Second Baptist Church Welcomes Family’s and Embraces Your Children

Mark 9:36-37 NLT: 36 Then he put a little child among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf[a] welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but also my Father who sent me.”

Second Baptist Church provides comprehensive support for children from nursery age through 12 years old. We offer age-appropriate Children’s Church Worship services for youth ages 6 -12, giving them opportunities to praise and worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
