Children/Youth Ministries

 Our church's Children and Youth Ministry has a theme to promote unity and growth:

Little Acorns (Infant - 2 years)

Planting the seed for future Christians!

 

We want our babies to hear about God and His love.  If we plant that seed early, we can help it grow into a wonderful tree that is full of faith.  Our goal is to grow strong Christians in the present, so they can continue to grow Christians in the future.  

 

Our nursery at Monuments Baptist Church is a warm, welcoming place for anyone who comes to feel safe leaving their child with us, so they may enjoy the service.  Our nursery is cleaned after every service.  Our workers are members, have had background checks, and are well known to us.  We treat every child with love and want their experience to be as nice as possible.  We hope that every parent feels 100% safe leaving their child with us and they know that their child will be loved and taught about God and His love.

Zac's Friends (Preschool 3yr - Kindergarten)

Teaching our children about Him...and other Bible characters, like Zacchaeus, along the way!

 Our preschool at Monuments Baptist Church is a warm, welcoming place for anyone who comes to feel safe leaving their child with us, so they may enjoy the service.  Our preschool is cleaned after every service.  Our workers are members, have had background checks, and are well known to us.  We treat every child with love and want their experience to be as nice as possible.  We hope that every parent feels 100% safe leaving their child with us and they know that their child will be loved and taught about God and His love.

Zac's Friends have Sunday School class. During morning worship, they have Zac's Friends' Church. This is a Children's Church geared toward the age level with plenty of music, Bible Story, Missions, games, and more.

Preschool uses Bible Studies for Life for Sunday School and WMU Mission Friends Curriculum for Wednesday Bible Study.

Radical Roots (1st-5th Grade)

Feeding those roots, so our children grow strong in faith.

 

Sunday School

At this time, we currently group Kindergartners in with the preschoolers. All ages are taught using Bible Studies for Life material. 

Children's Church

Instead of children sitting in the adult worship service, we offer Children’s Church.  This program allows children to learn about God and His love on their own level and with crafts and games built in.  The program teaches them in a way that prepares them for worship.  By the time the children reach 5th grade they are ready to exit Children’s Church and enter the main worship service.  Our Children’s Church is taught by rotating teachers and co-ordinated by Cathy Pence, the pastor’s wife.  All workers are background checked.  

 

Wednesdays 

On Wednesday evenings children can learn about God through games, songs, Bible lessons, and movies. We use Children in Action on Wednesday nights. (Kindergartners are taught in Mission Friends with the preschoolers on Wednesday nights.) Children learn about, give to, pray for, and do missions. Children work to earn badges and better themselves, the church, and the Kingdom of God in the process. This prepares the children for the youth department that they enter in 6th grade.

Swinging Vines (6th - 12th Grade)

Teaching our youth to spread the faith to others.

Our youth department is directed by Craig Kelch and Casey Phillips. The youth meet on Sunday mornings for Sunday School, on Wednesday evenings for Bible Study, and various times throughout the year to join in youth activities. On Sundays the youth use Bible Study for Life Curriculum for Sunday school. On Wednesdays the youth use Live Curriculum for Wednesday bible study.
