Our Philosophy

Find out what guides our ministry for children and teens.

We want to see your child come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior as well as grow in their love for Him. We are intentially focused on investing in your child just like you are.

Our Focus

Our philosophy for children and teen ministries has mulitple facets. Each of these items is intentially focused on helping your children and teens be followers of Christ.

"Children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies in the gate."
Psalm 127:3-5

Our philosophy is to come alongside of parents to help them in the training of their children and teens, not to take over their parenting responsibilities.

Sunday Morning Ministries

We have a graded Sunday School program that begins in the Nursery (not just a babysitting service, but an actual age-appropriate lesson). This goes all the way up through high school with specialized classes, loving teachers, and activities designed for each group. Our children are encouraged to participate in 5-Day Bible Camp, camping programs at Wolf Mountain, and a Summer Tutorial Ministry. We have Christmas parties and other activities for the children throughout the year.

During our regular Sunday Morning Worship Service, children are trained in Beginner Church and Junior Church in every area of worship and instruction. Children and teens participate in our church services as well, providing special music from time to time, and attending church services as a group as a part of their training. Teens are encouraged to join our church choir and assist in various children's classes. Teen boys and some pre-teens serve as ushers during our church services.

The protection of your children and teens is a high priority at Hamilton Square Baptist Church.  All of our church leaders and youth workers are required to undergo training with Ministry Safe.
