BaseCamp Children's Ministry


A basecamp is a staging area for climbers to gather before they set out for a climb. It's an area of preparation. Children's ministry is a place where we want to prepare your child with a solid foundation before they head out into their Christian walk. Here at Lake Ridge Baptist Church we strive to equip kids to know about God's love, grow in His love, and show that love to others.

From a Kid's View

It's so amazing to see families worship together! When families worship together it's a great opportunity to discuss what the sermon was about, what song they liked, or any p art of the worship service over lunch! A way to get the children involved in the service is to have them draw the sermon! In the back of the  Sanctuary are clipboards and crayons. On the clipboard is a piece of paper with blank space for drawing! When it's time for the sermon to start, it's time for drawing to start! Encourage your child to draw what the pastor is saying! After the service, drop it in to the drawing box where you got the clipboard from. Every piece of artwork will be displayed in the nursery wing on a bulletin board for everyone to see.

Sunday Connect Groups

The Gospel Project, restarting at Genesis will be the focus of Sunday morning activities for kids. This will help reinforce lessons from Wednesday night. Sunday Connect Groups meet from 9-10:15 am.

Hands On Bible

Preschoolers have the option to attend Hands On Bible during both worship services. In Hands On Bible, children experience the powerful connections between scripture and everyday life. Teachers use everyday objects, just as Jesus did, to capture children's attention and engage their senses to help reinforce Bible truths.



KidPower! is a children's vocal team. Practices are Wednesday afternoons from 5-5:45 pm. At various times throughout the year, KidPower! helps lead music at the Sunday worship service or other activities. We wrap it up by 5:45 pm to give the kids to have time to eat at our family dinner before going on to The Anchor.

The Anchor

An anchor is something that provides a firm basis or foundation when climbing a mountain. Each week kids will be anchored in the life-changing story of the Bible: the story of how God loves us and sent us Jesus to rescue us. Kids will work through "The Jesus Story Book Bible." From Noah to Moses, to great King David, every story points to Jesus, the one upon whom everything would depend. There are many storis in the Bible, but all the stories tell one Big Story.

The Anchor is for kids preK through grade 5 and meets during the school year on Wednesdays from 6:15 to 7:30 pm.
