Discovering God's dream...

for the world.

For our neighbors.

For you.

The Children’s Ministry of Myers Park Baptist Church is a welcoming and affirming place for all children from birth through those who have completed fifth grade. Through a variety of methods and experiences, we help children discover their part in making God’s dream for the world come true by showing love, justice, and mercy to all the world. Our goal is to walk with children and their families through the stages of childhood, creating community for all. And we hope you will join us on the journey!

As a child, I did not know just how different our church was until I grew up and experienced other churches.



Birth through Kindergarten

On Sundays, we provide nursery childcare for children from birth through kindergarten. During this time, your mind can be at ease because skilled staff and compassionate volunteers, all of whom are background checked, care for your children. 

Nursery | 8 weeks old until walking | Nursery  

This room is a child’s introduction to church. Here they will be cared for by trained workers who give the very best care. Families are asked to bring all necessary items to the nursery (diapers, bottles, etc). The room offers a split space, one for playing and interacting; one for sleeping and nursing mothers.  Once a child is walking they are transitioned out of this room.  

Toddlers and Twos | Walking until Third Birthday | Room 105 

Children in this room are introduced to the basic Bible stories while being in the care of trained childcare providers. With a classroom and playground designed just for this age group, children are invited to explore and learn in a safe loving environment. Families are asked to send snacks for their children in this class. 

Threes | Room 107 

This is the age when we begin doing full Christian Education. Teaching through a stories, play, and art children are taught the stories of the Christian faith in a way that is age appropriate. The classroom and playground and geared towards engaging the child’s entire being. 

Fours – Kindergarten | Room 108 

Designed for children who are preparing or already in Kindergarten this class teaches children the stories of the Christian faith as well as helping them understand the characteristics of a follower of Christ. 

First through Fifth Graders

We invite children in first through fifth grade to worship with the larger congregation each Sunday because we believe their presence reflects the presence of God. Children will come to the Sanctuary for worship & sit with their families. They will leave with with leaders before the sermon & return at the final hymn for pick up. During this time, they will engage their minds, hearts, & bodies in an experience that is designed just for them.

Our life impacts our faith, and our faith impacts our life. We want to make sure that our children are engaging their faith as individuals and together. 

Children's spiritual growth classes are divided up by age to ensure that children are taught in an age-appropriate way. Children engage with a different Bible story or concept each week while they deepen their relationships with one another and God. Children are encouraged to ask questions and dig into their faith, making it their own. Parents are encouraged to stop by the Parent Connection Station at the top of the stairs to get a copy of “Who Is My Child’s Leader.”

First & Second Grades: Room 209
Third & Fourth Grades: Room 211
Fifth Grade: Room 208



Each October we have our annual Halloween Festival. Children are invited to dress in costume and trick or treat around the inside of the Church. Games and other activities are also a part of this church-wide evening. 

The weekend before Easter, we will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt on the bunny trail around our campus. It’s a fun event for children and adults! 



Throughout the year, the Children's Ministry offers socials for parents and families. Our goal is for kids and their parents to have community in a way that few other spaces offer. 

We have four socials a year: two for the whole family and two just for adults. Be on the lookout for more information!
