Welcome to Piney Level Baptist Church Children's Ministries webpage. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in the spiritual development of your child. We are excited to minister to, and with, you and your child.
The purpose of Children's Ministry is to help children and their families grow in their relationship with the Lord Jesus. Each child from the nursery through 6th grade needs a safe, caring and loving environment so that they can begin to learn and understand spiritual truths. In Psalm 127:3 God reminds us that our children are a gift from Him. We as a church take this God-given trust seriously. Children's Ministry provides a comprehensive ministry to our children and their families. Our prayer and desire is that each child who attends Piney Level will come to a place in their life where they will accept Christ as Savior and Lord and continue to grow in their walk with God.
Children's Sunday School is a blast! Your child will join others as they learn more about God through age-relevant Bible Study, scripture memorization, games and other fun activities! There are many age-specific groups available, all staffed by caring leaders.
Wednesday night classes are mission focused. Children have the opportunity to go deeper into God's word as they become disciples for Christ. We offer several different classes for your child to learn and grow in their knowledge of missions.
