Welcome to Children's Ministry!
DBC's Children's Ministry is a place where children learn to Love God in an intimate and personal way, to Love People, as God has called us to do! It's a place where we Make Disciples as we grow in our knowledge and love for Jesus, and where we strive to always Make a Difference in our homes, church, community and the world.
We nurture this movement as we:
- Impact the children of our community with the message of Christ's love for them
- Facilitate growth in their relationship with Jesus Christ and His Word
- Prepare children to discover their uniqueness and eventually God's mission and purpose for their lives
At DBC, nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of your children. That’s why we’ve chosen KidCheck to bring you the best experience at check-in and to provide you as parents the ability to act as a team with us to keep them in safe hands.
Signing up for KidCheck is easy and free. Once you've created your KidCheck account, you can add your kids and other guardians. You can also upload photos of yourself, your kids and your guardians to make it easy for your childcare provider to identify them.
When you go to check in for the first time at DBC, use your 10-digit home or cell phone number associated with your account. If you desire to make changes you may go into your account page at anytime and make changes by selecting the “Login” link on the KidCheck website.
Wednesday Night Activities
From August 2019 through May 2020 we will be using a new children's choir curriculum called Growing in Grace. Children will focus on learning music, worship preparation and drama opportunities.

All activities are from 6-7 pm with an option to stay until 7:30 pm.

Where: Rally Room
One of the first Legacy Milestones in your family’s life is the birth of a child and their dedication to the Lord. DBC’s Parent/Child Dedication ceremony is a commitment ceremony for parents and for our church family. It is recognition of your solemn responsibility to raise your child in a Christian home and a church where he or she may come to know Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior. This ceremony is not infant baptism. We do not offer baptism prior to a person’s choosing to believe in Christ.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6
You do not need to be a member of Dunwoody Baptist Church to have your child dedicated, however we do ask that parents are regular attendees. Why? In dedicating your child to God, you are stating that you are willing to partner with God and the church to raise your child in cooperation with God's intentions. To partner with any church, a parent would be wise to decide if he or she agrees with its beliefs and vision, so they can be all-in in their partnership with the church.
Our next Parent/Child Dedication Service:
Sunday, September 22
You may choose either 8:30 am or 11:00 am.
New Beginnings Baptism Class
The New Beginning Class is for children as they begin their faith journey. Recommended for children in grades 2-5, the class is held during the 9:45 am Bible study hour and at least one parent must attend with their child.
During this class, we will discuss what baptism is, who partakes in communion, how you really follow Christ, and what it means to be a disciple. We tour the baptistery so that they will feel comfortable and knowledgeable about what takes place the day of their baptism ceremony. A child-appropriate workbook is provided and is to be completed as a family at home. There is also a 30-day reading plan through the Gospel of Luke.
10:15 - 11:00 am in the Kid’s Place Rally Room.
Please contact Ms. Bridgette if you have any questions or would like to schedule a baptism.
As a reminder, DBC live streams our services online, and a recording is available via the church’s website, the DBC app, and social media. If you have family or friends that are unable to witness your baptism in person, this is an option for them. If you have concerns about your baptism being shared in these venues, please let me know in advance of your baptism day.
