children & youth

Our kids' programs provide opportunities for children age 0 to grade 5 to learn the Bible. We do this primarily through providing Sunday School classes for all ages and grades on Sunday morning. 


Our mission and desire is to partner with parents and guardians in discipling their children.


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

Adults

Opportunities for adults to gather include Congregational Worship, Sunday School classes, Small Groups on Sunday evenings, Congregational Bible Study on Wednesday evenings, 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). As a youth ministry we understand ourselves to be partnering with parents in teaching their students of who God is and what he has done. 


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. Contact Paul for more info.
