Briarwood’s Children’s Ministry desires to partner with parents to lead children to a saving, growing relationship with Christ by presenting the gospel, training children to worship, and equipping them to impact others for God’s glory.


Our desire is to be relationally connected to each family and to provide an atmosphere where every child feels loved, valued, respected, accepted, cared for and safe. We will pursue an environment where every parent is confident concerning the well-being of their child while participating in the life of the church.

Our teaching, curriculum, and programs will be Christ-centered and taught from a Biblical worldview perspective. We will accomplish this in a fun-filled way utilizing creative teaching styles.

Our desire is to point our covenant children to an intimate relationship with Christ, whereby they want to follow God’s will instead of their own, and know there is no greater joy than being in the center of God’s will. Our staff and leaders will point them to God’s Truth by studying God’s Word, memorizing Scripture, praying for them and with them and praying for their families as well.

The Children’s Ministry Team can’t wait to see you and your children as we reopen for CONNECT (Grades K4–3) and IGNITE (Grades 4–6) on January 13. We have updated our safety protocols to help us be more effective in protecting you and your children, our volunteers and staff. Here is what you need to know as you prepare for your return:

1. Continuing Wednesday January 13 and January 20, 2021, a number of our Congregational Communities will have the opportunity to meet on a bi-weekly basis with child-care provided through our Nursery and exciting activities provided by our CONNECT and IGNITE Children’s Ministries. The Congregational Communities that meet on Wednesday nights have been assigned to meet bi-weekly and aligned to take advantage of our nursery and Children’s Ministries. Congregational Communities have already received communication about which night they are assigned to meet (those without Nursery or Children Ministry age children are meeting on Tuesday or Thursday nights). If you have further questions, please reach out to your Community Pastor or contact Ray Tucker at

2. Please click here to read the Children’s Parental Protocol Agreement Form (members and non-members). Parents will need to check the box that you have read the form and agree with it to bring your children. Even if you have already signed the Nursery Parental Protocol Agreement Form for the nursery, please make sure you read and sign the Children’s Parental Protocol Agreement Form, as it has important details about CONNECT and IGNITE and drop off and pick up. Additionally, all non-members need to read, print out, sign and bring with them the Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement (There will be copies at the check in stations also).

3. Remember, if you have Nursery age kids please make reservations for them at
