The Children’s Ministry at Rocky Creek Baptist exists to make disciples who love, grow, and serve through intentional relationships. We accomplish this by helping children live the way Jesus lived:
- Love – Love God and Love Others (Mark 12:20 and John 13:34)
- Grow – Grow in Your Faith (John 15:4 and 2 Timothy 2:15)
- Serve – Serve Personally, with Family, and with the Church (Matthew 28:19-20)
Sunday Bible Study
We kick off our children’s activities on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. in room 364 with an “on-time drawing” used to encourage families to make our 9:00 a.m. start time a priority. Children in grades 1-5 first meet together in a large group setting for announcements and to focus on a weekly memory verse. Children are then dismissed to attend an age-graded small group Bible study with teachers who are intentional about teaching the Bible and building relationships with the children.
Sunday Children’s Church
Our 1st-3rd graders have the opportunity to sit with their families in corporate worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. for the entire service or to be dismissed after our music and offering to attend a kid-friendly sermon and to participate in worship on their own level. Children are escorted by children’s church leaders to room 364, and parents pick up their children in room 364 at the conclusion of worship.
Wednesdays with Music and Missions
In order to put hands and feet on our mission statement, our children are engaged in hands-on activities on Wednesday night from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Each week, children participate in learning about missions and in preparing to engage in missions. Children learn to express praise and love to God through their music and by using their music to minister to others.
Our children’s ministry involves the parent in the process of growing children who love, grow, and serve by living the way Jesus did. Throughout the year, there are quarterly events to draw families together. We offer parenting classes and offer to counsel children regarding salvation while preparing the parents to feel competent in leading their own children to know Christ as Savior.
