In today's world, kids are bombarded with external influences. As parents, there is an intense war for the hearts of your kids. The focus on God and His Word in this world is constantly under attack. If you are looking for a safe, Christ-centered environment where your children can learn from the Word of God, cultivate a respect for parents, and develop a love for others, we warmly invite you to come and learn more about our exciting Children’s ministries.
We believe that it is never too early to start guiding our children in "the way they should go." Starting at birth, children are welcomed to our beautiful and secure nursery. Every Sunday morning, Bible Baptist is the place to be! The fun and learning begins with Sunday School at 9:30 am and our Junior Church and Beginner’s Church at 10:30 am. Each service has a class for ages 3 through the 6th grade. We would love to have the opportunity to minister to your children! Here is what your kids can look forward to each week:
- Learning Biblical principles that your kids will be able to ground their lives on
- Spending time with teachers who genuinely love their students
- Making great friends
- Enjoying a wholesome environment and a loving atmosphere
- Providing an opportunity to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
- Learning practical truths that they can apply to their daily lives
Children are the next generation of our church. This is why the ministries we have for children here at Bible Baptist are very important to us. It is at this young age that children tend to be open and tender-hearted toward the Lord and His Word. It is our desire to lay the foundation for their understanding in areas of Salvation, Growth, and Service. At Bible Baptist we believe that children have the ability to learn about and serve God just like their parents can. We have many different aspects of ministry for our children that allow them to enjoy time with children of their own age. The lessons taught to the children are lessons that are delivered in such a way so that your child will be able to understand and easily apply that which is being taught. Basic lessons on creation, the love of Jesus, and the importance of obeying your parents are the norm. Your children will be able to enjoy various programs such as AWANA and Patch club where they will be taught great songs, important character lessons and vital truths from the Bible.
Our nursery facility is clean, secure, and staffed with friendly and trained volunteers. Parents can have peace of mind while they attend one of the adult Bible classes or the worship services. Bible Baptist Church has implemented a number of safety features and security measures to ensure that your child will have a safe, enjoyable experience while you attend our services. Volunteers who work with children are carefully interviewed, screened, and trained. Our goal is to take care of every child as if that child was our own.
Beginner Church (Ages 3 through Kindergarten)
It is amazing how much your child will learn in these classes specifically tailored for children from three to five years old. They will come home singing new songs, quoting verses they have memorized, displaying their crafts, and sharing with you important truths they are learning from the Bible. They will learn things like the importance of obedience, being kind, sharing, and even more important truths, like who Jesus is, and the fact that God loves them and made them for a unique purpose. The teachers and workers are trained, dedicated, compassionate, and excited to be a small part of the life of your child.
Junior Church (1st through 6th grade)
The children at Bible Baptist have the opportunity to enjoy a junior church service that is full of energy, enjoyment, and enthusiasm. Powerful truths from the Bible will be instilled in their hearts that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. They will memorize Scripture, participate in games, sing great dynamic songs, and make great friends. With lessons and Bible stories designed for their specific age group, parents can rest assured that their children will come home with a better understanding of God and His great love for them!
(Ages 3 Through 6th Grade)
BLAST Zone is a time for our kids to grow in Bible Learning and Spiritual Training in an explosively, exciting environment! BLAST Zone is staffed by some wonderful people at Bible Baptist who love kids and have a passion for teaching them how to have a relationship with the Lord. Our BLAST Zone is divided by age group, and we are sure that your child will enjoy learning and playing with other children their age. The kids enjoy fun songs, Scripture memory, and powerful lessons from the Word of God. BLAST Zone teaches kids how to explore the world through God’s Word by using the Kids4Truth curriculum. Our highest goal in BLAST is to train children to effectively live for God. We believe this can be accomplished through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and an intimate knowledge of Scripture. We also have a structured game time to allow children to expend energy and learn teamwork. The program is for children ages 4 through the 6th grade. Each class has age-appropriate teaching that engages your children on their level. BLAST Zone begins and ends with the Pinellas County school year. We have clubs from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm every Wednesday. Free bus or van transportation is available if you will contact the church office.
Children are very impressionable and we know that it is better for them to be imprinted in a Godly manner than in any other way. With parents’ busy work schedules, children’s extracurricular activities, and homework, it is hard to find time to teach a child every skill they need for life. This is why Bible Baptist has started its Himprints ministry. Himprints meets regularly with children from the ages of 9-11 for a time of refreshments, fellowship, and instruction. Himprints covers a variety of practical topics like caring for money, changing the oil in your car, changing a tire, baking desserts, cooking dinner, and using your manners. Check the schedule for the next Himprints meeting.
