Children’s Ministry

Sunday School

Time: 10:00am -10:45am

Sunday School Classes for all ages of youth, preschool to high school, located in the Ballew Building (located directly behind the sanctuary).

The goal at Piney Grove Baptist Church is for every child to feel special, unique and loved. Our qualified and dedicated teachers lead by example. By showing God’s love to each child, teachers help children to experience the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our desire is to lead children to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ at an early age, then to disciple them to follow Him and grow in their Christian Faith.

Kids’ Church

Time: 11:00 – 12:15pm
Begins the same time as “Big Church” and dismisses when “Big Church” is over

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child:
but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” — I Corinthians 13:11

Children and adults speak differently, understand differently and think (reason) differently. To effectively minister to children, we approach them at their level. At Piney Grove Baptist Church our Kids’ Church is geared to teach children through singing, preaching, and games. Our children are part of the church of today not just the church of tomorrow.

Children’s Church Engages Children:

  • Music is fun and contagious, with songs that have active motions to involve the children!
  • Visitors are given special surprises!
  • Birthdays are made special!
  • Games are interactive, PowerPoint-based, and Bible-centered to grow your children’s knowledge of the Bible!
  • Messages are preached in an exciting way with visual presentations and object lessons! Pastor Joe Reed understands that preaching isn’t just for “Big Church” and engages the children in interactive Bible lessons.
  • Prizes * Prizes * Prizes
    • for Bringing Bible
    • for Paying Attention
    • for Randomly Preselected Seats
      … just to name a few

AWANA is an international, Bible-based, children’s program with 11,000 clubs worldwide. The name AWANA is based upon 2 Timothy 2:15: Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed. The program is for children 3 years old through 6th grade.

Our AWANA program helps teach and train children in the ways of God and to bring them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ at an early age by focusing on scripture memorization and its application to daily life.

During the year there are many different activities such as hat night or favorite sports team night and more. Each age group has its own time for Bible lessons, scripture memorization, and, of course, game time!

For more information about our AWANA Club please contact Joe Gaddis, the AWANA Commander, at the church office 706-657-6362 or
