Get Connected With BVBC

Soon after your first visit to Bow Valley Baptist, you will hear about our Small Groups. These are smaller communities of people who gather to connect with God and with each other. All of our groups are different. Most meet during the week, however, there are some that meet Sunday mornings.  We also have Small Groups for youth and children.

As soon as you hang out with us for a short time, you will find that most weeks are full of other opportunities for our people to serve, grow, and connect.

God intends for us to have an abundant and joyful life so we value being together and have a great time while we gather. Throughout the year, we plan a variety of events intended to help us all on our journey with Christ and each other.

… Igniting Vibrant Faith

The Children’s Ministry at Bow Valley exists to support parents and to provide environments where children can encounter God and learn His Word.  We believe that every child is made in God’s image and that God has a special place in His Big Story just for them. Our prayer is that God will develop in them a heart that longs to know Christ, to follow Him, and to make Him known.

During our weekly worship service we offer age appropriate opportunities for our children and preschoolers to learn, worship, and play.

Kids Church

K – Grade 6

Children are dismissed after the singing portion of the worship service and can be picked up downstairs after the service.

Offered every Sunday except for the last Sunday of the month

Kid’s Worship Folders are available for children ages Kindergarten through Grade 6 in the foyer.  On Sundays when there is no Kid’s Church, children are invited to draw a picture of something mentioned in the sermon.  After the service, children can take their picture to Debbie or LeAnne in the Hebrews area to receive a small treat after the service.
