Because we believe that God has called parents to be the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children, our hope is to partner with parents in their pursuit of this mission, coming alongside them in the discipleship process.
During our main Sunday Morning Worship Gathering we offer safe, structured classes for children ages 8 weeks through 4th grade.
There are many options for you when to bring your children to Bayless Kids (located in the upstairs hallway next to the sanctuary).
You can check-in your child(ren) before the service, starting 15 minutes before the service. If you prefer, you may also drop them off at this time with our Serve Team
You can check-in your child(ren) after the greeting time when they are dismissed. If you do, you will need to do so down the hall outside the sanctuary in the Bayless Kids area.
All parents are always welcome to keep children of any age with them during the entire service!
Trained volunteers navigate children through intentional curriculum to help children engage with the Bible in a way that makes sense to them. The curriculum we use is called the Gospel Project which shows how Jesus is the hero in every Bible story.
PARENTS WITH INFANTS
You are absolutely welcome to keep your baby with you during service. Whoever is preaching will not give you evil glares if your baby squirms and squeaks during the height of his sermon. There is also a nursing/cry room set aside for moms located at the rear right of the sanctuary. Your baby is also welcome at Bayless Kids whenever you feel comfortable.
Bayless Kids Serve Team
Bayless Baptist Church exists to make disciples of Jesus for the glory of God and the joy of all people. One of the most important places we make disciples is within the next generation—our kids.

All of our children's programs are created with these goals:
Have fun! We want children to enjoy coming to church. So we put a lot of energy into preparing interesting, creative environments for them.
Experience God’s Love. Children begin forming impressions of God at an early age, and we believe their experience at church is an important part of that. We want them to know God as their loving Creator. So we choose biblically sound curriculum, crafts, and music that reflect his love.
Serve parents. We know it’s easier to worship and learn when you know your kids are well cared-for. Therefore, we are especially conscious about creating a safe, secure environment.
