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. Children and their families are always welcome at Merriman Road Baptist Church. Please read on to see what we have to offer children in grades 1-6.
Our Mission Statement
The Children’s Ministries of Merriman Road Baptist Church exist for the purposes of teaching Biblical values, sharing God’s love and showing children how they can have a personal faith in Jesus Christ and live and grow as one of His disciples.
Our Current Situation:

Summer notes: In the summer we have special programming on Wednesday night for children. Also, children worship with their families on Sunday evenings in the summer. We do not have separate programming for them at that time.
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.
Children's Christmas Musical
The Children will be performing a musical at Christmastime and will be rehearsing throughout the fall on Sunday nights at 6pm.
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!
