children & youth

Our kids' programs provide opportunities for children age 0 to grade 5 to learn the Bible through several Sunday morning and Wednesday night activities. We have Sunday School classes for all ages and grades and offer a robust and lively AWANA program on Wednesday nights. 


We also offer exceptional childcare for infants and toddlers during our Sunday morning and evening gatherings. We refrain from offering activities or classes for grade school aged children during our Sunday morning service to enable families to worship together.


AWANA: New year begins Wednesday, September 12th, 2018. We meet weekly from 6:15pm-8:00pm on Wednesdays through May. Kids from ages 3 - those in 6th grade can participate. The cost is $35 per child with maximum of $85 for a family of 3 or more children. AWANA is a program that focuses on Scripture memory with the goal that as our kids memorize the Bible, the all-powerful Word of God will change hearts. Click on register to do so online.

Adults

Opportunities for adults to gather include Congregational Worship, Sunday School classes, Congregational Prayer on Sunday evenings, Congregational Bible Study on Wednesday evenings, Summer Small Groups, a men’s Theology Breakfast and a Ladies’ Tea on alternating months.


Our prayer for our adult ministries is that "organized" will lead to "organic". We want to foster an environment through our named gatherings where members are encouraged to build individual relationships that are saturated by Scripture and prayer.

Music

"But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you." Psalm 5:11


Corporate singing is a significant part of our gatherings on sunday mornings at Stafford Baptist! It is both a joyful response to God's abundant goodness and mercy, and a conscious affirmation of belief in His Word. Additionally, our singing is intentionally geared toward preparing our hearts to hear the teaching of God's Word each week.


When we gather as a body to sing, we have the joyful privilege of joining together in eager obedience out of the overflow of grateful hearts. We sing a mixture of traditional hymns, contemporary and original music, and older familiar hymn lyrics set to contemporary melodies.


OASIS

Oasis is our youth ministry for middle and high schoolers (6th-12th grade). We gather regularly on Sunday nights at 6pm, during which we prioritize the study of God's Word and building significant spiritual relationships. This is done through the exegetical teaching and applying of God's Word, through hanging out, playing games and participating in small groups.


We also participate in and attend various events from service projects to youth camps and lots in between. Check out the calendar to see what's coming up!
