Nurturing our Children
At Temple Baptist Church, our desire is to partner with parents to build a gospel-centered spiritual formation for their children’s lives. Focusing weekly lessons on foundational Biblical truths, we teach from the Scriptures and help parents proclaim to the next generation who God is and what He has done.
Nursery is provided for infants through 4 years old for every Sunday church service & Sunday School and Wednesday night prayer meeting. The Nursery is located in our South Education Building. Our nursery staff and volunteers care for and teach your little ones about the Lord through song, dance, and story. Each service your child will be put into their age-appropriate room, enjoy fun, fellowship, and receive a small snack while they hear teaching from Scripture. Our Nursery Director is Melissa Parks, get to know her here.
If you are visiting for the first time, you will need to fill out a registration card. If we need you for any reason during the service, we will text you. During the church services, the doors to the South Building will be locked and monitored by one of our EYE team. If you need to pick up your children early from the service, they can assist you.
We require all of our volunteers to be trained in safety procedures and background checks are performed before helping in any part of our children’s ministry. We also maintain a strict teacher-to-child ratio to ensure safe care. For health standards, children must be free from fever or symptoms of contagious disease for 24 hours. Please let us know if your child has any allergies or medical conditions.
- Special Needs:
If you have a child with special needs, we would love to partner with you in ministering to your child. Please contact our church office for more information.
- Family Resources:
Each Sunday, your child will take home a sheet that corresponds with the lesson that they learned. This sheet will help you review the Bible story with your child and help them to apply the lessons they have learned at home.
Sunday Morning Bible Study
Each Sunday morning from 9:45 am – 10:45 am
We have dedicated Bible Study teachers that will teach your child the Word of God faithfully every week. Bible Study classrooms are found in our South Building in our Nursery as well as upstairs in the Foundation room. The classrooms for Kindergarten – 5th grade are found upstairs.
Foundation Morning Worship (Sunday) is a fun & exciting worship experience for children 5 years old through 3rd grade. We offer Foundation every Sunday morning. The children will be brought to you from Sunday Bible Study. They will worship with you during the music service and be dismissed at a certain time. The children and teacher will be assisted by our EYE team back across the street. Your child will be taught the truth of Scripture, and there is an emphasis on learning to connect to God’s Word in a fun, relevant way! You can pick your child up in the South building after the service.
Foundation is also available on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30 pm for all children ages Kindergarten through 5th grade. Foundation offers a great experience for your child, helping them to learn to know God through great music, scripture memorization, Bible study, fun games, and skills.
