“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 19:14
Just as we must come as a child with no deeds of our own and accept the free gift of Christ’s salvation for our wickedness and sin, so we must care for and nurture our little ones in salvation and discipleship.
To insure that the services are disruption free, we offer beautiful nursery facilities in our “Early Child Learning Building”. Newborns through age 4 years have dedicated, caring workers who will carefully watch over their every need. Our ushers will gladly show you to the nursery.
Elmwood Baptist Church has well-staffed, loving nurseries, beautifully decorated and supplied for your children. Parents may enjoy the services, knowing their children are being well cared for.
Children’s church includes puppets, Bible stories, inspiring music, Bible drills, and a treasure box that can be dipped into by the winners of the Bible drills, first time visitors and birthday kids. There is a Bible Class at for all ages Sunday morning specially prepared for toddlers up to adults.
As part of our teaching of children we incorporate Master Club on Thursday nights at 7 pm. Master Club is a comprehensive Baptist based children’s ministry using King James Bible as the source for Bible memory and application programs to teach your children how to serve the Lord.
Master Club is headed up by Pastor Josh Lehman. Classes include Beginners Club (K4 – K5), Primaries Club (1st – 3rd grade), and Ambassadors Club (4th – 6th grade). All boys and girls are welcome. For more information on the the program, visit the official Master Club web site.
Looking Out For Your Childrens’ Safety
We care about your children. All of our children and youth workers undergo a criminal background check to ensure that your family will be in a safe environment when they attend our classes and activities at and through Elmwood Baptist.
