children's MINISTRY

Kindergarten - 4th Grades

We partner with parents to help children learn how to love God, love people, and live a faithful life with Jesus Christ. There are volunteers at the welcome desk every Sunday to get your children signed in and plugged in to the appropriate group.


Children learn about God’s Word and grow closer to God and others. Kids are placed in a small group with friends their same age and grade. Quality volunteer teachers lead the class using Bible study, video, music, activities, and application.

  • 360 CAMPUS :: 10:30am :: Main Building, 2nd floor
  • WEST CAMPUS :: 9:00am :: Children's Room

worship service

Whether before or after Sunday School, children attend the worship service with their parents and their peers.


The Children's Ministry offers a semester-based program for children so that parents can attend an adult Ridge Class, go to choir practice, or volunteer in our Children's or Student Ministry.  Kids from Kindergarten through 4th grade learn that God thinks they matter, and that God can use them to do some special things for His Kingdom. Each week includes lessons, videos, games, and worship music.

  • 360 CAMPUS :: 6:30-8:00pm during semester :: Main Building, 2nd Floor
  • WEST CAMPUS :: 6:30-8:00pm during semester :: Children's Room

safe & secure environment 

Walnut Ridge Baptist Church strives to provide a safe and secure environment for the minors who participate in our programs and activities, whether at authorized off-campus events or at church property. By following these practices, our goal is to protect the children and students of Walnut Ridge Baptist Church from incidents of misconduct or inappropriate behavior, while providing excellence in ministry to families. We intend for our church to be the safest place in town. All volunteers who come in contact with minors are screened and trained: (1) Submit to background check every two years; (2) Attend child safety training; (3) Take child safety test upon completion of training. These training materials are available upon request.
