Children's Ministry

Olympians (Grades 1-6)  

Gopher Buddies (Age 4-K)

Tuesdays   6:30 pm

BCC's children’s ministry program, also called Olympians is built around a profound theme found in the Bible; the Christian life as a race. Paul uses this illustration throughout Scripture telling his disciple Timothy to finish well in his walk with God. Our children’s ministry curriculum is built around helping children start the race well. To engage children, the program is built around an Olympic theme and children get bronze, silver, and gold stickers as they memorize verses, do ministry, and spend time in God’s Word each day.

Each year Olympians accomplish these things...

  • Learn to have a consistent time in God’s Word each week with help from a small group leader.
  • Study God’s Word in 48 lessons from our Word of Life children’s ministry curriculum.
  • Memorize verses tailored to their age and developmental ability.
  • Participate in church and community through Christian service projects.
  • Earn fun incentives and awards to celebrate milestones of achievement built around the Olympic theme.

BCC’s Gopher Buddies program is designed to help young children start to lay a foundation for the habit of spiritual growth. We know that at a young age children are just starting to the understand the truth of the Gospel and of Jesus. Therefore, our early learner program is built around helping children learn God’s Word, fundamental truths of the Gospel and who God is. We teach life lessons that even a 4 year old can apply.

Each year Gopher Buddies accomplish these things...

  • Learn to have a consistent time in God’s Word with the help of a parent or adult.
  • Learn from God’s Word with creativity and clarity (and sometimes puppets!)
  • Memorize 10 verses based around the curriculum and Bible lessons each week.
  • Participate in church and community through Christian service projects.
  • Earn fun incentives like stickers, patches, stamps and certificates.Le
