It is our intent in Sunday School to incorporate the values listed above through the functions of the church as we move forward. We are working toward building a Sunday School Program that transforms the lives of our members and those we intentionally come in contact with for Christ. This is the Great Commission: “Go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
“Sing! Play! Learn!” The Nellis Baptist Church Nursery is for ages 0-4 years old. The nursery provides a safe environment for the children to learn and grow. In addition to this, the nursery is also charged with teaching your young ones the basics about who Jesus is, and why God loves us!
The Children’s Sunday School department is an integral part of our Sunday School. The Bible itself stresses the importance of the tutelage of young children:
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6With this verse in mind, the Children’s Department has a very clear cut mission statement: Mission Statement: Loving the Church of the Future through reaching, teaching and ministering. With each lesson, the teachers try to teach each student compassionately, teaching child-related truths from the Bible. Each teacher also is involved with the planning and implementation of outreach activities, field trip outings, church events, and community outreach. The goal is to serve both student and parent, and make each student aware of their own personal accomplishments. The Sunday school teachers are not only encouraging their spiritual walk, but also encouraging their growth outside of the church, whether it be in school or at home. Each teacher makes sure to acknowledge their students achievements at school and church alike. Teachers are also available to parents concerning their child’s development in class, as well as any need the child may have. Each class is split up by grade/age group: 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th grade, and 5th grade. Each class has it’s own mini curriculum and goals, geared towards the age group of the students.

Mission Statement: Our mission in the Youth Sunday school department is to reach the lost middle school and high school generation by bringing them to Christ and to disciple all youth by way of bible study and life application; encouraging them to grow in their walk with Christ and to live a life God truly desires The Nellis Youth 4 Christ (NY4C) is geared towards teens 6th-12th grade. The classes are broken down by Middle School and High School ages, and have two teachers per class. Under the leadership of our Youth Director Dexter McDonald, the teachers strive for excellence in growing up the next generation in the ways of the Word. Although the same curriculum is used for both classes, it is modified to be relevant for each group. Each teacher brings their own perspective and real-life experiences to teach the curriculum.
