Children's Ministry

Our philosophy at BCC is to make your children feel known, valued, and loved! We create opportunities for them to grow in their connection with God and others. We offer three different opportunities for these connections, which are listed below. However, we believe YOU as their guardian are the most influential person in their faith journey. If you have any questions, please reach out to Michael Hinnen at mdhinnen@lincolnchristian.edu. You can register your children by clicking here

  • Encore (Children's church)

    During each worship service, we invite children to stay and worship with their family and friends. About midway through the service, Pre-K through 5th-grade children are led out of to the sanctuary to age specific environments. Both occur in the children's hallway.

    • Toddler Encore (Pre-K-Kindergarten) occurs in Room 130.
    • Elementary Encore (1st Grade-5th Grade) occurs in Room 135. 
    • Infant Encore (Birth-2 years old) occurs in Room 122. Infant Encore is staffed throughout the entire service. 

    What to expect: Once getting to the church, please check-in your children at the children's check-in table (check out the video HERE). You will be provided a label for the child and for a parent. Then about halfway through the worship service, the children will be dismissed from the sanctuary and a teacher will lead them to their assigned classrooms. They will participate in age-appropriate Bible stories and activities. After the service, please have one parent go to the assigned room and sign-out their child with the assigned label. 


    If you have not registered your child yet, please do so here. Children's packets, which have supplemental resources for the children, are available in the lobby. 

  • j.A.M. (sunday school)

    Our JAM classes offer an opportunity for our kids to grow deeper in their relationship with God and others on Sunday mornings. We teach through the Bible chronologically every 3 years, using the Gospel Project curriculum. Our goal is to help our kids see that the Bible is a unified story that leads to Jesus. We offer classes for those Pre-K-12th Grade. 

    • Pre-K & K are in Room 123.
    • 1st-2nd grade are in Room 124.
    • 3rd-5th grade are in Room 127.
    • 6th-8th grade will be in Room 129.

However, it is only being offered for Pre-K-5th Grade Kids. 6th-12th grade teens are encouraged to attend Youth Group. More info on Youth Group can be found here. The dates for God Squad in the Fall of 2021 are October 13, 20, November 3, 10, 17, and December 1, 8, 15.
