Battleground Kids Ministry has a format where all kids from birth through fifth grade are welcome so that they can hear the gospel and learn from the Word of God on their own level. We understand that every kid is different and that they learn and mature at their own pace. We provide an avenue where we partner with the parent/guardian so that every kid can learn and grow in the Word of God, right where they are at personally.
Where all three of our classes have "rough age ranges," we don't believe that the age of the child matters as much as their overall ability to grasp the Word of God and their maturity level. Therefore, we have removed the traditional "age specific" title of our classrooms and have replaced them with "color" specific titles. If a child isn’t ready to be moved up to the next class, he/she can remain in their current classroom with no shame and will then be moved up at their own pace when they begin to mature and when the parent believes they are ready to be moved up.
Green Class (Babies - 2 Years Old)
Battleground Community Kids offers age specific childcare for babies through 2 years old during the 11:00am worship service on Sunday Mornings. You can be confident that your child is well taken care of while you worship God and learn from His Word. All leaders in Battleground Community Kids are background-checked and trained to provide a safe environment for your kids.
Yellow Class (3 Years Old - Kindergarten)
Our yellow class is a beginner level class where the child will experience a Bible story for younger kids, a snack, music, games, and other activities where they will learn the foundational truths of the faith using the Gospel Project curriculum. This class is not as structured, but provides an entry level platform for the child to begin learning how to sit in a group and to listen to the teacher.
Red Class (1st Grade - 5th Grade)
Our red class is a more advanced class where the child will experience a large group worship element, small group activities, crafts, a Bible story for older kids, and a large group component where they will learn the truths about God's love, His redemptive plan of salvation, and discover how they fit into God's master plan using the Gospel Project curriculum. This class is more structured and is a good bridge that will allow the child to begin to develop good listening, study, verbal, and worship habits as they prepare to transition to Student Ministry and attend normal worship services in 6th grade.
Our Kids Ministry uses the Gospel Project curriculum. The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered Bible study resource that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events—presenting the story of redemption through Jesus like kids have never seen it before! Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more. You can learn more about the Gospel Project at the link below.
