Children’s Ministry

North Shelby Baptist Church would like to welcome you and your child to our church.  It is our desire to minister to your child’s spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. In NSBC Kids our motto is “Aim for Jesus.” We strive to “Aim for Jesus”  in everything we do through Bible study, missions, discipleship, singing, and serving others. This ties into our church’s mission statement which is “Loving God. Loving One another. Sharing Jesus with the world”.

NSBC Kids is open to bed babies up to 5th graders. Our rooms are divided by age and staffed by trained and loving caregivers who have completed background checks.  We are committed to providing a warm, caring, and secure environment for your child. Please e-mail our Children’s and Preschool Ministry, as we would love to answer your questions ( 


Sundays Mornings

8:00/10:30 Worship Services – Childcare and Bible lessons are provided for bed babies through Kindergartners.  A worship guide/activity page that coincides with our Pastor’s message is located in the foyer of the church on the “I Got The Message!” display to help our first through fifth graders stay engaged during the service. At the end of the service, return the clipboard to the designated box and return the completed worship guide/activity page with your child’s name on it in the “I Got The Message!” box.  We will have a drawing at the end of each month for a prize for a boy and a girl. (Our NSBC Kids monthly newsletter is also provided.)

9:15 Sunday School – NSBC Kids study God’s Word with Gospel Project for Kids curriculum from Lifeway.  It’s more than a story—it’s good news!  Children of all ages dive deep into the big story of the Bible—God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son, Jesus Christ!

Sunday Evenings

Wednesday Evenings

Exploring Christianity for Kids

First Step: What is a Christian? Class is a one time class for kids that helps them answer questions about becoming a Christian. 

Content covered included questions about God, Jesus, Sin, The Gospel, Becoming a Christian, Heaven, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. Children will take home a “What is a Christian” activity book that includes a parent section that equips parents to have conversations with children who are asking questions about the gospel.

Next Step: New Believers Class is for children who have made a decision to follow Jesus. It teaches them how to follow Jesus’ example, how to share their testimony, and even more about what it means to be a believer of Jesus Christ. Activity Books are included that serve as an excellent and comprehensive study for helping children understand the decision they have made and what it means to live a Christian life. The Activity Books focus on topics that include daily information and application activities. 

Topics covered include Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Being a Church Member, and Developing a Quiet Time. 

One time classes will usually be held once a month throughout the year on Sunday evenings from 5:00 – 7:00.

*Please contact the church office for dates and registration.
