Children's Ministry

 
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord.Psalm 127:3
At Bible Baptist Church we believe this! Every effort is made to reach and train children while they are at a young and tender age. They learn in Bible Fellowship, children’s church, and Wednesday night Word of Life programs, Gopher Buddies and Olympians! They also have the chance to serve in the church through Kingdom Kids Choir!
