Kid Konnection & YouthGet to know our Children's Ministry and Student Ministry
During both of our Sunday services, we offer an age-appropriate environment for kids from infant – 5th grade to learn, play, and worship together. There are 4 main age groups we divide children into: Nursery, Toddlers, Preschool, and Kindergarten – 5th Grade.
During these times, children will learn a Bible lesson, worship together, play games, make crafts, and share a snack.
On the fifth Sunday of the month, our K-5th grade children stay in the adult worship services.
For our middle school and high school age students, we offer two opportunities for them to learn together: Sunday Bible Life Groups and Xcellar8.
Sunday Bible Life Groups
These group times are focused on helping kids who are followers of Jesus to go deeper in their relationship with Him. Groups are typically age specific and seek to be biblically relevant and practical. We try to encourage community, openness and accountability through our Bible Life Groups. We have Sunday morning groups that meet during 1st Service and Sunday evening groups that meet every other Sunday evening from 6:00-7:30pm.
This is an after school program that meets on Mondays from 5-8 PM during the school year. Xcellar8 is designed as an on outreach program reaching young people who are new to church. It is a fun, fast paced, and crazy program.
We have free time where kids can play video games and other forms of entertainment such as air hockey, ping pong, foosball and other fun inside games. During these times we also provide an area for kids to do their homework. When the weather is nice we can go outside and play outside games. We also have some structured times where we provide a “sit down” dinner as well as worship and instructional times focused on Jesus. We also try to provide an occasional elective such as guitar classes. At any time during the program kids can go to our prayer room and receive prayer support from our dedicated prayer warriors.
At BCC, the safety of children is incredibly important. Consequently, we have several safe guards in place to protect your children and our staff. Our Children’s ministry teachers and helpers are given background checks before being allowed to work with the children. Both teachers and helpers are easily spotted on Sunday mornings, by their colorful name tags.
We have a sign-in station in the lower level hallway, to ensure that your children will be dropped off at the proper location and picked up by a parent/guardian. (This also enables our staff to know where the children are located at all times.) Emergency exits are clearly marked and alarmed for safety. In addition to all this, we have several video cameras throughout the Kid Konnection area that are monitored at all times during Sunday services. We take very seriously the responsibility we have to provide a safe and loving atmosphere for your children as they grow one step closer to Jesus!
