Our Goals for Children and Youth:

At Milledge Avenue Baptist Church we believe that the family is the center of faith development and spiritual formation for children and youth. 

Relationships- We want our students to learn from a church FAMILY so we do our best to provide multigenerational leaders and volunteers for our student ministry programs where children, youth, and their families can develop relationships with many different members of our church family.

Age Appropriate- We want students to learn about the love of God in ways they understand. We provide curriculum and learning environments that foster age-appropriate learning.

Safety- Families can trust that their children are cared for by workers and volunteers that have been background checked and screened. Security tags and pager systems are in place in the nursery for parent's peace of mind.

Creative and Fun- When students have fun and positive learning experiences at church they want to come back! 

Christ Centered- In everything we do, we want children to learn about the love of God and to ultimately become Christ followers. We never sacrifice the truth of scripture for fun or entertainment.


Family Centered Ministry for Children
We offer nursery for birth to 3 years of age on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Our nursery is located on the 1st floor of the Kinney Children's Building. It is staffed with wonderful, caring, volunteers as well as paid staff who will take care of your children. We assign families a pager and security tag in case you are needed. You must present your pager and tag at the end of the service to pick up your child.


  • Preschool Sunday School- toddlers, and pre-k- age appropriate lessons and fun bible learning. 
  • Children's Church for ages 3 and 4 - Because we value family centered learning, children ages 3 and 4 join their families for the first part of the worship service and are then dismissed after the Children's Sermon to go to Children's Church (located on the 1st floor of the Kinney Children's Building). This is a special age appropriate service just for younger children.
  • Worship Bags for 4 year olds who join their families in worship. It includes crayons and fun activities.   


  • Sunday School- age appropriate classes taught by wonderful educators with fun, interactive Bible study. 
  • WorshipChildren in Pre-k through 5th grade join their families in our worship service.  Worship bags are provided with tools to help children interact with the service.
  • Children's Church- Children in Pre-k through 2nd grade after worshipping with their family for the first portion of the service, these students are dismissed after the children’s sermon to go to a special time of worship and learning designed just for them!  Children’s church is located on the 2nd Floor of the Kinney Children’s Building.
