Preschool Community: Birth - Pre-K
The learning targets here are commensurate with the earliest developmental stages. Basic instruction regarding the love of God, simple Bible stories and the concept of church is expected.
Class configurations change due to the numbers of children in an age group at any given time. Generally, we offer nursery for infants, Preschool Toddler and Older Preschool classes. All classes are led by loving, well-trained teachers who follow our published policies on child protection. (Click here to read those policies.) Our preschool wing is located on the second floor off the main hallway behind the Sanctuary.
Elementary Community: First through Fifth Grade
The learning targets here focus on developing a working knowledge of the Bible and becoming conversant in the main biblical narrative. The need for and path of salvation is an annual focus in the oldest age group. As with our preschool, all classes are led by loving, well-trained teachers who follow our published polices on child protection. (Click here to read those policies.)
Our Children’s Wing is on the first floor of our education building on the 9th Street side.
Keeping Kids Safe
Child Protection Policy of Second Avenue Baptist Church
The Family of Faith at Second Avenue is committed to providing a safe place for families and their children. We consider our stewardship of God's children a sacred task and value the trust placed in us by our families. In light of this, the ministries of Second Avenue operate in accordance with a church-wide Child Protection Policy. Any member who works in an area of ministry that serves our children or students must be trained from our Child Protection Policy, adhere to its contents, provide references, and undergo a criminal background check.
The Childhood Ministries of Second Avenue Baptist Church seeks to partner with families in pointing children to Christ, helping them formulate their first steps and encounters with God, introducing the building blocks of faith formation and what it means to follow Jesus, and guiding them towards an understanding of their important role and place within their world and Family of Faith.
We offer a variety of programs including graded children's Sunday school classes, a midweek emphasis on missions through our Music & Missions programs, a summer Day Camp, Parents' Night Out, Kids' Day Out, etc. We are intentional towards making sure our children not only learn the vital role they play within the life of our Family of Faith, and also strive to model healthy adult examples where they can begin to discover what it means to grow towards a lifestyle of faith, worship, discipleship, and ministry.
