Jesus believed that children are precious in the here and now and He gave them His full attention and love. At Bay Leaf Baptist Church we too view children in the same manner. Therefore, we seek to reach them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, our desire is to disciple them with the Word of God and assist them in developing a strong foundation in their faith while providing a safe environment where they can have fun and build lasting relationships as they grow closer to God.

Children’s Church is a means of imparting Biblical truth to children. Therefore, the material Bay Leaf uses is true to Scripture and presents the Bible as one continuous, interconnected story of the revelation of the character of God and His plan of redemption of man.
