Children's Ministry

Vision for the World, A Home for Your Family

Our children’s ministry provides an atmosphere in which every child feels loved and valued. With our teachings always geared toward the child’s age and comprehension level, we lay the foundation for having a genuine relationship with Christ. We help the child grow in knowledge and understanding of that relationship through Bible training and simple practice of Christian principles.

Our children’s ministry serves boys and girls in grades one through six. Here are some of the programs and opportunities available to them.

Bible Study
There are multiple hours and Sunday School classes for children in grades one through six. The Sunday School organization serves as the foundation of the children’s ministry as it seeks to reach, teach, and help boys and girls know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.

Vacation Bible School

This is one of the biggest and most anticipated events of the year. For five days hundreds of children come together for Bible teaching, songs, crafts, recreation, new friendships, and plain, old-fashioned fun. This year there are two (2) VBS for the Baptist community to enjoy. The First Baptist Church of Bandera is home to a VBS the week of June 13-17.

Summer Camp

This year, the boys and girls will be camping at Gloreitta for the Ventrifuge Youth Camp. Children who have completed grades three through six can attend our overnight church camp. Good times, good friends, and wonderful moments of Bible study and worship are all a part of summer camp.

Bible Memory Program

We encourage Scripture memory in our Sunday School program. Children are recognized for their accomplishments with certificates and awards at the end of the year.
