Children’s House

Welcome to Children’s House, a ministry of Central Baptist Church in Springfield. The Bible teaches us that children are dear to the heart of God. Jesus demonstrated a great love and special care for children. Central Baptist church and the staff of Children’s House feel a deep responsibility to see that every child is treated with respect and dignity, and is nurtured in a positive atmosphere and a safe environment. This is our pledge to the children and to their families. Every child that comes our way is considered a sacred trust. We trust that you provide the same positive nurturing for your child or children at home and we pray that God’s rich blessing will be yours. We invite you and your family to join us for an hour of worship on Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m. (Springfield) and 9:30 a.m. (New Berlin). We have special worship opportunities for children.

Should you have special concerns about your child’s care we encourage you to contact the Children’s House director. However, should other needs or interests arise, please feel free to call the church office staff or any of the ministers of Central Baptist Church. We can be reached at (217)523-3639, and we will be delighted to hear from you.
