Making disciples of the youngest among us is crucial. This is the next generation and we want to pass the baton of the gospel on to them effectively. To that end, BG Kids aims to help parents and kids love and live the gospel of Jesus Christ.
OUR VISION: to create a safe and encouraging environment where children can learn God’s word.
OUR MISSION: to compel children to become disciples of Jesus who love God, love one another and love the world around them.
BG Kids provides opportunities for children from 6 months through 6th grade during the morning services. Parents can easily find the clearly identified areas where children are checked into their classrooms.
Parents will receive a security tag and a nametag to place on their children’s back. Both tags are required to check your kids in and out of BG Kids, so keep track of those things! We’ll also flash your number on the screen if we need to get a hold of you during the service.
During class children have fun singing songs, enjoying age-appropriate activities, and learning engaging lessons from God’s word. The ministry follows The Gospel Project curriculum, which keeps the person and work of Christ central in every OT and NT lesson. 4th-6th grade students join the adults for corporate worship; before the sermon begins, they’ll be sent with their teachers to their classroom.
If you have any questions, our registration workers are waiting to help you when you come!
