Goodwin Memorial Baptist Church provides child-focused teachings of the Bible which are flexible friendly and fun. As well as our church members, we welcome all visiting non members between the ages of 6-12.
Through Children’s Church programs, boys and girls in our church and the community can build healthy relationships with caring Christian adults, peers, and most importantly, Jesus Christ. Our Christian Education team actively promotes the values of Goodwin to our children, added with the understanding of church etiquette; and respect for God. Each child should come to Children’s Church prepared with their Bibles and eager to learn. Any child who does not have a Bible will be given one to help them connect with our Lord.
