Bus Routes

Coming soon to SWBC:  Bus Routes!!  It's been some time since we've had a bus ministry, but all in God's time.  Now the time is right and we're excited to be sending Brother Andrew to the National Bus Convention at Clays Mill Road Baptist Church in Lexington, KY in September.  It won't be long and we'll have the buses on the road bringing children and families through the doors.


Our congregation has regular times of fellowship that you'll want to join us for.  These are some of the events we host:

The teenage years can be confusing, difficult, and challenging! But they can also be awesome! Through Sunday classes, weekly outreach, monthly activities, annual trips, retreats, and programs, the teens at Southwest Baptist Church are challenged and equipped to live for Christ while they are in their youth. Each year, the teens can look forward to camps, trips, outreach events, fun activities, and many opportunities to grow in God's Word. We do everything within our power to provide the Bible-based wisdom that teens need, combined with the friendly atmosphere that teens enjoy!

Opening Assembly

Before the children's Sunday School classes meet they gather for a time of songs in the Children's Church class.  


Sunday School

Children ages 4 through 6th grade have classes specifically tailored for their age group.  Please see the SS Map to know which class your child will be attending.  Following the Sunday School hour the children attend Children's Church during the adult morning service.


Children's Church

During the Sunday morning preaching service children ages 4 through 6th grade are encouraged to participate in the Children's Church in the Fellowship building.  Mrs. Carter and Miss Kitty, both grandmothers, plan and prepare lessons for the children for after the song service each week.  This group of children learns more about Bible accounts then in Sunday School.  


King's Kids

At Southwest Baptist we want your children to be just as much a part of the church as every adult.  Through the school year Brother and Mrs. John Nelson head up the King's Kids program at 5:00 p.m. Sundays.  This is a great opportunity for young people to memorize Scripture verses each week.  Every Sunday they attend each child has the opportunity to quote the verses they have learned from their King's Kids booklets.  Once they've quoted a section they earn a mark on their ribbon.  Upon completion of the entire book they receive an award in front of the church recognizing this achievement. 


Children's Choir

Choirs aren't just for adults.  Children ages 4 through 6th grade are welcome to join the Chidlren's Choir.  Mrs. Zoe Martin encourages the young people to sing out and make a joyful noise unto the Lord every Sunday at 6:00 p.m. The third Sunday of the month the children are scheduled to sing during evening service.  Whether you have a little one singing on stage or just get to sit and listen, you'll enjoy hearing what they've learned.


Your newborn to age 3 year old children are welcome to enjoy our nursery.  Caring workers provide a clean and safe environment for your little ones.  The nursery offers playtime with puzzles, toys, and books.  Snacks include Goldfish or Animal Crackers.  Cups are provided for water, but we encourage you to bring your own to prevent spilling.  Should you be needed during the service we'll provide a pager that will vibrate when called.  It's more for peace of mind, as we're often able to keep them entertained while you enjoy the preaching.
