Children Ministries

Pleasant Heights Baptist Church is a church that loves children and desires to see them come to know the Lord and learn to grow in His grace. Our children’s ministries include Sunday School classes where your children will be taught Bible stories and truths from the Word of God. They will be taught by experienced teachers that love the Lord.

We also have a class on Wednesday evenings during the Prayer Meeting service geared for children ages 4 through 12. Mrs. Terri teaches this class. She teaches truths from the Bible with activities to drive those truths home. Recently they have been studying the Fruits of the Spirit. It’s a great time for the kids to learn more about God and how to live for Him.

Last October we had a Fall Festival as an outreach to the folks in the neighborhood. We saw many boys and girls come. They had a good time, played lots of games, ate a hot dog and some cotton candy, and were shown that Pleasant Heights Baptist Church loves them and cares about them. We also had folks that shared the Gospel with those who came and seven people were saved. Praise the Lord! This years Fall Festival which was held on Saturday, October 29th. Again, it was a success. Over 80 people attended. Everyone had a great time. And nine children were saved as a result. Praise the Lord!

Our Juniors went to Junior Camp at Camp Victory in Somerset, Kentucky this summer. Camp ran from June 27th until July 2nd. It was a great time for the kids. So many activities to keep them busy, so many new friends to make, and so much to learn about the Lord. There was swimming (girls and boys separate),ball games, chariot races, and so much more. The music and preaching were godly and powerful. What more could you ask for? Oh, did I mention the Snacker Barrel? And one of our Junior girls surrendered to go to the mission field. How exciting is that?

Also in June was our annual Sunday School picnic. It was held on June 18th at Thompson Park. As usual everyone had a good time of fellowship and lots of food.

In July was our marvelous, stupendous, Vacation Bible School. July 25th through the 29th were the dates for that. Any and every kid over four years old was welcome. There was lots of fun, lots of singing, and lots of learning about the Lord. This year the theme was Rescue 911. We heard stories about Bible characters who were “rescued” like Daniel and Noah. We sang songs to Jesus and saw funny skits and played some great games. The kids also had a chance to earn points for things like bringing visitors, bringing their Bibles, and memorizing Scripture. There were lots and lots of cool prizes awarded for the kids who earned the most points. Everyone had a great time!

In September the kids had a Sprite and Paint where they painted a harvest pumpkin, instructed by Joyce Canada. They had a fantastic time.

Juniors (Grades 3-4)

Our Juniors are awesome. They just came back from Camp Victory in Somerset, Kentucky. There was fun,
