At Bakerville, we allow them to ask questions, participate in morning worship, and just to play – like God’s Children. Each Sunday, children are asked to come up front for a message given just for them! Following the Children’s Message those 6 and under are invited downstairs to the children’s space where screened caregivers will provide a loving, nurturing, and safe environment including play, songs, crafts, and Bible stories.
At this time, we can not offer Nursery or children’s classes until further notice, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We ask that children remain in worship with their parents and we have provided activity kits for them. And as always, we invite children to fully participate in worship in song, dance, scripture and more!
We do offer an online meeting time for children on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm (just before the adult fellowship time) and our screened child’s leaders lead the children in age appropriate Bible Stories and activities as well as just visiting.
BUMC is also home to the Bakerville Community Nursery School (BCNS), a ministry that cares for the young and growing. BCNS provides a warm, caring environment, embracing individuality. Children learn through play focusing on all developmental domains. Kindergarten readiness is a goal, including an extended day once a week.
BCNS believes a quality learning environment:
• Provides challenging programs
• Respects individuality
• Inspires life long learning
• Promotes innovation
• Promotes positive social interaction
• Promotes high social values
