Kids in Children's Church Kids in Children's Church

The Gospel Project takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that changes everything.

Child Protective Training

Sequoia has many programs that serve children and youth. Ministry programs such as Sunday School, Children's church, TeamKids and others help to develop each child’s intellectual, social, spiritual or physical capacity. As they serve, ministry leaders cannot forget their responsibility to safeguard each child, as well as those who serve them. Church members need to be guaranteed that Sequoia's preschool, children’s ministry and their youth programs are safe. Because of the trust that Sequoia has put in every single children's worker, it is MANDATORY for each potential worker to fill out a Volunteer Interest Application, to be trained in a Child Protective Training program, have a background check, and be fingerprinted. This is not optional and is required for every worker no matter how often or where they serve. The first step is to click here and fill out the Volunteer Interest Application, print it and turn it in to the office at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church. The next step is to watch the videos and completion form. These videos are password protected and available here. The password will be given by the church office to aproved candidates. Each candidate must watch all 10 videos, then fill out the form on line and submit it to the office by clicking the submit button at the bottom.
