Nurturing Faith


Giving Back to the Community

Our faith formation groups provide a place of belonging for those seeking to grow and discover their faith through Christ. Each group is supportive, engaging, and will help encourage you to practice your gifts and grow your skills in order to serve others. We believe that faith groups help shape us and our faith through Bible study. This allows us to serve others through church outreach efforts, and through our everyday lives in the workplace, school, with our neighbors, and in volunteer organizations.

Organized efforts might include collecting school supplies, tutoring elementary-age children, interacting with passengers at the bus depot, supporting patients and staff at the hospital, supplying local food pantries, and visiting people in senior care centers.

Our youth group is designed to engage and challenge students to grow and develop their skills and their faith in Christ, while also reaching out and becoming active members of the community.

Our youth Bible study is a time to gather both for fun and study. We laugh and get  to know each other better while spending time in Bible study around relevant topics
for students. Our Bible study focuses on encouraging students to see the intersection of life and faith – sharing questions and doubts while being challenged to live as faithful disciples of Christ in all areas of life. We are an open group. Friends welcome!

Additional Nurturing

Ardmore Baptist Preschool

Ardmore Baptist Church is proud to offer our weekday preschool program. We have a wonderful reputation for serving families of our church and community since 1948. We offer a Christ-centered, developmentally appropriate program for children 3 months to 5 years old.

We believe children learn through play. Your child will learn all about Jesus’ love for them through lots of hands-on learning. Children will explore through music, art, literature, sensory play centers, outside play, snack, and circle time. We also have chapel, Spanish, and Musicare each week.

You can rest assured your child will be in great hands being cared for by our loving, qualified staff!

Our calendar closely follows the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools calendar in regards to breaks. Preschool is Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. with an optional “Lunch Bunch” most days from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. for children starting in the twos class. You have the option of choosing 2-5 days a week for your child to attend.
