The Kids’ 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)
Kids And Worship
Families have the option to attend worship together at either 9:00 am or at 10:30 am. Our children have the opportunity to sit with their families in corporate worship on Sunday mornings We believe that moms and dads are working with the church to teach their children how to worship. The children’s ministry area can come alongside families who need help in guiding children in worship. Worship is a celebration time of showing praise and honor to the Lord where all family members participate together.
Sunday Gospel Groups
After families select which hour they will attend worship together, they will attend age-graded Gospel Groups at the other time period (either 9:00 or 10:30 am). Children begin in their individual classes on the third floor of the educational wing. In the middle of the Gospel Group time, all the children join together to study God’s word through drama, Bible reading, and music. Children return to their grade-level Gospel Groups and talk about the application of the Bible study for the day. The great news is that while the children are studying the Bible in their Gospel Groups, their parents are in their adult groups studying the same Scripture passage. Parents pick up their children following the Gospel Group Times.
For your child’s safety and to save you time, print the Pre-Registration Form form, fill it out, and bring it with you on Sunday.
What We Teach
We use the Gospel Project curriculum which is a 3-year chronological plan through the grand narrative of Scripture.
Since all ages are united around this curriculum, it sets up your family to have family discipleship conversations all throughout the day and keeps continuity as your child grows.
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 events to draw families together. We counsel children regarding salvation while preparing the parents to feel competent in leading their own children to know Christ as Savior.
