11th Street Baptist Kid’s Ministry  

Our efforts to discipling children consist of us 

  1.     Equipping parents to disciple their children
  2.     Leading age-appropriate and strategic church activities for children
  3.     Providing moments for intergenerational ministry 

Children’s Church

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.

Volume 7 Unit 19.
Key Passage (memory verse) – John 1:1-2
Big Picture Question – Is Jesus God or a human? As the Son of God, Jesus is both fully God and fully human.

Easter Sunday: No Children’s Church

April 11, 2021 –
Unit 19, Session 4: Jesus was Dedicated (Luke 2)
Throughout the Old Testament, God promised the arrival of a king who would redeem people. When Jesus arrived, Simeon and Anna knew He was the promised Messiah. Today, we have faith that Jesus is God’s Son. We can trust Jesus for our salvation, and like Simeon and Anna, we should share the good news.

April 18, 2021 –
Unit 19, Session 5: Jesus as a Child (Matthew 2; Luke 2)
God sent Jesus to earth with a purpose. Even as a child, Jesus wanted to honor God. God blessed Jesus as He got ready to follow His Father’s plan: to die on the cross and rescue people from sin.

Family Worship

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.

Church Activities 

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.

Current Church Activities: Every month after Sunday morning worship service, we have a kid’s activity that coincides with our mission emphasis. During these events, we eat snacks from the country we are studying, play their games, and participate in missional crafts. We also discuss God’s word together during these moments. 

Intergenerational Ministry 

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. 

Current Opportunities for Intergenerational Ministry: Currently, our Sunday morning worship service, Sunday night Bible Study, and Wednesday night prayer night are intergenerational due to COVID-19. We distribute to all children who attend Sunday morning service a sanitized box with age-appropriate activities related to our mission’s emphasis. We provide snacks upon request.
