In Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." At Lexington Baptist Church, we take these words seriously. We work hard to provide a safe, nurturing and fun environment for kids to come to know Jesus now and continue to grow to serve Him. Jesus recognized the importance of childhood, and not just the future of each child. He knew the importance and value of the state of being a child. We desire to partner with parents in training children of all ages to have a real knowledge of God.

SUNDAY SCHOOL & AM WORSHIP

Preschoolers - 3rd grade are dismissed from morning worship after the Children's message to attend Junior Church, for Bible lessons, songs, games, snacks, memory verses and crafts. On the third Sunday of each month, all children remain in the Sanctuary to worship with their families.

CIA runs from 6:00 - 7:30 PM. each Wednesday evening.
Kids are grouped by age and grade for Bible study, games, snacks, and mission adventures. Kids can earn a special bag to display badges earned through mission activities, as well as points for reciting memory verses, having good behavior, and attending club. The points are used to purchase items from a “store” set up at various times during the club year.
