Children & Youth Ministries

At Warwick Central Baptist Church, our Children’s and Youth Ministry Mission is to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ through creative classroom study, and intentional modeling of the Christian faith. We lead the children through age appropriate lessons toward accepting Jesus as their personal savior. We seek to engage and prepare our children and youth for baptism, and full participation in our church life.


Infant/Children Dedications – we dedicate, in thanksgiving, our children and their parents to the Lord, and the congregation to the care and support of the family.

Infant Nursery Care – located in the Larie Phillips Nursery (down stairs). Child and infant care is available from 9am to 11:30am on Sundays and other special occasions. Professional staff will safe guard our infants and young children in a cheery and clean space set aside just for them

Sunday School  – is held during the later portion of the 10:15 am service for the children K through 5th grades. Jr. church is led by parent volunteers on a monthly rotation schedule. The lessons come from Parents are welcome to attend with the children at any time. The goal of the Jr. Church program is to engage the child in age appropriate worship, as a “primer” for attending church as a youth/adult.
