Preschool Sunday School Is Not Just Childcare

Preschool Sunday School is about building a foundation on Jesus’s love! In this session, we’ll talk about characteristics of the young child, meeting their needs and discovering how they learn. Our goal is to give them the building blocks of faith that can lead to a lifetime of learning and growing in Jesus. Session leader will be Beth Baldwin, director of preschool and children’s ministries at First Baptist, Tallassee.

All Around the Room

Beth Henderson, minister to preschoolers at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, will lead this informative session about the importance of learning centers and how to best use available classroom space.

Personnel Management

This webinar is designed to aid church personnel committees in the church’s relationship with the church staff and of learning the basic job of personnel committee members, updating new information relating to employees and how to provide for the financial and working needs of the church personnel. It will also be helpful to churches considering the addition of new staff members and covers the process of calling a ministerial staff person and employing other personnel staff as the church deems needed. This session will be led by State Missionary Lee Wright.

Nothing Less

We love our children and want to be good parents and leaders. We want our kids to know God and grow in their relationship with Him. Trends show that our culture is becoming increasingly secular with fewer younger generations staying in church. What can families do to help their kids know God and continue to stay in a growing relationship with Him? Come learn about the greatest influences of spiritual health for your kids and how to focus on what is really most important for our children. This session is led by Cindy Thomas, children and preschool minister at FBC Dothan, and Belinda Stroud, state missionary for childhood discipleship at the State Board of Missions.

Safety First

Before we can provide the most effective learning and Christ-centered environment possible, we must make sure we are providing a safe and secure ministry environment. In this session, we will explore policies, job descriptions, guidelines, security procedures, volunteer manuals and more. Not only will we discuss content, but we will also examine effective ways to make sure your volunteers, parents and kids are informed and understand your safety plan. This session will be led by Danielle Bell, minister to children at Dawson Memorial Baptist Church, and Belinda Stroud, state missionary for childhood discipleship at the State Board of Missions.

Discipling Our Children

Ministry often stretches beyond Sunday morning. Maybe that’s a Sunday evening or another midweek gathering, or possibly in our own homes in the new world of social distancing. How do we teach Bible skills? Personal spiritual habits? Deeper Bible study? Missions? How can we equip parents on how to disciple their own children? Join us as we talk how to implement these deeper discipleship practices in our kids’ lives in this enriching session led by Jeremy Carroll, LifeWay Kids Ministry publishing manager for VBS and discipleship resources, and Belinda Stroud, state missionary for childhood discipleship.
