Swift Creek Kids exists to bring children into a relationship with God though Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, to instill Biblical disciplines of memorizing Scripture and studying God’s Word, and to create a passion for sharing God’s love with others.
The mission of Swift Creek Kids is to connect children to God through Biblical teaching, to connect children to others through Christ-centered programs and to connect others to God through family friendly activities.
Before children graduate out of our Children’s Ministry, they will learn:
- Scripture is the inspired Word of God
- God is Creator and Ruler of all things
- Man was created to have a relationship with God
- Man has chosen to rebel against God (sin) which has caused separation from God and the need for a Savior
- God has provided for our need by sending Jesus Christ to die for our sins
- We must choose to accept the gift of forgiveness of sins from Jesus Christ which will restore our relationship with God
SUNDAY MORNING Connect Groups
Children’s Connect Groups, meeting at 9:30 am on Sundays, for 1st through 5th grades, provides a loving, nurturing, age-appropriate environment that lays the biblical foundation for faith in Christ and Godly living. Our teachers utilize teaching methods that address the many different learning styles of children in order to maximize their learning and enjoyment. Each grade level department consists of a TEAM of teachers working together to best serve your children. Children grow in their faith through Bible Knowledge, Prayer, Memory verses and developing the habit of doing daily devotions (a time with God). Building healthy relationships with their peers and family is emphasized as well. The 1st through 5th grade children may worship with their parents at 11am or they may participate in Children’s Church.

KIDZ CONNECT CLASS
At Swift Creek Baptist Church we strive to lay a good foundation for those children who are “new babes” in Christ. Each quarter a new believer’s Classes are offered for K-3rd, and 4th-6th grade. In the class the children review what it means to trust Christ as their Savior and learn that how they can have assurance of salvation. The basic tenets of our faith such as baptism, the Lord’s Supper and “The Church” are taught and thoroughly explained.
These classes are strongly recommended for children prior to baptism, but are not a requirement. Classes are purposely kept small so that there’s time for individual attention and questions. Parents should call the Children’s Ministry office to register a child for this class. Discipleship is an imperative command from our Lord–not just for adults but for our children as well. And let’s anchor our children in the Word that they may be “like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. What ever he does prospers.” Psalm 1:3
AWANA Clubs Provide an active program for boys and girls on Wednesday nights during the school year from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The children enjoy a great evening of Bible learning, Scripture memory, and recreation. Children earn awards during their achievement time and wear them on their Awana shirts or vests.
The Kingdom Kids and Little Praisers Choirs are places for all children to discover and use their creative gifts in the many and varied programs of our music ministry. The boys and girls will meet on Wednesday nights during the school year at 5:45pm. Kingdom Kids (grades 2-5) meet in the Music Suite. Little Praisers (K-1st grade) meet in 205.
