Children & Youth


Welcome to the Children’s Department!!

At Pavo Baptist Church, we love children.  Many of us are parents and grandparents, and we want to see our children and grandchildren grow in their knowledge of, and love for, God.  We know that when parents are looking for a church, they want to make sure their children & youth are safe, loved, and taught about God.

All our children’s workers at PBC have undergone a background check, to ensure that your children will be safe.  We provide a caring and nurturing environment for children and youth of all ages.  We have many children and youth at church and they have fun learning and growing together in Christ.

We are committed to teaching children about Jesus.  We also believe that parents have the privilege and duty of teaching their children about God.  This is found in passages such as Deuteronomy 6:4-7 and Ephesians 6:4, which speak to the importance of teaching children God’s commandments.  We also believe that the church has a responsibility to teach all people, including children, about God.

We offer Sunday school for children & youth (as well as for adults).  Sunday school is from 10:00 am to 10:45 a.m., right before our worship service at 11:00 am.  Our Children’s and Youth classes are divided up into two classes.  The first class in is taught by Mrs. Christian Payne and is Grades 1st – 6th.   Then the second class is taught by Ms. Krista Dance and is Grades 7th – 12th.   Our Children and Youth are currently using the “Learning My Faith” curriculum from Regular Baptist Press.

On Every other Wednesday Night we offer The Mailbox Club® and a small snack at 6:30 p.m.  The Mailbox Club is an exciting hand-to-hand Bible correspondence course ministry for children ages 4 through 12. The Mailbox Club lessons are Christ-centered, true to the Bible and full of hope for your child or any child you believe would benefit from these wonderful teachings.  The Classes are taught by our Children’s Group Leader, Ms. Krista Dance.  Check our Calendar for a listing of meeting times.

Our Children and Youth also participate in mission projects, associational events, and church ministry events.   They take fun trips together outside of the city of Pavo.  Vacation Bible School is also a fun part of our Children’s & Youth Department.  This summer activity is a great witnessing tool for Children and Youth who do not normally attend church.  Be sure to check our website often for VBS dates and times.

We teach age-appropriate material that is biblical in content.  Our church is committed to teaching God’s truth through His Word, whether we are teaching children or adults.
