Is there a “Sunday Morning Bible Study Class” for me?
Yes...we have several Bible Study classes available at 9:15 a.m on Sundays. They are grouped by age and/or life stage but we can help you find a class where you will fit right in!
Where will my kids go during worship?
At Bullard Southern, we encourage the importance of family worship time. Therefore, for children over four years of age, we support them attending the worship service with their family. We conduct biannual preschool promotions for our young ones on or around September 1st and March 1st. At the promotion date following a child’s fourth birthday, we have a recognition time during our worship service, introducing them to “big church” and provide them with a “Big Church Bag” filled with items to help them transition into a new learning and worship environment.
Bullard Southern also provides safe and loving nursery and toddler care during all worship services. Children up to age four are assigned to preschool rooms based on their date of birth.
What is Bible Study like for my children?
Babies through two year olds remain in our nurturing nursery and toddler care during Bible Study Time.
Our Bible Study classes begin with our two year old class and continues through our sixth graders. We are proud of our team of dedicated teachers who make children’s Bible Study fun and engaging.

What is a Southern Baptist Church?
A brief history of Southern Baptist churches includes the following:
In 1845 a group of Baptist churches met in Augusta, Georgia, and agreed to begin cooperating together to do missions work around the world. From there the denomination began and grew. Today there are over 16 million Southern Baptists and some 42,000 churches. The denomination exists so that churches can cooperate together to do missions work on a local, state, national and international level. The main way that Southern Baptists work cooperatively is by giving money to the Cooperative Program. The Cooperative Program funds many ministries around the world, including the following:
• The six Southern Baptist seminaries for theological training of church leaders
• The North American Mission Board (NAMB) for mission work in the United States and Canada
• The International Mission Board (IMB) for mission work around the world
Bullard Southern also cooperates with churches on a local level to do work in Smith and Cherokee County through the Smith Baptist Association and we cooperate with other churches through our Texas Southern Baptist Conventions to do work within our state.
