Children are important to us at Five Forks Baptist Church. It is our desire to see each child receive Jesus Christ as his or her personal savior and to grow in his or her relationship with Christ. It is also our desire to provide a safe environment for each child within our care. We are pleased to offer Kid Check as our check-in software system. Also, Shepherd’s Watch background checks are required for all leaders and volunteers. Thank you for entrusting us with your child!

Each of the curriculums used during Kids Church are designed to help kids connect God’s Word to their lives in an intentional way.

kids worship program fiveforks baptist church simpsonville sc


Kids Church is offered to all children K3 through 5th grade each Sunday morning during the 10:30am worship service. It is a year round program and in order to provide a more age appropriate experience, kids are divided into three separate classes.

For those in K3-K4 and those in Kindergarten – 2nd grade, each week is divided into times of singing, learning Bible verses, snack, games, Bible story, and crafts. There is a focus on worship through the use of the DVD curriculum, “Worship for Life” by Lifeway. We combine this with the Lifeway curriculum, “Bible Studies for Life.”

FLYTE: 3rd-5th Grade

Our 3rd -5th graders join the adults in the worship service for singing and are then brought to the classroom for a preteen lesson through the use of a curriculum called, “FLYTE.” This stands for Faith, Life, Together and is also put out by Lifeway. In order to ease the transition from elementary to middle school, the 3rd-5th graders sit together as a group throughout the entire morning worship service on the first Sunday of every month. The group sits in front of the youth group in order to establish relationships with the youth and youth pastor. Through an effort to partner with parents, this class is primarily parent led.

Fishstix: 6th-12th Grade

In conjunction with Kids C.A.N., Fishstix is offered to 6th-12th graders. Practices are Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30pm. This ministry is modeled after the work of Salt and Light ministries, whose goal is to, “encourage the body of believers by bringing the Word of God to life.” This ministry uses dowel rod sticks to interpret contemporary worship songs and hymns. The Fishstix team performs with the Kids C.A.N. group at Christmas, Easter, and other special occasions.

Special emphasis is put on sharing the gospel of Christ through the art form and using our talents to honor Christ. For more information or to join the Fishstix team contact Jenny Madak.
