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.
NURSERY (pictured left)
Our Kingdom Kidz Ministry begins in our well-equipped, loving nursery environment where your child is welcomed by Melanie Mathews and her sweet staff of volunteers.
"Miss Melanie" has been with LBC and working in the Nursery for many years. She is a mother of five and a grandmother.
SUNDAY SCHOOL & AM WORSHIP
We have age appropriate Sunday School classes for preschool thru 5th grade each Sunday at 9:45 AM. Kids then join their parents for worship in the Sanctuary at 11:00. During the service, the Children's minister presents a Kids Message.
JUNIOR CHURCH (pictured right)
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.
Our Children’s Choir meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8 PM, throughout the school year. We invite children Kindergarten through Fifth Graders to participate in learning songs to sing during Worship services and when we visit the Quiet Oaks Nursing Home. Our Children’s Choir presents two musicals each year: a Christmas and Easter Musicals. Pictured left is the Children's Choir 2021 Christmas Musical presentation.
On Wednesday nights during the school year, Lexington Baptist Church children (Preschool through 5th grade) participate in M-28 Kids. M-28 Kids is a curriculum developed by our own Pastor Matt Bartlett! It is based on the Great Commission found in Matthew 28: 19. It teaches children truths from the Baptist Faith and Message through Bible related stories, scripture memory, mission outreach and games! Lexington Baptist Church prays that children who attend M-28 Kids will be formed into Kids who fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
