I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting Valley Baptist Church’s website. We believe that children are a blessing from the Lord (Ps. 127:3-5). Ultimately, we believe it is the parent’s responsibility to raise and disciple their children (Deut. 6:4-9). In order to help you in this journey, Valley Baptist Church has a few options for children during our worship services:
The first option is the main sanctuary. Children are always welcome to worship with their parent(s) or guardian(s) in the main sanctuary. Please do not feel bad if you need to leave and return during the worship service for the purpose of quieting down or instructing your child.
The second option is to listen to the message from a remote location. The message can be heard in the foyer and kitchen. There is a live video feed in the nursery if you have a restless infant or toddler. Also, during the 10:30 service, there are adults in the nursery to watch children under 2 years of age.
Finally, during the 10:30 worship service there are Bible studies for children between the ages of 2-12. All children start in the sanctuary for worship and are dismissed after the announcements. All ages are working through materials created by Answers in Genesis. This three-year Sunday school program covers the entire Bible in chronological order. It provides answers to the issues that confront today’s culture through the media, school, friends, etc. Answers Bible Curriculum provides a thorough understanding of the authority and primary teachings of Scripture. All ages will be equipped to defend the Bible, and become conformed to the image of Christ, as they apply God’s Word in their everyday lives.
God has entrusted us to teach the next generation about Him. We pray that all of our younger ones grow to love Jesus more and more through their time here at Valley Baptist Church! Please let us know how we can help you in this very awesome journey.
Sincerely in Christ,
Gunnar Hanson, Senior Pastor
