Welcome to Kids R.O.C.K.—Kids relying on Christ the King—the children’s ministry of Sarasota Baptist Church. Our mission is to join with families in connecting parents and their children to Jesus Christ. All that we do in activities and programming is done with that goal in mind.
On Sunday mornings, we encourage families to worship together at our 9 am worship service. At 10:30 we offer community groups for children in grades 1 through 5. We use a curriculum called 252 Basics produced by Orange (see www.whatisorange.org). 252 Basics is built around three basic truths which Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52. They are:
These key concepts are taught as we study monthly a different life app—a quality of God’s nature that He instills in those who follow him. We have a large group time of upbeat worship in music and teaching, followed by breaking up into small groups for application and discussion. Parents receive a monthly “cue” card so they know what we are learning, and children receive a “God Time” card to guide them through personal devotions that week.
On Wednesdays during the school year, we offer Awana for preschool through 6th grade. Clubbers enjoy a high energy game time, a large group teaching time, and small group handbook time where they earn awards for memorizing Scripture. Awana is a tried and true program whose goal is to reach children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to train them to serve Him.
At other times during the year we offer special activities which may include family picnics and bonfires, open gym nights, movie nights, a fall family festival, children’s choir, Backyard Bible Adventures, and mission opportunities.
We love to welcome visitors and see them become a part of our family. Come, join us, and let’s grow together as we learn to love God and to love others!
