Helping kids discover who God is and His plan for their life.

Our Children’s Ministry partners with parents of children ages birth through 4th grade to teach the Word of God in a nurturing and grace-filled environment. We have wonderfully dedicated teachers who give their time faithfully to teach the kids on a weekly basis. All SBC campuses use the same curriculum, which goes through the Bible from beginning to end over a three-year time period. Parents and children have the opportunity to take home interactive sheets that apply the weekly lesson to everyday life—making it real and personal. In addition to kid-friendly and age-appropriate lessons, the teachers lovingly continue to build on the strong foundation of God’s Word through music, singing, skits, video, and group involvement. Our Cactus kids are seeing God’s Word in action!

Our goal is to give kids and their families valuable support in a loving atmosphere where they can connect with one another in relationships centered on Christ. It is our desire to teach kids and families how to live out God’s Word and make it real in their daily lives as they connect and grow here at Scottsdale Bible.

We want your kids to still receive Bible lessons and encouragement during this time. Click on “Weekend Lessons” below to view a message from your Discovery Kids campus minister, a video Bible lesson, and more. We’re also sharing some great activities you can do as a family to review the week’s lesson.

Child Dedications

On behalf of the Discovery Kids ministry at SBC, we would like to celebrate with you and congratulate you on your little one. We are also very excited that you are interested in doing a formal child dedication. This is a time for parents to publicly commit themselves to raise their children in the instruction and discipline of the Lord, giving opportunities to know God and establish a personal relationship with Christ. It is also a time for family and friends to show their support and intention to help these parents with their commitment to their children. There is no “saving grace” attached to this ceremony; it is simply a statement of intent and desire.

Participants do not need to be church members, but need to be able to answer “yes” to the following questions:

  1. Do you acknowledge your child as a gift from God?
  2. Do you commit yourself to live a godly life before your child so that he or she will have an example to follow?
  3. Do you commit yourself to give your child an opportunity to hear the gospel so that he or she might be able to have a personal relationship with Christ?
  4. Do you commit yourself to raise your child in the instruction and discipline of the Lord?

If you wish to formally dedicate your child, please complete and submit the form below.
