Children's church

Athol Baptist believes that children are not the church of the future, but they are the church of today.
Our goal is to educate children in all the major Bible stories of the Bible, also to make sure they understand who Christ is and what He did for them.  We also place a large emphasis on the child’s place in the home and what God expects of them in their family.
Our goal is that every child has a firm foundation of the scriptures before leaving the children’s ministry.

The Safety of your children is of the utmost importance to our church.
  • Check-in and Check-out procedures.
  • Every volunteer is background checked and has received Child Supervision training.

DROP POINT


What is Drop Point Ministries (DPM)? Drop point is a word used to describe a certain type of Bushcraft knife. Of the tools that any person practicing Bushcraft holds dear none is more valuable than their knife. Useful in almost every situation and absolutely essential to the success of any expedition. It is the desire of Drop Point Ministries to transform young men and boys into essential instruments for the cause of Christ.
To accomplish this it is the goal of DPM to utilize a dynamic and engaging wilderness/ bushcraft program that focuses on character building and wilderness skills. DPM will combine the teaching of Bushcraft Skills and Biblical principles to create Christian Boldness in the Hearts and Minds of the Tribesmen involved.
One thing that DPM noticed in other programs that have a wilderness focus is that there was a large emphasis on badge work, paperwork and a great deal of checking boxes to earn achievement. Although there is a merit process in DPM, it is not the goal of DPM to provide a series of boxes for Tribesmen to check in order to progress through the program. DPM desires to strip this process down to the fundamental essentials of biblically building Christian boldness in Tribesmen.

LOV3 is a name that represents the idea of Love Cubed. It focuses on three key traits which are Virtue, Valor and Victory. LOV3 is a program that is intended to put the young women in its care in positions to not only learn about values needed to be strong Christian women but also instill in them practical skills to help instill confidence and strength within them.
Purpose– To encourage young ladies to develop a heart that follows after God by learning about Christian character focusing on three key ideas which are Virtue, Valor and Victory.
Mission– Our theme is Christian Character drawn from biblical concepts found in Proverbs 31 and verses pertaining to the Fruit of the Spirit. We believe that a wise woman with Virtue and Valor needs to be equipped to face the many challenges in our world with Spiritual fruit as her guide giving her Victory in the eyes of God.
 
This will be accomplished through lessons on character traits coupled with activities to build those traits in the girls through active learning. To accomplish this active learning there will be lessons and activities in a variety of practical life skills and challenging physical skills, pooling resources from our community of believers and the leaders of the LOV3 program.
Vision– Ultimately we at LOV3 desire to produce young women that will enter into their communities unafraid to represent Virtue with Valor obtaining Victory for the cause of Christ in all of their endeavors.
