It is amazing how much your child will learn in these classes specifically tailored for children. It is our goal to allow the Lord to work in the lives of children on a weekly basis, through the various Children’s Ministries at Southside Baptist Church.
The purposes of our Children’s Ministry are to help children to know God through salvation, to grow spiritually through the teaching of God’s Word, and to show maturity by bearing Christian fruit for the glory of God. This mission is accomplished through our Nursery, Sunday School, and Children’s Church ministries.
3 years old and under
Parents with young children under 3 years of age can take advantage of our Nursery offered during all services at Southside. The children will be cared for by several ladies of the church, all of whom have completed a background check. While very young children will have their special needs met, older nursery children will play with their peers, enjoy a snack (if provided by the parents), and learn about the Lord through stories and activities. Each parent will receive a pager so that the nursery attendants can easily contact you if there is a need.
School Age Children
School-aged children will be able to attend a Sunday School class specific to their grade level. Each child will have a caring teacher who will help your child to learn the Bible in a way that they can easily understand. Sunday school begins at 10:00 a.m. in the building closest to the parking lot. You are welcome to drop your children off early so you can attend an Adult Bible class as well.
Children’s Church is designed for children in kindergarten through sixth grade and takes place during the Sunday morning worship service. It is our conviction that the greatest truth we could ever share with a child is the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And yet, salvation is just the beginning! It is our desire to encourage real spiritual growth in every area of a child’s life in a way that each child can understand. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. All classes will sing God-honoring songs, enjoy a principled puppet show, receive a lesson from the Bible, and participate in fun lesson review games to solidify their learning.
Children have a very special place in the heart of God, and it is our desire to honor God by serving and loving each child in a Christ honoring way. It would be our pleasure to teach your children in our Nursery, Sunday School, and Children’s Church ministries!
