Our goal as a Children's ministry at Celebration Baptist Church is to equip you to guide your children as they grow to be like Jesus. We only get them for a few hours a week at church, but you have them the rest of the time and we have some great tools to help you make the most of that time!
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and with people.

Family life is full of celebrations and milestones and we want to mark those moments with you. Here are some of the special moments that we commemorate together as a church family.
- Baby Dedication- This is a time to come before the church and make a commitment to raise your child to know, love and serve the Lord and the church commits to join you on this journey. Contact the church office to schedule your baby or child's dedication today!
- Preschool Blessing- Each fall our preschool hosts a picnic for the families of our three-year-olds. At this picnic, Pastor Tommy teaches about praying for our children and families receive a book from the church to help them as their children grow through the preschool years.
- 1st Grade BLAST day– Each year on promotion Sunday (kids move up to new grade) parents join us at 9am for our parent / child welcome to BLAST day. Pastor Tommy welcomes you to BLAST and challenges you to pray for your children, encourage scripture memory, and gives resources on how to continue to raise your child to know, love and serve the Lord.
- 3rd Grade Bible Day- Reading the Bible is an important daily discipline and we want to equip our third graders to incorporate this in their lives. Once a year (in October) parents have a chance to meet with Pastor Tommy and learn about the importance of Bible reading then present their third graders with their very own "Day by Day Kids Bible."
- 5th Grade SMAC- The transition from elementary to middle school can be a tough one and we want to make sure your children are ready for it. During 5th grade we have four Sunday Morning After Church (SMAC) events to help equip them. They will have lunch, go on a field trip and learn more about the BLAST building blocks: respect, wisdom, grace, destiny and perspective. See the 5th Grade SMAC section below for more information.
SMAC stands for Sunday Morning After Church and it's our chance to help your 5th grader get ready for middle school. We meet five Sundays and discuss Respect, Grace, Wisdom, Destiny, and Perspective.
- April- Fun Station
- May-Tree-to-Tree Adventures Ziplining
