The goal of our Kid's Ministry (Nursery - 6th Grade) is to partner with families to
raise a generation for Christ. We seek to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to grow in their
knowledge and love for the Gospel through Scripture, Songs, Games, Fellowship, and various events throughout the year.
Sunday Small Groups
Kids break into age-graded small groups to study the Bible, and discuss how it applies to their lives. This is where kids have the greatest opportunity for consistent spiritual growth. Our leaders come excited every week to build relationships with kids and point them to Christ.
Do you know who is Setting the Pace? In every race, athletes need a pacesetter. In Life, Jesus sets the pace for how we should live. TeamKID helps kids know that Jesus is the one they should follow! Every week the Kids study Scripture, sing to God, memorize Scripture, play games and learn about local and global missions.
Nursery is certainly not something you have to take advantage of, but it is available on Sundays, Wednesdays and various events. We place the highest priority on your child's safety, care and are intentional about teaching them the truths of Scripture. Come meet our army of volunteers, they'll show you the nursery area and answer any questions you might have.
For those who desire to participate, they'll be dismissed during Corporate Worship. Throughout this time, kids are taught Scripture, take part in various crafts, play games and sing songs. We desire to see Kids develop a Biblical worldview.
Rachel is a Livingston, Texas, native who received her bachelor's degree from Sam Houston State University in 2012. She and her husband John moved to Weldon in 2018 and have been members of Antioch Baptist Church since their move. John and Rachel have two girls, Emma and Ella, both proud, very proud Lovelady Lions. In their free time, The Kennedys love to be outdoors. Camping, hunting, gardening, and spending time with their animals are a few of their favorite things.
Rachel came to know the Lord as her savior at the age of 8 at Daniel Springs Church Camp and followed through with baptism at Bethel Baptist Church in Livingston, where she grew up. She has since taught Sunday School and Children’s Church volunteered with the Youth, and oversaw the Antioch Baptist Church Nursery.
Antioch Baptist Church believes that an introduction to Christ during a child’s most impressionable years is pivotal. As the Children’s Ministry Coordinator and a fellow believer in Christ at a young age, Rachel strives to make that introduction fun and engaging while ensuring that the Gospel is communicated through solid bible teaching.
Antioch Baptist Church has an excellent team of teachers for Wednesday night in the KidZone with TeamKid, and Sunday morning Kid’s Worship and Bible teaching as a group, followed by age-specialized teaching in small groups.
