I'm New Here
Info for our Guests
We are so thankful that you are interested in checking out what God is doing at Erlanger Baptist Church - specifically in the lives of children. As a parent myself, I fully understand the importance of quality ministry and care for your precious children. It is my hope that the following information will give you a clear sense about where to go and what to do with your children when you arrive on our campus.
When you arrive on campus, plan to bring your family to the Preschool & Children's Ministry Area - Entrance A. There are two sets of doors (enter thru the doors on the right). Once you enter, proceed down the hallway, take the first left and there you will find the Preschool Welcome and Check-In Desk. (If you only have elementary-age children then these volunteers will direct you to their ministry area).
At the Welcome Desk you will be asked to fill out a Registration Form for each child. Then our volunteers will print out a name badge for each child and a security tag that you will use to pick-up your child(ren). Then our volunteers will guide you to the appropriate class for each child.
When you are ready to depart, you will return to the classroom where your child is located, show your security tag, receive your child(ren) and be ready to head home.
If you want to save some time you may print and fill out this document ahead of time and bring it with you.
Preschool Lifegroups (birth - Pre-K)
Sundays @ 9:15am
Our preschool ministry is designed for children beginning at birth through age 5 (pre-Kindergarten). Learning to walk, acquiring language, discovering the world, and developing a love for Jesus are just a few things these precious children are doing. We know that parents are most anxious about entrusting their youngest children into someone else's care. Therefore, we strive to make this step as comfortable as possible. God has equipped this team to rise up to this mission through creatively and dynamically sharing God's word in ways that engage and equip these children for a life with Christ. We look forward to meeting your precious child and partnering with you in introducing them to Jesus.
Children's Lifegroups (K-6th grade)
Sundays @ 9:15am
Our church and our volunteers take ministry to children seriously. We recognize that this time in their lives is the best time to reach them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and help them grow in their knowledge of the Bible and in their love for God. When you walk into one of our Elementary Lifegroups, you will immediately recognize that our leaders love your children and are ready to creatively and dynamically engage them.
Spark & Ignite
Wednesday Nights, 6:00-7:30pm
1 Timothy 4:12 “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity."
Too often we underestimate the young – preschoolers and children – we limit what God could do in their lives because of their age. Well, that is not what we are about at Erlanger Baptist church. We are going to make the most of every opportunity to teach these children about Jesus through God’s Word.
SPARK - Our Wednesday night Preschool Ministry is for 2-5 year olds. Each night the preschoolers will have a large group time where a Bible passage will be taught through a puppet show and they will worship through age-appropriate songs. Then they will get in smaller groups to reinforce the Bible truth for the night in a variety of discovery centers involving games, crafts, and snacks. You can trust that your child will get much more than childcare on Wednesday nights. Spark meets starts in room 110
Matthew 3:11, “Jesus will ignite the kingdom life within you, a fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out.”
IGNITE - How should my relationship with Christ affect my daily life? How can God use me to tell others about Jesus in my community, city, nation, and world? Our goal on Wednesday nights is help children grow in their relationship with Jesus through studying the Bible, learning about missions, doing missions, and playing games. Ignite is divided into two exciting groups - K-4th graders meet in the Green Room (202) and 5th & 6th graders meet in Room 204.
We also offer childcare for babies - 2 year olds for those parents who are involved in L.I.F.E. Institute. Room 112.
