"Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
"Connecting a New Generation to Jesus" is the vision of BBC for our children. It is based on Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it."
Our children are our greatest blessing and responsibility. We take this responsibility very seriously. The following are ways in which we follow our vision and mission for all children from birth through 5th grade.
Weekly Activities for CHildren
SUNDAY SCHOOL SMALL GROUPS—
The next step that children could greatly benefit from is to become part of a Small Group. Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 AM, we have age-graded classes for babies through fifth grade. These classes are designed to be focused and help children apply the Bible to their lives.
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP SERVICE TIME
Group 1: NURSERY (Babies - 35 months) and Group 2: Preschool (Age3 - K) is for babies through Kindergarten. Children experience the love of God through stories, play-time, music and interactive activities. A full children's ministry program is offered for babies through Kindergarten during the Sunday morning worship celebration at 10:30AM.
BBC Children's Mid-week Ministry will be from 6:30- 7:45 each Wednesday night. We have launched a new ministry designed just for kids called, Jump Start! This new program features active music, bible study, bible memorization and game time. This program runs during the school year from August through May.
This event has grown to be our largest Children's event for the summer. Camp for 2018 was in July and saw 170+ children register with an average attendance of 127. We want to thank the Beavercreek Schools for allowing us to use a school gym for this event. We also want to thank our partner churches is Tennessee for coming to help make this camp happen.
The 2018 camp was themed, Brush Up On Your Skills. Children learned/reviewed their basketball skills and learned hos God loves us. In keeping with the theme children also brought in tooth brushes and hair brushes for Operation Christmas Child boxes. The kids brought in over 1700 brushes. WOW!!
For 2019, basketball camp is targeted for July 8 - 11.
