"Creating Followers of Christ by Partnering with Parents."

Park Place

 Beginning in our indoor “Park,” we partner with parents by praying for the babies in our care each time they enter our nursery. Also in The Park are the Toddler and Preschool Sunday School classes, as well as Pre-K Church. Here we teach our kids that they are part of God’s big story and focus on instilling into them six core truths that we refer to as “The Big 6”:

  1. God is good.
  2. God gave us the Bible.
  3. God loves everyone.
  4. God gave us Jesus.
  5. God wants us to worship Him.
  6. God made everything.

Because everything is in one place, you can drop your children off in The Park for Sunday School and pick them up after the Church Hour without having to worry about them switching rooms.  Also, with our check-in/out system you can feel secure in knowing your children are safe. 

Kindergarten through 5th Grade

As children grow and enter our K-5th grade programs, we continue to partner with parents and teach our kids how God is relevant in their lives today because they are a part of His big story.

K-2nd and 3rd-5th Sunday School Classes are upstairs. Here they will have fun singing songs, making crafts, and doing activities that go along with the Big God Story which they will learn about that week.

During the Church Hour we have two programs for children in grades K-5th. First we have Kidz Church, which is for the children in K-2rd grade. They meet every week in the fellowship hall during the sermon portion of our church service. Here they go over the Big God Story that they learned in Sunday School, as well as play games and do activities that go along with the lesson. AMP'D Ministries is designed especially for 4-5th graders. Every other week, during the church service, they meet downstairs and learn about ways to build their love for God and others. We do this by studying the Bible, playing games, fun activities, and crafts.

Our Goal

 Kids who are fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ – that’s the goal of the trained Kidz Ministry staff at Panama Baptist Church. To reach this goal, we do three things:

  1. Pray together regularly.
  2. Partner with parents.
  3. Provided environments that are safe – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
