Our Nursery: 9:45-11:00; Birth-age 3 (potty trained)
Welcome to the Nursery at Second Baptist Church. Our goal is to provide a safe, Christian atmosphere for the smallest members of our church.
Babies are born wired for learning. What we do is provide the appropriate information and experiences to help them learn about God. While babies cannot memorize scripture or understand abstract ideas, they can learn God loves them, God gives them people to care for them, and Jesus, God's Son, wants to be their very best Friend. Our nursery offers consistent and attentive caregivers, music, toys and books.We begin to introduce the children to Bible stories and songs.It is important to have each child feel comfortable, secure,and special as they learn to play and share with other children.We help each child have positive feelings about coming to church and to encourage the active participation of parents in worship, teaching, and other church activities.
We hope that our loving care of your children will enable you to relax and enjoy the service. Our Baby Nursery is staffed by adults in a soft-carpeted room that is stocked with changing table, crib, rockers, sanitized age appropriate toys, and state of the art remote pagers! It is available for the 10 o'clock worship hour.
Ages 3 - 1st grade
Welcome to the 3 yr. old to Kindegarten program at Second Baptist Church. We meet in room 305. Our goal is to provide a place where young children will feel welcome and cared for, learn to work, play and do things together, and learn that the Bible is important to people in the church, has many stories about God and Jesus, and teaches us how to grow in God's ways.
Each Sunday we will use prayer, music and stories from the bible. Children will use building blocks to make a road -- and welcome Jesus' triumphant entry! They'll rescue dolls from Daniel's Lion's Den -- and discover they can trust God. They'll shake blue paper to sound like stormy seas--and learn that God helps them when they're afraid. Each Play-n-Worship lesson uses objects from a preschooler's everyday world--plus play, fun, stories, and songs.
Children will leave the service after the Children's Talk and can be picked up in Room 305.
