Other Highlights

Worship Bags
During each worship service, children are encouraged to grab a colorful canvas worship bag full of fun items that will help them follow along in the service and worship God from their own unique perspective. Bags are available in the clear tupperware bin labelled, “Worship Bags!”

Children’s Sunday
On the Sunday before Mother’s Day each year, the children of BBC lead us in worship, taking on almost all of the responsibilities of the 8:45 and 11:00 services. On this special day, children offer our prayers, take our offerings, read our Scripture, provide our music, and much, much more!

Vacation Bible School
What would a children’s ministry be without VBS?! Every year, we transform a week of the summer into a fun-filled adventure of learning more about Jesus. Learn more about this year’s theme here!

Family Fun Nights
We’re a family at BBC, and at least one Sunday each month, we try and get our family together for some fun—and children, of course, play a central role! Learn more about our Family Fun Night activities here.

Trips and Outings
BBC kids know how to have a good time away from church, too! That’s why we like to keep fun trips and outings on the calendar. We’ve been plenty of places—like the pool, the bowling alley, the movies, Campbell basketball games—and we’re gonna go to plenty more!

Parents’ Night Out
Sometimes parents need a breather. A time or two each year, we try to give them that by hosting a Parents’ Night Out—an evening where parents can drop their kids off at church, where they will be cared for and fed by loving volunteers, so that mom and dad can have some time to themselves!

Easter Egg Hunt
The Easter Bunny comes early to BBC, scattering eggs all over the church lawn on the Sunday before Easter. It takes every boy and girl of every age to help us pick them all up!

Lighthouse Parade and Trunk or Treat
On the Sunday before Halloween, children come to church in their costumes, pulling behind them decorated cardboard boxes with images cut out. A light shines in each box, demonstrating our call from Jesus to shine for him! We parade our boxes for several blocks around the church, then return to the parking lot for Trunk or Treat, where adults in the church decorate their car trunks and hand out much-deserved treats!

Christmas Caroling
A BBC tradition, children of every age love joining us one Sunday each December in traveling to different members’ houses singing carols. All that singing makes us pretty hungry, of course, so we always come back to church for a Christmas meal afterwards!
