Safe at Central

Central Baptist’s children’s wing has had some recent upgrades, including new safety doors, a check-in area, and a guest welcome center. Our safety doors are locked after the set check-in times.

Sunday Check-In Times: 9:15-9:45, 10:30-11:00

Three Step Check-In Process:

  1. Check in at the kiosk
  2. Print 3 tags (Parents get 1, Kids get 2)
  3. Go to Class! Ages 2 and under will be escorted to class by parents; ages 3 and up will show their tag to a safety volunteer and walk to class (*Please see a volunteer if you’d like to walk an older child to class. We prefer tearless drop offs for all!)

Pick-up Process:

  1. Babies to Age 2: Parents will show tag and walk to child’s classroom
  2. Ages 3 to Kindergarten: Child will be seated in hall and walked out of safety doors to parents
  3. 1st-5th Grade: Children will be dismissed to exit and meet their parents outside the safety doors

A volunteer will be available to help at all times if you arrive late or need to leave early.

If you would like to be a part of this amazing team and help serve at Central, volunteer! We need greeters and safety volunteers. It’s an easy thirty minutes, once a month. You won’t even miss small group!

How to Present the Gospel

You can explain the gospel to someone using these two verses and a simple drawing:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”  Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 3:23


The person on the left box represents me/you/anybody. God is over on the other side. (Draw God on top of the box on the right)

Write these words in the left box as you talk about them:

Wages: what you earn. When your parents go to work they earn wages, it’s what they earn for the job they do.

Sin: using Romans 6:23 we learned that everyone sins, right? Well, if we were paid what we deserve for our sin, it would be death. (Sin is anything that goes against God.)   It’s not sounding very good right now, and we’re still separated from God. Here’s the good part—but. (write “but” in the gap between the boxes). Here’s where the story gets better!

Now in the box on the right, write the underlined words:

Gift: What does it cost you when someone gives you a gift? Nothing! It’s a gift. God loves you so much that he gave you a gift. That gift is eternal life. Christ Jesus made that gift possible when he died on the cross and made it possible to have our sins forgiven (draw cross with “Christ Jesus” that bridges the gap between the left and right boxes). When we “trust” (write trust on the top of the cross) Jesus we ask forgiveness of our sins and ask him be in our lives, we won’t be separated from God.

Now tell YOUR story!  You can tell the person what your life was like before you knew Jesus, and how it is different now that you have made him #1 in your life! Ask them if they would like to pray and ask Jesus for forgiveness of their sin, and to let him be #1 in their life.
