Children’s Ministry

Core Values

The Children’s Ministry is centered around these core values: God’s Word, Discipleship, Mentoring, Application of Knowledge, Fellowship, Developing the Individual, Love, Missions, Accountability, Excellence, Hospitality, Evangelism, Prayer, Worship, Acceptance, Community, Service, and Family.

Mission

Our Mission is to lead children to become growing followers of Christ, preparing them to be used by God, to change their lives, their friends and families’ lives, to build the church, and impact the world.

Strategy

We follow a three prong strategy with our children’s ministry: Reach, Grow, Lead. We reach out to children in the community through monthly fellowship events, encourage growth and discipleship in Christ through GROW Kids, Children’s and Junior Church, and Sunday School, and promote leadership through service projects, serving in church, and mission trips.

So what does that mean my child will be doing?

Children’s activities focus on developing fellowship, learning about the Word of God, and helping share God’s love and Word through outreach. In addition to our weekly events here are some of the activities we’ve done in the past few years:

Fellowship

  • An annual birthday party for Jesus each December
  • Trips to BounceU in Greensboro and the YMCA for fun and fellowship
  • Children’s Camp at Uplands Reach Camp for one week each summer
  • Children’s Easter Egg Celebration
  • End of School Celebration complete with TeamKIDS awards!
  • Last but not least, our awesome Fall Festival in October

Discipleship

  • A backyard Bible school in Johnson City, TN for area children
  • Annual Vacation Bible School each summer
  • Children’s Day Camp (every Tuesday in July)
  • Student Revivals

Service

  • A Christmas party for residents at the Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville, NC
  • Letters to troops overseas
  • Infant gifts for local pregnancy centers
