The mission of The Children’s Ministry at South Run Baptist is to join with families to love and educate children in such a way that they desire to become committed and compassionate followers of Christ.

To continually work towards this mission we ensure the programs and activities offered are designed to meet a variety of needs for children from newborn to grade six.  Children are provided with opportunity for Bible study, Scripture memorization, fellowship, music, and mission education.  In order to partner with our families we offer many opportunities for family involvement from fellowship to ministry opportunities – creating a community of compassionate Christ followers.  


Sunday Morning Bible Studies meet for children all ages from 9:45-10:45 each Sunday morning. During this time, children are provided an opportunity to learn about the Christian beliefs, faith, discipleship, missions, and Christian living.  Age appropriate activities are provided so that children are able to learn and apply the truths they are learning.  Teachers provide hands-on, engaging activities for each age group.  


Wednesday nights during the school year, our children are able to focus on the importance of missions and service in our Christian faith.  Our Wednesday night programs are designed to be family friendly and offer something for everyone.  

Our Wednesday night schedule is (September  – April):
Dinner provided beginning at 5:45 pm
6:30-7:30 Royal Ambassadors, Girls in Action, and Mission Friends

Pre-Teen Ministry

We want to build a community of support for the preteens of South Run (5th-6th graders) and also facilitate friendships among the kids. To start, we will invite the kids to join us for fun afternoon/evenings every 1 or 2 months (Fridays or Saturdays). We will have a game night, go to a movie, go bowling, or other activities in the Springfield area. We will focus on fostering friendship among the kids and mentoring-type relationships between the leaders and kids. We will create a team-like environment where the preteens feel accepted and able to talk openly with peers and leaders about social issues, the character of God, the world we live in, and any other topics about which we (as leaders) can impart godly wisdom. The families with leadership roles for this next year will be the Turners and the Menzies with help from other families as needed.
