Here at Southwestern Baptist, children and families are very important to us! We believe our role in your child’s life is a partnership with families exemplifying what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. We strive to provide a safe and fun environment for our children to grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus!

Elementary Classes for children 1st-6th grade
Your church has several entrances. Where is the best access for the Kid’s Ministry?
The best entrance for visitors with children is located under the burgundy awning (to the right of the church). Directly through this door is the Kid's Ministry Welcome Center. Hosts will gladly direct you to the Children’s areas.
When can I check my child in?
We ask our teachers to be in their classrooms at least 15 minutes before a program begins (either on Sunday or Wednesday). If your child arrives before the classroom teacher, we ask that one parent remain with the child until one of our ministry partners arrives.
How old does my child have to be to participate in Children’s Ministry?
We offer classes for all kids – babies through the 6th grade. If your child is preschool age or younger, they will go to the Preschool area, to the left of the Kid's Ministry Welcome area. If your child is grade K-5, they will go to the Elementary area, to the right of the Kid's Ministry Welcome area.
How do I know my child is safe?
Child safety is taken very seriously at SWBC. All volunteers in the Children’s ministry go through background checks. We also require that parents sign-out their child in their classrooms at pick-up. Also, all outside doors near the Children's Wing will be locked after the service has begun.
