preschool & children

At Sandia Baptist Church, children learn the truth about who God is and who they are because of Him. Our goal is to

partner with parents to see children come to know Christ personally, and grow spiritually. 

Our Preschool & Children's ministries are staffed with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and fun environment for your child. From babies through 6th graders, Sandia KIDZ offers a place where children can discover and develop a passion for God. Through worship, teaching, and a variety of fun activities, your children will be encouraged to grow in their relationship with God.
