We believe that each member of God’s family has a unique and God-given role to fulfill in glorifying God. Our Children’s Ministry strives to assist parents in teaching their children about their special place in God’s family by teaching basic biblical principles to exemplify God’s Word. In this respect, each volunteer, staff member and teacher is to be a living testimony that God has graced His children with the ability to learn about His creation and His goodness.
The Preschool Ministry uses five basic truths for teaching during the preschool years:
God Made Everything! - God is the Creator.
God Made Me Just Right! - We are God’s children.
Jesus is My Friend! - Jesus is the Son of God and He loves us.
I can learn about the Lord Jesus in the Bible! - God’s Word is perfect.
I can tell people about Jesus! - God has commissioned us to witness to the world.
These lessons are taught during each Preschool Ministry event and repeated respectively during each Sunday School and Worship session. Through repetition and the use of numerous visual aids, we have been able to teach even the smallest of little ones.
(Kindergarten -5th Grade)
The goal in the children’s area is to solidify the truth of God’s word using practical life application and reinforcing biblical truths.
Kindergarten through 3rd grade learn through music, crafts, bible study and missions while 4th and 5th grade are intentional about understanding basic biblical principles in the beginning of their preteen years.
South Side Baptist Church offers Awana Truthseekers on Wednesday nights for our children. Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children and youth who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Truthseekers focuses on evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community.
