About This Ministry

Children’s church ministry is geared to allow children to take an active roll in lifting up the name of Jesus. Through praise, devotion, prayer, the WORD and benediction children lead and take charge of service. Children are taught the word of God as it is written in the Holy Bible. The word of God is brought and taught in a classroom setting by an ordained minister of St. Matthews Baptist Church followed by an age appropriate lesson, question and answer session, craft session and/or game session. Children church activities are divided into increments of 20 minute sessions. After children are served the main course (The word of God) children take a break to have a snack and more fun.

Children live in the “NOW” they desire to concentrate on what’s happening in the present and how it pertains to them. So here at St. Matthews we keep “JESUS ALIVE” and real. We explore how Jesus is the same yesterday, today and evermore. We strive to make learning fun, exciting, rewarding and “very present.”- Hebrews 13:8
