Kids Ministry at Barnhardt Baptist Church

Kidz Zone

Every Sunday during the main service we have an excellent program for all kids age 3 through 5th grade. All children for this age do not go to service, they just go straight to their class upstairs. We have been using The Gospel Project which has been a great blessing!


Wednesday evenings we offer a program that emphasizes missions and Bible teaching for all kids age 3 through 6th grade. We are dedicating the Wednesday night children's hour to studying our active oversees missionaries and the countries they serve! Each country will be the focus of our study for an entire month. During that time we will be delving into study of the culture, climate, food, religions, and obstacles missionaries face in each of the countries. It is our desire that through this study, the Lord might open up the hearts of our young people towards missions, and that they might find their place in the Great Commission.


This week's theme night reminder! We like to have fun and get messy. Sunday we will have MESSY GAME NIGHT! Wear clothes you don't mind getting messy in, and if you'd prefer, bring a change of clothes. This is always one of the kids' favorite nights!

AWANA has begun! Join us on SUNDAYS from 6PM to 7:30PM!!

The Awana youth clubs are a dynamic program for children age 2 through the 6th grade during the school year. (Sept to May). Awana is an exciting and highly motivating program whose goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ. The word Awana is made from the initials "Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed" as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. Handbook time, Council time, Game time, Special events, Puppets and Outings are but a few of the activities that describe our Awana program. We would like you to consider bringing your child to our Awana program here at Barnhardt Baptist Church!

Youth Ministry

CALLING ALL TEENS! 7th - 12th grade. We meet every Wednesday in our youth room at 7pm. We worship, pray, and learn what God's Word has in store for us. We have lesson time and then game time. Oh, and the teens favorite part, snacks at the end of the night. We use the Word of Life program to help us learn how to navigate the scriptures and build great habits to set us up for the best kind of walk with our Lord. Youth group is led by our youth pastor, Pastor Caleb Lythgoe and his wife Amber.
