We Want Kids to Love Jesus
In every part of the Ben Davis Christian Church NextGen Ministries, we have the privilege of caring for and investing in the lives of children and students at every stage of their personal and spiritual development. Our goal? Teach our little ones about the love of Jesus.
At Ben Davis, our Kids Ministry is driven by the truth that “children are a gift from the Lord” (Psalm 127:3)—and we are passionate about creating a safe, fun environment where they can have a closer friendship with Jesus and each other.
Every part of our Kids Ministry features a kid-friendly, age-appropriate environment, and is staffed by a fully-trained and passionate volunteer team who love to share Jesus with our tiniest members. Each of our volunteers goes through a background check, and is trained to ensure a safe and protective experience for all children.
How it Happens
Our Sunday morning programming for kids is offered at both services and are divided by age—nursery, preschool, and elementary. Each stage and phase of our Kids Ministry features a time of worship, prayer and interactive lesson that is uniquely designed to engage the hearts and minds of children and teach them biblical truth.
At Ben Davis Christian Church, we believe that a safe environment encourages a sense of love and compassion, so we perform full background checks on every member of our ministry team before they serve on our Kids Ministry teams.
Every lesson is centered on the three basic truths:
Trust God no matter what.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Make the wise choice.
Getting Ready For Your First Visit
Whether you’re checking Ben Davis Christian Church out for the very first time or you’re just visiting family for the weekend—we’d love to roll out the red carpet and treat you to a VIP experience. We want your first visit to be fun, easy, and—most importantly—safe. That’s why we ask every guest for some basic information. By signing-up in advance, you can skip the line and check-in without the hassle of filling out forms. Fun. Easy. Safe.
We want you and your children’s experience to be smooth and enjoyable. In order to help us serve families, we encourage parents and guardians to label all personal items with the child’s first and last name before arriving at church.
Our Kid’s Ministry spaces are clearly marked with signage across our campus. If you are dropping off your child before the worship service begins, plan ahead to give yourself a few extra minutes to check-in using our computerized system.
The fun begins the moment you arrive! When your family enters our Kids Ministry area, you’ll be greeted by a friendly volunteer who will help you check-in. Every child will receive a nametag and well as a parent pick-up card that will be used for checkout.
Should a parent be needed at any time during the service, the coordinating number on your parent pick-up tag will appear on the screens in the worship center and lobby. Simply head to the Kids Ministry area and a team member will help you!
Once the worship service wraps up, you can pick up your child at the Kids Ministry location where you dropped him or her off. Upon pick up, a helpful team member will request your coordinating parent tag, and once identities have been verified, your child will be released to you. Our parent pick up tag system prevents unapproved pickups from occurring.
