Children are a special part of the ministry at Crescent Hill. Sunday School, mission education and projects, Elementary Choir, and special activities and events are offered for children birth through 5th grade.
At Crescent Hill Baptist Church we minister to the whole child — the spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional needs of children. Crescent Hill Baptist Church strives to develop and implement a comprehensive ministry with children, seeking to disciple them in the way of Christ and to work for justice in their behalf.
We will work with other churches, agencies, and those who care for and speak in behalf of children. We will reflect our commitment to children in the use of our resources and make children a priority in our decision-making, budgeting, and programming.
Crescent Hill Baptist Church commits itself to being a sanctuary for children as our response to Jesus’ teaching that in the Kingdom of God to which we bear witness, the smallest and least powerful shall be first. We pledge to make no distinction between “our” children and the children of others in our circles of care. We believe that to provide for the safety and well-being of children, we must ensure that the community and world in which they live becomes a safe and nurturing environment. We strive to be and to develop that kind of community for all children.
