Sandia Baptist Church

Preschool & Children

It is a great privilege to partner with you and your family. Our goal is to equip families to become fully devoted followers of Christ. We offer truthful, applicable Bible instruction, fun fellowship opportunities, exciting praise and worship, and several large events throughout the year for families to be involved and connect with a community to support and encourage each other. Raising children in our world today can be overwhelming and Sandia Baptist Church is here to help. Please check out our ministry opportunities for children of all ages and let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!

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.

When you come to Sandia, our volunteers at the Welcome Center or our signs will direct you to our Children’s Wing where you will find our check-in station. Our helpful team will ask you to relay some brief information about your family, and will be available to answer any questions. Upon check-in, you will receive a security tag which matches your child’s tag for children ages birth – 5 years of age. When service concludes, you can pick up your child at their class by presenting your tag. No child is released unless the matching tag is presented.

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, including small groups, children are exposed to God’s word and challenged to grow in their relationship with God. All our workers are required to have a clear background check and attend some training classes.

Vacation Bible School

August 3-7, 2020
We are working on a new vision for
what VBS will look like this year...


Every year we transform our entire campus to take your kids on a week-long adventure exploring God's truth and promises. Monday - Friday from 9 am-noon your children ages 4 through 6th grade will connect with their crew of friends and rotate from station to station to sing, play games, make a craft, have a snack, and hear a lesson from the Bible. The theme is brand new every year and our registration opens on May 1. This promises to be 100% fun and is 100% FREE, but you must register!


Summer Camp

The camps we normally attend have been cancelled this summer. We plan to attend in 2021.

Summer Camp

S'mores, singalongs, and soccer are all summer camp staples and play a role in some of our most cherished memories from summer camps. Attending a Christian summer camp encourages spiritual growth through a Bible-centered environment, allowing children to focus on their relationship with God and fellow Christians. Sandia Baptist Church takes a group to two summer camps each year for kids who have completed 3rd-6th grade.
