Children are a gift from God (Ps. 127:3). We know the care for your child is important…and rightly so. We strive to have clean, well-run nurseries and classes for your children. Also, we require that every adult worker at Lexington Baptist Church go through a background check. We trust that our care for your children will put you at ease and also that we will be able to reinforce what is taught at home.
Lexington Baptist Church has something for all ages during our Sunday school hour. From nursery to classes for little ones from two years old to 8th grade, we have a class with a faithful teacher and godly, age-appropriate lessons.
During the morning service, we also offer a children’s church. Those in the nursery or our younger classes (ages 2-4) will stay in a class geared for them during the entire morning service. Children aged 5 to 7, start in the morning worship to sing with their family and then will be dismissed to their class during the service.
Of course, parents are always welcome to keep their children with them during the morning service. We encourage our parents to make the choice that is best for their child’s spiritual growth. Regardless if your children stay in the morning service or if they attend children’s church, rest assured that the Word of God will be taught.
Before we get into what AWANA is about, we need to make sure you know about a big change happening. This year we are moving our AWANA program to Sunday nights (5:30-7:00pm). We hope that this change will be a help to your family.
For those of you that are new to AWANA, I want to welcome you and your child to our Awana clubs. You will find that Awana provides the context for your child to make new friends, play exciting games, compete in rewarding and challenging contests, receive awards as reinforcement for his or her hard work, and most importantly, learn and memorize God’s Word, the Bible.
All of our children and youth workers have been trained in Child Protection policies and have gone through a strict application process and background checks. We want you and your children to feel safe.
Our volunteer leaders are trained by the Awana organization and are knowledgeable in the workings of the Awana ministry. Your assistance in helping your child memorize his or her sections will be greatly appreciated and will prove to be a special time for both you and your child.
The Awana ministry consists of six clubs
- Puggles – 2 – 3 years old
- Cubbies – Preschoolers ages 3through 4 years old
- Sparks – Kindergarten through 2nd grade
- Truth &Training clubs – 3rd through 6th grade
- Trek- 7th and 8th grades
- Journey – 9th through 12th grade
We pray this program is a great blessing to you and your family. Thank you for allowing your child to attend our Awana clubs. To register your little ones, click the link below.
