DISCOVERY LAND (Birth - Kindergarten)

We strive to make your kids feel safe, secure and invited from the moment they arrive until they go back home.  When they are here, your kids will travel through a morning filled with creative play, story time and worship music.  We aim to equip your kids with the knowledge of who Jesus is and the freedom to find out more about Him in the Bible as they are preparing to take off to the Elementary room for their school age years.  We seek to teach kids:

3 Basic Truths:

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever

THE BOARDWALK (Elementary Age)

We are so excited at the idea of partnering together with you as parents in helping your kids experience a life rooted in Jesus, which is a far better life that they could ever experience on their own.  Bay Farm Church is driven by the notion that every child of the east bay would be a Jesus-follower, and we see our part as constantly teaching the kids:

3 core truths:

  • I need to make the wise choice
  • I can trust God no matter what
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated
