Nothing serves as so precious a reminder of God's blessing to us as the birth of a child. Every newborn baby should have the joy and privilege of being brought into a truly Christian home. It is the responsibility of the local church nursery and preschool ministry to provide all the help possible to parents as they seek to serve the Lord, bring their children to church, and teach their children to know God. With all the attention given to the physical facilities of the nursery and preschool, let us never forget the vital importance of the Christian Family.
Children are a gift from God. They are given to parents, and it is the responsibility of parents to give their children back to God. Giving a child to God involves first he surrender of the parents' will to the will of God.
Young people must be taught the clear commandments of God's Word. The Bible says in II Timothy 2:2, "And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also."
The purpose of the local church youth ministry is to help equip families with the necessary tools from God's Word to lay the right foundation for the rest of life. It is of our task to take the place of parents by keeping young people active while separated from home and family. We must work to help entire families serve the Lord together. The essential for the youth minister is to walk with God and work with parents.
You may retire from work, but you never retire from the work of the Lord. Our ministry gives senior adults a place to continue to grow in their faith and to show the wisdom they have achieved through experience.

Master Club is for all kids from ages 3 - 6th grade. We hope this Ministry makes a difference and helps build kids closer to the Lord.

Scripture Memory System
Our Scripture Memory System sets us apart from most of the other Club programs available today. In Master Clubs, children are not taught to memorize 200 verses in 30 weeks. Instead, we have carefully selected 20 verses per year for Beginners and Primaries and 30 verses per year for Juniors. These verses are life-changing verses that we explain to the child and reinforce in the project workbooks. Our goal is for each child to understand what the Scripture means and then teach him how to live out those truths in real life.
We help our children develop godly habits by providing opportunities for them to practice what they have learned during the Bible lesson or during Book Time. Each workbook has projects that the children complete which might be making cookies for a neighbor, visiting elderly in nursing homes, cleaning a neighbor's yard, writing notes to siblings, parents, and the pastor, and many more. This helps establish early in the child's life those habits that all Christians ought to possess.
Serving Christ Now
Children can serve God now. Although we wouldn't teach this, children assume that they must wait until they are "older" before they can serve God. In Master Clubs a child will learn that he or she can serve God now by teaching a Bible story, preaching to a group of children, sharing the Gospel with others, and many other opportunities. Our goal is to plant seed thoughts in the mind of each child that God can use them to do great things, and it can start today!
Throughout our curriculum, children are presented with character building stories. They are taught how to work through a situation making the best choices. Honesty, integrity, loving others, kindness, and obedience are just a sampling of what these young hearts will investigate in Master Clubs.
Many have said that if they could sum up Master Clubs in one word it would be Discipleship. Many have mistakenly thought that if their children go through elementary and high school attending Sunday school and church that they will be discipled. Not so. Discipleship is something that happens "on purpose." If there is no plan to discipleship children in the church, chances are that they are not being discipled. Discipleship goes beyond sitting in a room and hearing a lesson taught. Discipleship is one on one interaction between a child and a leader. This allows us to reach into the heart of that child and help them grow from where they are now to what God wants them to be. Jesus was a master teacher and discipler, yet He choose to only closely disciple twelve. Master Clubs creates the perfect opportunity for us to begin that discipleship relationship with the children in our church and community.
Because Master Clubs is catering only to Baptist churches, we can teach our kids truths that would never even be mentioned in most curricula. For instance, we can teach our kids on their level about the Lords Supper, baptism, eternal security, and things to come.
King James Bible
All of the curriculum and teacher training resources only use Scripture from the King James (KJV) Authorized Version of the Bible.
