said

 

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. - Matthew 19:14 NIV"

 

Grow

 

As our church family is growing, our children's departments are booming as well! What a praise! We at Crab Orchard Baptist Church are dedicated to helping our children grow in the Lord by planting seeds, teaching Bible stories, and helping them to live as Jesus did.

Specific

 

Throughout our church on Sunday mornings, Sunday nights, Wednesday nights and many other activities throughout the year, there is something for every child from birth through youth. Please see the following sections for more information on the different age group specific activities available for children and adults.

Nursery is available for Sunday morning first service (9:00-10:00), Sunday School (10:10-11:00), Sunday morning second service (11:30-12:30), Sunday evening service (6:30-7:30), and Wednesday evening service (6:30-7:30). The nursery is staffed with adult workers and youth helpers.  Pagers are available for your convenience.  You will be notified if you are needed before service ends. We like to mention that although we provide an excellent nursery service, children of all ages are welcome in all services and classes.  We know that sometimes this may be more comfortable for moms and dads.

The nursery is located at the entrance of the Activities Building on the Glen White Road side (opposite side from the 4 lane).

The toddlers then go into a smaller room with their teacher and a helper for their own Bible story and a simple craft. They then join the 4 & 5 year olds for snack time in the bigger room and prepare for Sunday School.

Toddler Church for the 11:30 service follows the same format except that children are in the worship service until the offering time. Once dismissed they will go with their teachers and helpers to the preschool for the same style of learning as the 09:00 service. Sunday School classes available during the Sunday School time (10:10 to 11:00.

Two through five year olds meet together on Sunday nights upstairs in the Kindergarten Department during the evening worship service (6:30-7:30.
