The children’s ministry of Thaxton Baptist Church exists to glorify God by:

  • Maintaining a safe and secure environment for our children
  • Supporting and encouraging parents who are primarily responsible for teaching biblical truths to their children (Ephesians 6:4) 
  • Making the whole counsel of Scripture known to children with special emphasis on the Gospel (Deuteronomy 6:6-9; Romans 1:16-17)
  • Praying for the children and relying on the Holy Spirit to regenerate their hearts through the faithful teaching of His Word (Romans 10:17; Ephesians 2:4-10)
  • Living faithfully before the children and modeling for them how Christians are called to respond to God, interact with each other, and with the world around us (Matthew 5:16; 1 Corinthians 11:1)
  • Encouraging children to learn to serve and to not just be served (Mark 10:43-45)
  • Maintaining the highest ethical standards such that volunteers always live and serve above reproach, protecting the reputation of the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Preparing children to one day walk with God as adults, which means getting them ready to be a part of the public services and Lord willing, one day, a fully participating adult member

What is Generations of Grace?

Generations of Grace is a biblically based, affordable, unified curriculum for children ages three to eleven designed to be used in multiple settings for the purpose of edifying teachers, evangelizing children and encouraging families.

All of the curriculum is build upon the same key concepts in an expanding spiral that is both developmentally appropriate for each particular age group, yet preparatory for the next curriculum in the progression. During Children's Church the K-th grade group combines for a time of worship, singing, prayer and bible study building upon what they just learned in Sunday School.

Generations of Grace's unique curriculum is:

  • Biblically Driven—covering the Old Testament historical books, the life of Christ, the birth and growth of the church, and lessons from the book of Revelation.
  • God-Centered—magnifying God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture.
  • Christ Exalting—glorifying Christ as the pinnacle of God’s redemptive plan
  • Gospel Saturated—pointing children to Christ as the only way of salvation
  • Family Focused—uniting the family around the same passage of Scripture each Sunday and throughout the week

Generations of Grace is designed to magnify God by studying His character in the pages of Scripture. We can better understand who He is and how we are to respond to Him by studying how His redemptive plan has unfolded and how He has used men to accomplish His purposes. Over a three-year period, this curriculum covers the entire narrative of God's redemptive plan.
