Sunday School Department

Sunday School is a vital part of any church. Aside from the church services and sermons from the pastor, Sunday School offers a great opportunity to continue to learn more about Christ. Nellis Baptist Church offers many classes in which to do this. We offer classes from ages 0-100! We meet every Sunday Morning from 9:45 am- 10:45 am.

Values:

  • We will teach the Bible to transform human lives.
  • Class members will be challenged to develop weekly personal study times.
  • We will seek to build relationships with people outside the class in order to reach them.
  • Intentionally grow our class to the point we must start new classes.
  • Class members will be encouraged to find their place of ministry.
  • Each member will be challenged to have a daily quiet time.
  • All members will be encouraged to attend corporate worship.

Mission Statement:

It is our intent in Sunday School to incorporate the values listed above through the functions of the church as we move forward. We are working toward building a Sunday School Program that transforms the lives of our members and those we intentionally come in contact with for Christ. This is the Great Commission: “Go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Ages 0-4 years old

“Sing! Play! Learn!” The Nellis Baptist Church Nursery is for ages 0-4 years old. The nursery provides a safe environment for the children to learn and grow. In addition to this, the nursery is also charged with teaching your young ones the basics about who Jesus is, and why God loves us!
Our nursery is equipped with all of the amenities required to take care of your child age 0-2 while you are in Sunday School or the church service. In addition, the nursery is also stocked with diapers and wipes should you forget, but please try to remember! In the nursery, the young ones are cared for and nurtured by loving adults who have a heart and passion to teach children. The children play games, sing songs, and are read stories, all with the goal of introducing your child to Christ at a young age.

Children ages 3-4 are separated into a different classroom, so they can learn and grow with kids their own age. The classroom is stocked with supplies to do arts and crafts, as well as toys to keep the children interested when the lesson is over. All the kids in this class are taught lessons that correlate with our Sunday School Curriculum, presented in a way for the young ones to comprehend. Songs, crafts, and other activities are done in this classroom, preparing your child to move on to learn more about who Christ is, and why he loves us!
For any questions regarding our nursery, or if you are a member of the church and are interested in volunteering to help, please call the church office at (702)644-1055, and one of our secretaries will put you in contact with a nursery coordinator.

Children’s Sunday School

The Children’s Sunday School department is an integral part of our Sunday School. The Bible itself stresses the importance of the tutelage of young children:

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

 

With this verse in mind, the Children’s Department has a very clear cut mission statement:

Mission Statement: Loving the Church of the Future through reaching, teaching and ministering.

With each lesson, the teachers try to teach each student compassionately, teaching child-related truths from the Bible. Each teacher also is involved with the planning and implementation of outreach activities, field trip outings, church events, and community outreach. The goal is to serve both student and parent, and make each student aware of their own personal accomplishments. The Sunday school teachers are not only encouraging their spiritual walk, but also encouraging their growth outside of the church, whether it be in school or at home. Each teacher makes sure to acknowledge their students achievements at school and church alike.

Teachers are also available to parents concerning their child’s development in class, as well as any need the child may have.

Each class is split up by grade/age group: 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd and 4th grade, and 5th grade. Each class has it’s own mini curriculum and goals, geared towards the age group of the students.

Youth Ministry

Mission Statement: Our mission in the Youth Sunday school department is to reach the lost middle school and high school generation by bringing them to Christ and to disciple all youth by way of bible study and life application; encouraging them to grow in their walk with Christ and to live a life God truly desires

The Nellis Youth 4 Christ (NY4C) is geared towards teens 6th-12th grade. The classes are broken down by Middle School and High School ages, and have two teachers per class. Under the leadership of our Youth Director Dexter McDonald, the teachers strive for excellence in growing up the next generation in the ways of the Word. Although the same curriculum is used for both classes, it is modified to be relevant for each group. Each teacher brings their own perspective and real-life experiences to teach the curriculum.

This class is geared towards helping the students adjust to the changes that middle school can bring, as well as preparing the students for high school.[/toggle]
“You are a member of God’s own family…and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian” – Ephesians 2:19.

The purpose of The NY4C High School Classes are to help youth in grades 9-12 become healthy and productive members of Nellis Baptist Church, to show them ways that they can grow in Christ, and also to expose them to the various ministry, mission and worship opportunities.
