Baptist Principles for Children!

We’ve made the freedoms found in Baptist life sound so stuffy that it’s hard to imagine teaching them to children. In Celebrate Freedom, we use language and activities that kids understand to help them learn about Baptist freedoms. A central story taken from Baptist life helps introduce children to real men and women who helped us shape our Baptist life together. Our “beach party” motif helps keep their attention and makes promotion easier.

How Do You Teach Your Children Baptist Principles?

“Mommy, why do people call us Baptist? What does it mean to be a Baptist?”

If you’ve ever thought about teaching Baptist distinctives to your children, you probably wondered how to do it. Adults have a habit of making ideas too complex for children, and talk of Baptist distinctives sounds, well… boring.

Celebrate Freedom is a new VBS that believes Baptist distinctives are both important, and interesting! We’ve gathered games, activities, stories, music and projects that help young minds discover the fascinating heritage of Baptists.

Each day, Celebrate Freedom focuses upon a different Baptist distinctive. Then, children rotate between 5 different areas: Bible activities, stories, projects, music, and recreation/snacks.

Using a beach party theme, children will learn of Baptist heroes (these stories are even more interesting than we remembered!), sing songs about freedom, faith, and the Bible, and discover that being Baptist is not only important, but a lot of fun!
