Children's Ministry Programs

 

Sunday School

Our Sunday School Volunteer Teachers use curriculum that helps the children best understand how God sent His Son to die for us to cover our sins so that one day we will be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Our teachers use a variety of methods to help teach this concept. The teachers use telling Bible stories, making crafts, singing, and playing to convey each Sunday School lesson. Our children 2 years - 2nd grade use curriculum from David Cook. Our 3rd-5th grade children use Explore the Bible from LifeWay.

 

Nurseries

Our trained nursery teachers give the best care to our youngest children at church. They also start teaching the little ones about God with telling Bible stories, singing, and coordinated activities. We accept babies 6 weeks - 2 years in our baby nurseries and they meet during Sunday School and Worship Services on Sunday mornings. The 2-3 year old Sunday School stays in their same room for Worship Service on Sunday mornings. They are introduced to a new story and play time during the main worship time.

 

Children's Church

We dismiss children 4 years-2nd grade after the time of singing in the main Worship service on Sunday morning. These children go with a volunteer teacher to their own room to continue their learning about God's Word.

 

Children's Mission Class

This class meets on Sunday evenings during the evening worship time. The class is for 4 years-5th grade children. The children study about missionaries, how the BMA churches support their missionaries in the field, and how the children can help with missions in their own church and town.

 

All Stars for Jesus

All Stars meets every Wednesday from 6:15 pm until 7:30 pm during the school year. "All Stars for Jesus" encourages members to develop their gifts and learn new skills through creative Bible study, singing, and activity time.

 

Vacation Bible School

Our week long event is held during the 2nd week of June every year in the evenings. This is an exciting way for children K-5th grades from all over town come to have new experiences while learning more about how God's love people all over the world and in our own city. Each year's event is full of energetic activities, songs and praises, and experiencing Bible stories like they never have before!

 

Quarterly Events

Our Children's Ministry Team coordinates events for our families and those they invite to enjoy learning about God on a larger scale. Each year LakeRidge Baptist holds a Family Easter Event which includes a lite breakfast, activity, the Easter Story, and ends with an egg hunt outside. Every October we hold a "drive-in-movie" in the gym for the entire family. Popcorn and snacks are served while the kids can lay on blankets and pillows.
