal discipleship habits that will stay with them in their teenage years and beyond, even after the age is reached when rewards are no longer needed. Our hope is that this type of reward system will encourage them to dive into their Bibles on a regular basis and increase Biblical literacy as they experience the changing power of the Holy Spirit through His Word.
