Kids Jr and Kids Ministry
Your children are a gift from God – and at Dallas Bible, we want to walk alongside you to ensure you have the care and support needed to raise children who know, love, and enjoy serving God.
Every Sunday, our children’s ministry provides a safe and positive environment where Biblical truth can be absorbed and life-long relationships formed.
Kids Jr Ministry (Birth-PreK)
Children absorb everything and know when they're loved, so we're passionate about starting early to communicate God's perfect love and grace He's made available to all. Our curriculum, Orange, offers creative, engaging lessons aimed at teaching preschoolers that "God Made Me," "God Loves Me," and "Jesus Wants to Be My Friend Forever."
Our goal is to provide a caring, safe, and organized church home for children and their parents. Before entering the DBC Kids hallway, you will be asked to fill out a visitor card, a name tag, and a guardian tag. This is where you provide us with information that is vital to your child’s care (such as allergies, special needs, etc.). This takes only a few minutes and can be done at the any of our check-in kiosks. Our check in team will be there to walk you through the process. When picking up children after worship, parents will need to show their guardian tag before entering the kid's ministry hallway.
Kids Giving Station
We offer a way for kids to learn about tithing and giving back to the Lord! You will find a collection box clearly marked in the welcome area should you wish to have your child give an offering on Sundays when you arrive. You can model this by giving as well and explain the purpose to your children. Visit dallasbible.org/kidsgiving for some ideas to help.
What is Parent/Child Dedication?
Parent/Child Dedication is a special time during a service in which you as a parent make a formal commitment to raise your child in a Christ-centered home. We see several examples in the Bible such as I Samuel 1:24 – 2:10 when Hannah dedicated Samuel at the temple and Luke 2 where Mary and Joseph dedicated Jesus. During the service you will be asked to make a public pledge before the congregation that you will raise your child to know, love and follow Jesus Christ. God designed the home as the primary place for faith to be nurtured. One way that we seek to partner with you is by providing resources throughout your child’s spiritual journey.
The Parent’s Commitment
Parent/Child Dedication is your commitment to model, teach and reinforce the Christian Faith. It should not be confused with your child’s personal choice to follow Christ. We believe the Bible clearly teaches that each person must decide for themselves to trust in Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord (Romans 10:9-10). The age a child is ready to make this personal decision will vary depending on the child.
The Church’s Commitment
Parent/Child Dedication is also a time for the church to commit to walk alongside you as you point your child toward Christ.
When is Parent/Child Dedication?
Parent/Child Dedication is the second Sunday in May and the second Sunday in November (November 14th) at the beginning of the 10:45 am service.

Kids Ministry (K–5th)
Sundays @ 9:00am
Interested in serving in the kids program?
We believe that everyone is given unique spiritual gifts and abilities to help strengthen the church and deepen our relationship with God. There are many ways to invest relationally and help the kids at Dallas Bible learn to love all and help all follow Jesus. No service is too great or too small as we equip our bothers and sisters in Christ to continue the faith.
Available Service Roles:
|Service Coordinator||Are you gifted in administrative areas or love to help coordinate moving parts? This could be an ideal place for you! A service coordinator helps with ensuring that Sunday morning runs smoothly! They will check in with teachers and help make sure that each group has what they need and is following on schedule!|
|Small Group Leader||Connecting and creating a relationship with kids helps show them the relational character of Jesus. Small group leader's main role is to cultivate a relationship with the kids through consistent attendance and fun! The main lesson will be taught by the Large Group Leader, but the small group leader will help the kids engage in the lesson and will walk through prayer requests, follow up questions and activities that supplement the story. Being a small group leader is a unique opportunity to share the gospel and help shepherd young brothers and sisters in Christ.|
|Large Group Leader||Large group leaders get the exciting task of bringing scripture to life and sharing it with the next generation! Engage with kids as you recount stories of God's faithfulness and mercy to us all. We want to point them to the cross each week and show them that each story that we have shows his loving promise of sending Jesus. God gave us his word becase he wants to speak to us. By sharing His stories we can point them to the cross each week.|
|Greeter/Check In||The first impression a student has really sets the tone, and we are looking for positive and welcoming volunteers to help check in and greet our students each week as they come in to be filled by worship.|
|Activity Leader||In addition to songs, bible stories and crafts, the kids will also participate in high energy activities that help with gross motor skills and cooperation! This volunteer role would be wonderful for someone who loves to lead or coach and will be able to oversee a high energy space while still connecting with kids.|
|Music Leader||Kids love to move and sing so we incorporate singing in our large group time to get them prepared to hear the word and learn truths about God. The Music leader gets to be the guide to kids while worshiping, dancing and doing motions to songs. We have a huge library of songs and are excited for you to bring them to life!|
|Substitute||Arent sure you have the capacity in your schedule or arent sure what role you want? We understand that life happens so some volunteers arent able to come. We would love to have some substitues that we can plug in so each child has an amazing experience|
