The Bible says in Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” There are many ministries in which you can serve the Lord and others at Canaan Baptist Church.
Our nurseries provide a clean and safe environment to help care for your children. Volunteers who work with the children are carefully interviewed, screened, and trained. Parents can have peace of mind while they attend one of the adult Bible study fellowships or the worship services. Nursery is provided for newborns through three years old for all services.
Our children look forward to Sunday and we are certain your children will too. Our children’s ministry is full of excitement, fun and most of all great teaching from God’s Word. Each week we minister to more than one hundred children throughout our Sunday school, Jr. Church and children’s ministries.
During the morning service we offer a graded Sunday school program with most classes having between 10-15 students in them. This allows our teachers to have a greater impact on the individual students. Our dedicated teachers pray for their students on a weekly basis and prepare lessons that are specifically geared for the age group they are teaching.
King’s Kids: We believe that the best time to start training children is at the most tender of ages. For children ages three through sixth grade we offer weekly Bible training on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm. Bible memorization, awards, game time, and music participation make up each Wednesday evening of fun and fellowship.
The high school years are an important time of transition as children are becoming young adults. It is during these years that they begin to establish what kind of person they are going to be. At Canaan, the goal is to help these young people cultivate a close walk with God and equip them to know Him personally.
Every aspect of the youth ministry is done with the purpose of strengthening their relationships with God, their parents, authorities and peers.
Although teens love to have fun, it is important to balance that fun with an emphasis on God’s Word. We want to provide them with a friendly environment that is both exciting and helpful in order to help them grow.
Canaan Baptist is a family! The adult small groups are smaller families within that family. Because you are important to God, it is important to us that you find the group that is a perfect fit for you. In these small groups, you will connect with others like yourself for Bible studies, friendships, and activities. Regardless of your age or background, there is a class for you, and every group has a seat available and waiting for you!
Through the ministries of Canaan Baptist Church seniors will find meaningful friendships, enjoyable activities, and a network of care where you can continue to grow in your faith.
The ladies of Canaan enjoy Canaan Women’s Fellowship meetings together throughout the year to plan activities and to minister to the needs of the church family and others. This group provides a wonderful place of service and encouragement among Christian ladies. Not only do they have fun themes and gatherings, but they also furnish a source of spiritual strengthening.
The music ministry of Canaan Baptist Church is traditional and hymn-based without sacrificing excitement, energy and excellence. We rest securely on the foundational truth that, when it comes to church music, God is the audience. It is about Him, not us! This drives each part of the music service.
Rather than conforming to the trends of modern music and its unapologetic appeal to the flesh and emotions, we choose to base our music on songs that cause participants to think great thoughts about God. We believe that creating opportunities for individuals to worship God in truth will help them to grow in the knowledge of our Savior in a way that purely emotional experiences have never been able to accomplish. Emotions are greater and purer when they are the result of truth.
The Bus Ministry at Canaan Baptist Church brings children of all ages to our exciting Bible Study and Junior Church. Children first grade and older are welcome to ride the bus unless accompanied by a guardian.
A bus will stop in front of your house or apartment and a trained worker will escort your child to and from the bus. The time on the bus is filled with fun, singing and games—all with adult supervision.
Adults needing transportation also are welcomed to ride the bus to and from church. An experienced and licensed CDL driver is on each bus. An adult bus captain and other workers are also on board each bus. If you would like your children to ride the bus or if you need to ride, please call the church at 770.786.8885.
Supporting Missionaries is a big part of Canaan Baptist Church. We support Missionaries all around the world.
