Children and Youth Ministries
We love Children & Youth at Benoni Baptist Church!
It is our desire to REACH children with the Good News of Jesus, to TEACH them what it means to follow Him, and we would love to see the children in our various ministries grow up to love the CHURCH.
We teach the Bible in age appropriate and memorable ways. We want to show children the huge privilege we have of being part of the family of God, and how, even at their young age, they can live a life that counts for Jesus. Sunday school seeks to assist parents in the spiritual development of their children, encouraging them to put Proverbs 22:6 into practice – “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it”.
We meet in the Hall and have a time of singing together before going off to our separate classes. Once a month Sunday School starts in Church, and we enjoy a couple minutes of family worship before we go to our classes.
Sunday School takes place during the morning service @ 09:00, and we have classes for children of all ages - Creche (birth to 36 months) to Gr 7. We do not meet for Sunday School during school holidays.
'Fired Up' is our Teen Church program that runs concurrently with Sunday School. (Gr 8-12)
ROCK - Reaching Out for Christ to Kids
We play lots of fun, interactive games and each week we teach a biblical principle in a creative way.
ROCK is open to all children, from Grade R – Grade 5. We meet in the church Hall every Friday evening, from 17:30-19:00 (except during school holidays)
Connect is a Friday evening program just for those in Gr 6 & Gr 7.
We understand that life as a Tween is complex - where do you fit it? At Connect we aim to relate to the guys and girls in such a way that they see we care about them, and that we 'get' them.
We play awesome games, have good thought provoking discussion and of course time for snacks.
Come along and see what Connect is all about. Friends are always welcome!
Connect runs every Friday (during the school term) from 17:30 - 19:00. We meet in the Coffee Bar (the building next door to the Church Hall).
Calling all Grade 8's - 12′s!
We meet at Church every Friday night, at 19:30-21:30 (just not during school holidays – unless we have a Social Evening)
What do we do?? We chill out & get to know one another better, play some good games… and get into the Word of God so that we can know HIM better too!
We always have a lot of fun at youth – some of the things we have done together include Ten Pin Bowling, Braai’s, Pizza evenings, and lots more. We have loads of exciting things planned, so come and join us!
