Our goal is to establish a safe, loving and consistent environment for children to experience the presence of God.

Nursery (Birth to 35 months)

The nursery exists to provide a safe and nurturing place for children while their parents/care providers are attending services. Babies from birth through 35 months are nurtured by loving volunteers in an environment where Christian compassion and servanthood are demonstrated and taught.

Preschool (Ages 3-5)

This fun and exciting ministry encourages children to participate in times of worship, biblical teaching, prayer and games. Our volunteers are committed to providing a stable foundation for children to experience the presence of the Lord in their own understanding. Our desire is to see young children seeking and knowing God!

Elementary (Ages 6-11)

During each service, children are given the opportunity to explore God’s word through various activities. Biblical principles are established through worship, teachings, prayer, games and fellowship with others. Our desire is to lead children into a personal relationship with Jesus and to show them their value in service to His kingdom.

Kids Night Out (Ages 6-11)

Kids Night Out is a program centered on music and drama. Our goal is to help children learn Biblical truths  through drama, music, dance, teachings and discussion. Children are encouraged to use their talents for the Lord and recognize the great calling on their lives. Our staff and volunteers are spiritually motivated to teach your children about Jesus Christ in an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. All children ages 6-11 are encouraged to join us on Sunday evenings at 6:00 pm.

Children & Missions

Buddy Barrel is the mascot for BGMC. When BGMC started in 1949, supplies were shipped to the missionaries in barrels. Barrels were used because they could be sealed tight and made waterproof. This way the supplies would not get wet or ruined. As a result, Buddy Barrel was created. Small wooden barrels were also designed for the children to save their coins in. These barrels have now changed to larger yellow plastic barrels. Children are encouraged to save their money in these barrels and turn their money in once a month.

Wednesday Nights

National Girls Ministries and Royal Rangers meet on Wednesday evenings at 7:00.
