We love children at the Baptist Tabernacle!
Our goal is to plant God's Word and build a spiritual foundation in their tender hearts. Special ministries and activities help our children learn to love and follow God early in life. Loving teachers make the Bible alive for them and prepare them for the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Each Sunday morning before the worship service,
children have the opportunity to sing songs and learn truths from the Bible from loving, caring teachers. Some of the younger classes also enjoy a craft that reminds them of the Bible story they have learned. If your child needs transportation, please contact the church office for info on our bus route. For classroom locations, you may ask a greeter who welcomes people at the front doors.
During the Sunday morning worship service, children up through 3rd grade may attend a service that is designed for their age level with other children their age. The Sunday School teachers will take their students to the appropriate location. During the evening services on Sunday and Wednesday, the children's church services are available for children ages 2-4. Of course, children are also
welcome in the main service.
This program includes games, Scripture memory, and a Bible story! We meet on Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:45 to 8:00. We do not meet on days that Collinsville Public Schools
do not meet. The children are divided into classes by age: Puggles (2 years old), Cubbies (ages 3-4), Sparkies (Kindergarten through 2nd grade), and Truth & Training (3rd through 6th grades). Awards are available at the end of the year based on work that has been accomplished throughout the year. Children should check-in through the north door on the west side of the building. If your child needs transportation, please contact the church office.
Bread & Water Café
During the summer, children going into grades 1 through 6 can be a part of the Bread and Water Café. In this program we have a lesson time, snack time, and a Bible Sword Drill time. There is a special championship Bible Sword Drill at the end of the Summer. This is to encourage the children to know their Bibles well enough to find verses quickly. Bread and Water meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 until AWANA begins in the fall. If your child needs transportation, please contact the church office.
Each summer, we take a group of juniors to camp for a week at
Lake Texoma Baptist Youth Camp near Pottsboro, TX. Children who are going into 4th through 6th grade are encouraged to come. Children who are going into 7th grade are encouraged to go to Teen Camp as they prepare to enter the youth group.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer, the church hosts a week of Vacation Bible School. This is an action-packed, fun-filled week! Funny skits, exciting games and activities, creative crafts, and a daily Bible lesson all add to the memories children make during this week. Your children won't want to miss this week that is often the highlight of the summer! Our 2017 VBS will take place on the mornings from June 5th to June 9th concluding with a Family fellowship that Friday night the 9th.
