Our efforts to discipling children consist of us
Our church also facilitates age-appropriate and strategic church activities for children. We believe that teaching children age-appropriate Bible lessons and mission stories are vital for a child’s growth in knowledge and love for the Lord since these moments allow children to interact with biblical content in age-appropriate ways. Thus, although the Bible does not speak about this type of ministry, we believe it is wise to facilitate it.
We have Children’s Church available (most Sunday mornings) for children four years old through six grade during the sermon time with age appropriate Bible teaching. We encourage families to discuss what the children have learned each week. You can download the Lifeway Kids app and download free games and activities for the lessons each week (see instructions below). Here’s an abbreviated version of this weeks lesson.

God commands parents to disciple their children (Deuteronomy 4:9-10, 6:7, 11:19; Proverbs 1-9; Ephesians 6:4). Parents should be accustomed to talking about God informally – while driving the car, for example. Parents should also have planned moments to pray, read God’s word, and to sing together. We know that family worship is not always easy. Thus, one of the main goals of the children’s ministry at 11th Street Baptist is to equip parents to flourish in the God-given privilege and responsibility of discipling their children.
The Scripture assumes that the believers from different generations will interact together (see Acts 20:9; Titus 2:3-4; 1 Timothy 5:1; 1 Peter 5:5). Thus, it is our conviction that there should be moments in the life of the church where all generations are present together to learn about God’s word and to be transformed by it.
