In Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, "Let the children come to me." At Merriman Road Baptist Church we take that commandment very seriously. We provide a welcoming, loving atmosphere and many different programs to encourage children to do just that; to come to Jesus. Please read on to see what we have to offer to children in grades 1-6.

What we're learning
Bible Study and Children’s Church: This week we are continuing in our series titled “The Kings” and Kids learned that God is the All Powerful, One True God and they will learn it by studying what happened when the Prophet, Elijah challenged the Prophets of Baal to a showdown on Mt. Carmel.
P.R.O.C.L.A.I.M.: The kids will be learning about puppetry and working on performing in front of the church.
G.A.s and R.A.s are modeling the programming of their year after Acts 1:8 and are in the “Judea” portion of their year, studying and doing mission projects for the metro Detroit area and Michigan.
TeamKID: TeamKID is Discipleship Training and we will be doing Discipleship 101 this winter and spring as we study the Sermon on the Mount.

Our Children's Programs
Not your traditional Sunday School. It’s fun! Using activities, crafts, music and more, kids explore the Bible from A-Z and everything in between! Children meet in small groups arranged according to grade. Bible Study is at 9:30 Sunday mornings.
Silly skits? Music just for kids? Fun Bible lessons? Games? Where can you find all that at church? In Children’s Church of course! Children’s Church is a worship service just for kids! We worship God and learn about His Word. Children’s Church meets at 11am Sunday mornings.
Kids learn a variety of performing arts, which they use to share the Gospel with the community. It is common for kids to perform plays and musicals.
Royal Ambassadors (boys only) & Girls in Action (girls only)
You care about people and you love helping out. You also love to learn about different countries and cultures. If this sounds like you, check out our mission groups: Royal Ambassadors and Girls in Action. In class, kids learn about missionaries and different places all over the world. Out of class, they learn to be missionaries by doing all kinds of mission projects. Both groups are split by grade level and meet on Wednesday nights from 6 to 6:55.
Love sports? Love being active? TeamKID is just for you! TeamKID keeps you on your toes; teaching kids the Bible while doing fast-paced, high-energy activities. TeamKID meets September through May, Wednesdays 7-8pm in the Gym.
Along with our classes, we have lots of fun activities scheduled each year. Everything from slumber parties, camps and carnivals to serving in various service projects throughout the community. There is truly something for every kid at Merriman Road Baptist Church!
