Childrens and youth ministries

Sunday school

Pestīšanas armijas svētdienas skolu mērķis ir palīdzēt bērnam iepazīt Dievu un Dieva Vārdu un saskatīt Dieva darbus pasaulē, kā arī sekmēt svētdienas skolas bērnu un skolotāju garīgo izaugsmi.
Mūsu misija ir vest bērnus dzīvā ticībā Jēzum Kristum:

Mūsu mērķis ir palīdzēt pilnveidot bērna garīgo, emocionālo, fizisko un sociālo labklājību.
Latvijā pašlaik darbojas 15 dažādi centri, kur bērniem ir iespēja radoši izpausties un piedalīties dažādās rīkotajās aktivitātēs korpusos un ārpus tiem.
Bērnos ir mūsu nākotne – šādam apgalvojumam katrā PA centrā cenšas sekot, pieņemot katru bez diskriminācijas un piedāvājot pozitīvu gaisotni izaugsmei un droši vidi kopā būšanai.

Youth work

Children and youth is our future and it is important to make them feel loved and give them a sense of belonging so that young people can reach their full potential and use their talents. There are different activities in the Salvation Army for youth. In some corps (churches) there are youth nights where young people come together, sing songs, form discussion groups and learn about God. Youth are challenged to take part in different social activities, like giving out hot drinks in the local neighbourhood on a cold winter day or organizing a fair where they can sell handmade things to raise money for a particular project. Youth are also motivated to use their talents by participating in different Christmas and Easter plays. They can learn new things by learning how to work with wood or make food or make decorations for various church events. They are encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle and several years in a row there have been cycling trips organized where young people can also participate. Regional camps and events are organized, where young people from all over Latvia can come and make new friendships, learn new things and together have some good time. The Salvation army is trying to create a place, where young people can feel like at home – to be loved and accepted the way they are.
