The Destiny House Series
“Train up your children in the way they should go”…so that they may be equip to go into the world and bring the world to the church! This is the basis of our current “Worldview” Curriculum here in Destiny House. Children are given a scriptural foundation and also an appreciation for other countries throughout the world. We strive to broaden their understanding of the vast differences and similarities of people groups; as a result we prepare them to be more effective witnesses of Christ to all races and cultures. “And he said unto them, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

Music & Fine Arts
Destiny House Children are encouraged to display their gifts through the avenue of singing, drama, artistry, etc. Children may participate in our Music & Fine Arts program once they have attended one of our quarterly auditions. For more information or for the date of our next audition please call extension. 1762

Hands of Mercy
Hands of Mercy is a ministry that provides programming and training developed by a qualified staff of professionals, designed to enhance the quality of life, for specially gifted children with Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury, Mental Retardation, Cerebral Palsy or Down’s Syndrome.

Baby Dedication
Destiny House offers a Baby Dedication Ceremony to our members with children ages 0-24 months. We believe that our Baby Dedication Ceremony is a parent’s public commitment made before God, family, friends and the congregation, of their choice to raise their child in the distinct awareness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as well as dedicate themselves to being Godly parents. For more information, please call extension 1762.

Children’s Water Baptism
We offer water baptism to our member’s children, ages 6 through 12. Baptism is the next step in their walk of faith. Every month we teach the reasons for and the benefits of water baptism, so to inform the children of a very important step in their pursuit of Christ. Children’s Baptisms are scheduled quarterly. The procedure for baptism is full submergence in water and is performed by qualified Elders. A parental consent form must be signed and submitted to Destiny House prior to the ceremony. For more information, please call extension 1072.
