Sundays at 9:15 AM for all ages
We offer developmentally specific discipleship for all ages, including kids! Through the "Explore the Bible Series" our children get to walk through some of the greatest stories in scripture. Not only do they learn some of the most important lessons is scripture but they study the same passages as their parents and siblings. This gives families more opportunity to have spiritual conversations at home! It's just one way that we try to empower parents to lead their child spiritually and foster their growth!
Mother's Day Out
Paused until further notice
Southwest Park Baptist Church's Mother's Day Out program also
known as "His Little Kids" is a wonderful opportunity for children ages
8 weeks through Pre-K. His Little Kids provides a developmentally
appropriate atmosphere to nurture your child's spiritual, emotional,
social and cognitive growth. Our program includes a Bible curriculum
as well as Early Childhood curriculum based on guidelines provided
by the National Association for Early Childhood Education.
Some of the activities your students would experience include: arts & crafts, guided play, music, Bible lessons, story time, and cooking. These activities help build motor, social, cognitive
and language development in young children.
Our priority at Southwest Park is to show your child the love of God in a safe, educational, Christian atmosphere. Every classroom is staffed by two teachers, so that they may focus on giving your little one the individualized attention they deserve. We want to ignite in them an excitement for learning and for following God's plan for their precious life.
We have paused our program until the fall. Please check back for updates! There is a $75 registration fee that will cover your child's supplies for the year. Our tuition for full enrollment is $145 a month, or for one day a week is $75 a month. There is also a "drop-in" option which is $20 a day. We do offer a 10% (after the first child) discount for families with multiple children enrolled in our program. We also offer a special foster family discount (please speak with the director.) We ask that you call ahead and arrange with the director on dates you you like to drop in your child to make sure there is availability.
Please contact the His Little Kids Director, Denise Neal, with any questions at 325-692-3296.
Children in Action
In August 2017, we moved to the Children in Action mission education organization that is part of the WMU curriculum. Our Mission Education teachers are excited about this new direction combining the boys and girls and then dividing them by age groups to allow for age appropriate teaching/learning activities. Children in Action is an exciting and fun-filled coed missions education organization for boys and girls in grades 1–5.
Through Children in Action, boys and girls gain a greater understanding of God’s work in the world and how they can join Him in His work. Children in Action learn about the world, pray for the world, and learn how they can be used to tell others about God’s Son, Jesus
Countless boys and girls have been a part of Children in Action since it began in 1995. These children grow into adults who impact their world for Christ. Many lives have been changed as children and their leaders have prayed for, given to, and participated in mission education and hands-on mission involvement. As Children in Action meet and learn together, they “travel” to various places around the world learning about the work of missionaries, praying for others, learning what the Bible says about missions and serving others, and learning what they can do in their own communities to serve and share Jesus with others. Children in Action helps boys and girls gain a biblical worldview that challenges them to live a “missions” lifestyle everywhere they go and in whatever they may do.
On Wednesday evenings during the summer, children who have completed K-5th grade can participate in Centershot. Certified instructors will teach foundational archery skills and dedicated volunteers will lead them to discover the wonderful life lessons in the Word of God. NO COST!
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
August 9-13, 2020 6:30pm to 8:00pm
GRAB YOUR HARD HAT AND TOOL BELT!
Join us Sunday, July 19 to Thursday, July 23 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
As kids explore a world of concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes, they will learn to build their faith on Jesus as they uncover the truth that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion.
This year we are planning a “Family Style” VBS.
We will all gather in the Family Center and sit families together at tables to provide adequate spacing. This will help us address the recommendations for gathering due to the Corona Virus.
All of our teaching will happen from the stage. You will join in on the fun from your table and we will be set up to engage children in grades 1-6, but we will include some appropriate materials for the younger children. Our hope is that the younger children will enjoy VBS with their family.
We will have a slate of teachers to instruct us throughout the week as we uncover and build our lives on the truths discovered in the Word of God.
We will have a music team that will lead us in worship as well as high energy songs and motions that will take it up a notch and help us apply what we learn each day through music.
We will be challenged to continue to Pray, Send, Give and Go in missions and ministry each night.
We will enjoy a time of crafts to apply the daily lesson in our lives. And compete in some crazy table games to kick off our time together each night.
You won’t want to miss this exciting new way for us to encourage our children and engage our families in VBS.
We do want you to invite other families to join us and if parents cannot make it you can invite their children to come along and be a part of your family and sit with you at your table.
If we have children who register without a parent, grandparent, or guardian to be with them they will be assigned a table and one of our Adult Volunteers who has passed a screening each night will be assigned to assist the children at that table the whole week.
These times call on us to be creative in our ministry and I hope that this will be another amazing opportunity to reach out to our children and families with the Gospel Message.
We will have preschool care for babies to 3 years old for our volunteers and families who bring their older children to VBS. The little ones can remain with the family if you desire.
Please register to attend before July 8 so that we can prepare for your family.
You can do this on the Church Center App or the link that is available at southwestpark.org under Children’s Ministry Tab. You can sign up to purchase a copy of the Concrete and Cranes Kids Music CD for $3.00 when you register.
