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 and Junior Church 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. It’s a great time for the kids to learn more about God and how to live for Him.

In October of 2015 we had our first annual 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 other treats, 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! Our second annual Fall Festival, which was held on Saturday, October 29th, 2016, was another success. Over 80 people attended. Everyone had a great time. And nine children were saved as a result. Praise the Lord! October 28th, 2017 we were excited to be able to have our Fall Festival for the third year, and again the Lord blessed. We had more volunteers than ever, new games built to be played, people saved and families becoming faithful to church as a result. It rained all day and we had to move everything inside at the last minute, but God blessed us with even more people in attendance than we’ve had before. The spirit of our church family was awesome, despite the last minute chaos, and all that attended had a wonderful time.

In June 2017 our Juniors went to Camp Faith in West Virginia .  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, and so much more. The music and preaching were godly and powerful. What more could you ask for? The kids are already looking forward to camp this year.

Also in June was our annual Sunday School picnic. As usual everyone had a good time of fellowship and lots of food.

In July was our marvelous, stupendous, Vacation Bible School.  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’s theme was The Armor of God. Walter the Warrior visited us every night and entertained us with his antics while teaching us about the importance of wearing the full armor of God. 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!

Children are such an important part of the ministry here at Pleasant Heights. We love them and want to encourage them to love and serve the Lord early in life. We encourage them to get involved in a ministry even as children. We have young men that serve as Junior Ushers, and children that are a part of our music ministry. You are never too young (or old) to serve the Lord.


Juniors (Grades 3-4)

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