“Seeing with depth, appreciating newly discovered dimensions of life—that is, learning—is an important part of the spiritual life.”- Dr. J. Bradley Wigger
Our children’s department is committed to helping children engage faith at their varied stages of development. We aim to create an environment for the children to learn the sacred stories of our faith as children see, hear, and experience these stories with new depths.
The UBC Children’s Choir is open to any child from pre-school through 5th grade. We focus on a fun and integrated approach of learning to sing through a scripturally-based music curriculum. Our choir sings in worship periodically and for special seasons of the church year. We meet from 9:00-9:45 in the UBC Kids Place. Contact UBC’s Minister of Music and Outreach, Landry Duvall, for more information.
Pre-K through 4th grade
Using the lectionary-based curriculum Whirl, both the older (1-4 grades) and younger (Pre-K- Kinder) children’s classes will have a fun-fill, interactive, and learning-centered Bible Study experience. Following the Revised Common Lectionary, the children will learn to connect their Bible Study learning to the larger life and seasons of the church. Both classes meet in the Kid’s Place and the younger Children will be taught by Kari Taylor and the older children will be taught by Bill Cox. Go on, give it a whirl and click here to learn more.
Babies and Toddlers
Children up to 3 years old have childcare from 9:30am until 12:15pm every Sunday. The toddlers (2-3 years) use the curriculum Play: an interactive way of teaching children basic Bible stories and leads the children on a joyful discovery of God’s love.
Parents’ Night Out
Parents are invited to enjoy an evening of free childcare courtesy of UBC on the first Saturday of the month from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM in the Kids Place.
Austin Capital Grannies provide consistent, reliable care for our babies and children in compliance with our Risk Management Policy, which requires us to provide two adult workers with children in each room at all times. All of our childcare and Bible Study teachers for children have background checks for the protection of our children.
University Baptist Church offers additional free childcare for all children during most church meetings and events. Throughout the year, the children have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities from Vacation Bible School to Children’s Camp with the Southwest Baptist Children’s Camping Association. Please contact Associate Pastor Stephanie Cooper for more information about these activities.
