We encourage you to give your child an amazing, life-long gift; a solid understanding of their Christian Faith by learning a catechism.
For hundreds of years, Baptists rooted their families in the Christian Faith by means of a catechism. We are restoring that practice.
A catechism is a series of questions and answers that are age-appropriate for children, and cover the basics of theology, the 10 Commandments, and the Lord's Prayer. We use the New City Catechism, a new catechism that contains 52 questions. We teach our children one question a week by use of games, songs, and discussing what the question and answer means for their faith and life.
Here's more information about the New City Catechism:

From an Email:
Just wanted to share how my kids are responding to our Sunday night Catechisms.
Twice this week we have been driving in the car and Thomas has heard a word or phrase in a song that has made him stop and say, "mommy did you hear what they said?"
One time it was " life and death," and the other time was "creator." Each time I asked Thomas the Catechism question that went with the phrase and he knew the answer! Madison also had a conversation with Matt asking about the trinity.
These would have not happened if we weren't doing the Catechism classes!
Todd thanks for leading this and Karl, thanks for introducing us to them!
Our children and parents enjoy a safe, clean nursery that is available for every worship service and meeting held at our church building.
