Children's Mission Groups
Missions is important at South Tulsa Baptist Church, and we believe that teaching our children to develop a love for God and all the people of the world is vitally important. Children’s missions classes meet each Wednesday night from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. during the school year.
All for You is our theme this year. Children in Mission Friends (boys and girls age 3-K), Royal Ambassadors (boys 1st-6th grade) and Girls in Action (girls 1st-6th grade) will learn to love and serve God through missions – not partially or halfheartedly, but with their full and focused hearts and minds. Our missions stories will highlight dedicated servants of God who are surrendering to God’s leadership on the missions field. Our activities and hands-on experiences will train the children how to pray for missions, give to missions, and do missions in their own communities.
We are always looking for new leaders. Please contact the church office, 918-299-0904, or click here to e-mail Kim, if you would like to help.
From age three to kindergartners, Mission Friends® provides the building blocks of faith and a basic awareness of God’s love for all people. Preschoolers become aware of God’s love, and they learn that others need to hear about this good news! They are involved in learning, praying, giving, and doing missions. Preschoolers learn of missions work in North America and throughout the world. Mission Friends will need three leaders in each class. We hope to have a 3s class, 4s class, and 5s class for our preschoolers.
Girls in Action (GA)

Royal Ambassadors (RAs)
Royal Ambassadors (RAs) is a Southern Baptist mission education organization for boys in grades 1-6. RAs provides an opportunity for boys to develop Christian character through missions involvement and virtue commitments, in addition to growing spiritually, physically, mentally, and in relationships with others. Royal Ambassadors leaders utilize activities that are designed to help boys learn about God’s mission, participate in on-mission experiences, pray for and give to missions, develop and use mission skills, and learn about and support the missions work of their church and denomination.
Royal Ambassadors provides boys with the opportunity to be a part of the greatest adventure on earth: joining God in His mission of reconciling people unto Himself through His Son, Jesus Christ. Royal Ambassadors needs men who are willing to lead boys in being on mission with God and to teach them how they can serve as ambassadors for Christ.
