Children's Ministry

The Children’s Ministry of Shelbyville Mills Baptist Church exists to glorify God by teaching children the Word of God, evangelizing them, and encouraging and equipping parents to bring up their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. We seek to accomplish our mission through:

  • Sunday morning Small Group Classes for each school grade and every age of preschool
  • Wednesday night “Faith Fighters” (Fighter Verses)
  • Vacation Bible School (Answers VBS)
  • Summer Activities (Calendar)


Staffed by our youth director and fully equipped leadership team, our ministry is dedicated to helping students in grades 7-12 grow in the likeness of Christ. We accomplish this with a variety of activities, such as:

  • Sunday Small Groups for each school grade
  • Wednesday Night Youth Worship Services that involve food, activities, and Bible study in their own Youth Fellowship Room
  • Youth Camp each summer
  • Mission opportunities both with the church-at-large and specifically for youth
  • Many other youth activities throughout the year

College & Career

The goal of the College & Career department at Shelbyville Mills Baptist Church is to develop within each student a personal faith and a deeper love for God, by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is vital that as a student begins his or her own career, they deepen their own personal faith and love for God. As personal faith grows, we will make disciples of Jesus Christ while dealing with the issues of college and future career.  We accomplish these goals through the following activities:

  • Sunday Morning Small Group Bible Study
  • Wednesday devotional with a focus on current issues, struggles, or questions
  • Counsel on stewardship and budgeting/finance
  • Activities throughout the year to encourage fellowship and personal growth
  • Focus upon discipleship and ministry to others

Small Groups

The Church is organized into Small Groups to evangelize the lost, equip the saved, and provide fellowship to meet individual needs. Our Small Groups meet every Sunday Morning at 9:00am.

Classes are offered for preschool, children, youth, college and career, women, and men.
