Parents Helping Parents to Raise Godly Children.
The motto of the Children’s Ministry of Decatur Baptist Church is “Parents helping Parents to raise Godly Children”. In today’s world, it takes a whole community to raise children right. The Children’s Ministry strives to play our part by strengthening the family unit by providing biblical training for the children while training and engaging the parents.
First Time Visitors
When you enter through the Children’s building entrance, you will be greeted by some of our amazing children’s ministry workers! You will then fill out a form for your little(s). This form only needs to be filled out at the first visit.
Get Badge & Drop Child Off in Classroom
Once you fill out your child’s form, you will be given a badge that matches to a sticker we will place on your child’s back. Someone from our children’s ministry team will then show you what classroom(s) your child will be in.
Pick Up After the Service Ends
When the worship service ends, you can pick up your child in the same classroom you dropped him or her off in! You will then turn in your badge & you are good to go. We hope to see you and your family again!
