Family & Children’s Ministries

Our Purpose

Family Ministries at TBBF exists to Glorify God by multiplying mature disciples who know Jesus Christ and make Him known, specifically focusing upon evangelizing children, encouraging parents and equipping volunteers for the work of the ministry.

It is our desire to evangelize children with the good news of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and then teach them how to walk faithfully with Him for the rest of their lives (Matt. 28:18-20). The children’s ministry strives to proclaim the gospel and teach the Bible to children through during regular worship times on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. These times are coupled with outreach into the community through Good News Clubs at local elementary schools and other special events throughout the year.

Family Ministries also exists to encourage parents to faithfully raise their children and teach them the ways of the Lord. Parents have the primary responsibility of teaching their children God’s word and modeling a life of faith for their children (Eph. 6:4; Deut. 6:6-9), and the church is here to support and encourage parents in that responsibility (Col. 1:28). We strive to minister to parents by providing safe child care during worship services and Bible studies so that they can listen without distractions. In addition to this basic service, TBBF Family Ministries also offers Sunday morning classes for couples, and parenting and marriage seminars and conferences, parenting resources and counseling.

Lastly, since Children’s Ministry naturally requires many volunteers and a committed team that works together to reach the children and families with the gospel, Family Ministries also works to disciple and equip volunteers so that they can be instruments in God’s hands to minister to others. As volunteers and teachers grow in applying Scripture to their own lives, they will naturally be equipped to better teach and disciple children and families for the Glory of God and the benefit of the entire church body (Eph. 4:11-16).
