"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when
he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6


Kidtown is the children's ministry of Midtown Baptist Temple for children newborn to 5th grade. At each of our services, we have the privilege of caring for, loving on, and teaching our little ones all about Jesus. Kidtown believes children are a blessing from the Lord and we are passionate about creating a safe, fun environment where they can grow in their relationship with Christ. Each Kidtown classroom is kid-friendly, age-appropriate and staffed by workers* who love the Lord and our little ones. Classrooms are divided by age and each engages in a time of praise, prayer and interactive lessons designed to engage the hearts and minds of children while teaching them biblical truth.

Children's ministry is way more than childcare! In Kidtown, we believe that effective children's ministry is the beginning stages of discipleship and treat it as the eternal investment of God's truth into little hearts and minds. This is no less important than what goes on in all of the other areas of the church.

Core Values

Bible-Based: All teaching, activities and decisions must have merit Biblically.

Prayer-Powered: All teaching, activities and decisions should be anointed and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Christ-Centered: Teaching, decisions and activities should promote the understanding that Christ, not ourselves, is the center of what we do.

Intentionally-Integrated: All ministries, activities and decisions should promote, or at least not interfere with, the purposeful integration of children and adults within the MBT body.

Family-Focused: Communication, teaching and activities should actively encourage and support strong Christian families and parental involvement in their children’s spiritual development.

Fun-Filled: Creative and fun ways to teach and reinforce the Word of God should be the norm.
