What We're About Kids

banner_children

The Children’s Ministry team at Spring Valley Baptist Church loves children! We consider it a privilege from God to share Biblical instruction and love with your child. We view ourselves as partners with you and want to do anything we can to make this stage of your family’s life enjoyable and rewarding.

As a parent, you make the most significant impact on your child. Talking about God and His goodness teaches your child about the nature of God. Telling your child about your own personal commitment to Christ and your convictions about His Word shows your child the importance of an individual commitment. Regular Bible study, prayer, and church attendance helps demonstrate the priority of God in your life.

These are critical years as you lay the foundation for your child’s future. We want to help you learn how Christian parents raise their children in the ways of Jesus Christ.

It is our prayer that, like Jesus, your child will grow in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.
We anticipate great years ahead!

In Christ,
Allyson Kelly
Children’s Ministry Director
