Children’s Ministry

"Children are not the church of tomorrow; they are the church of today!"



George Barna said “In the race to a child’s heart, the first one there wins.” 

Locust Grove Baptist Church partners with parents and families in the effort for Jesus to become your child’s first love.  

We use all methods available for children to learn to be in a bold, missional and inclusive community.

Life Groups for all ages- 9:15 AM Sunday
Children’s Church (4-6)- 10:30 AM service Sunday
Wednesday Fellowship- 6:00 PM (Snacks) and 6:30 PM Class

We are excited to meet new friends!  We would be pleased to have your children and your family visit with Locust Grove.  Your child(ren) would be greeted and treated as one of our own.  It would not take long for your child(ren) to form lasting relationships.

Our Life Groups for children meet in two locations- the rear of the church at the Daycare Center hosts our Life Groups from ages birth- 5 years old.  The basement located adjacent to the Rock Chapel houses our Elementary Life Group.  From the Fellowship Hall, it is up the stairs and on the right.

During the 10:30 service time, we offer Children’s Church to ages 4-6 in the basement.  Children these ages will be dismissed following the song service and offering time.  Typically the Deacon of the Week will include this dismissal.

Wednesday evening snacks are offered in the Fellowship Hall.  The class locations for children are the same as Life Group (above).

Sign- in & Sign- out forms at the desk above the basement and in the Pre-school area

Pre-school form indicating any allergies, feeding instructions, etc.

For Pre-school children, register for a beeper in the office in the Daycare area at drop off.  Please also return your beeper/pager after church.

The basement door will remain locked until class begins.  For Elementary age children, please bring a Bible to both Life Group and Wednesday evening classes.  We do ask that no outside toys or distractions be brought into class time, please.

We try to incorporate active play, bible memory verses, crafts, group activities and also the latest curriculum to teach and guide.

Lanyard badges provided for class teachers, nursery workers, volunteers and directors

We would love to have you assist with your gift(s) that God has given!  We have found that for all of what is given, it is returned two-fold in the joy that these kiddos give back.  The opportunities are as follows:
