briarlake kids

Briarlake Church offers great programs for children from babies to 5th graders. 

The Briarlake Kids Check-in Desk is on the bottom floor of C Building.

The first time you check-in, you will be asked to fill out an information card for your child. When the card is completed, a check-in volunteer will enter it into our system and the computer will print a security label. Please place the label on your child and use the receipt to pick up your child. All of our teachers have completed a background screening.

Babies to kindergarten

Sunday Mornings

The Greenhouse (9:45am - 12:15pm) is a loving and safe place where babies, toddlers and preschoolers begin to learn about God and His love. Caring teachers and volunteers are here every Sunday to engage our littlest ones with fun, purposeful activities to help them begin to learn about who God is. Our classes are divided by age and stage of development.

Life Group Kids From 9:45am - 10:45am. 

Kids Extended Session from 10:45am - 12:00pm.

During both groups loving teachers are there welcoming your child and getting to know him or her as they teach Bible stories, make crafts, and have fun. In addition to our small group classes 3-5 year olds will attend a short preschool worship time in the Greenhouse large group room at 11:15am.

On your first Sunday, come to the check in station in The Greenhouse hallway (downstairs in C building) where all children are checked in (babies - 5th graders). Our check-in system will generate a label and code for each child. Then one of our volunteers will take you to your child's room and introduce you to the teachers. Place the label on your child's back and keep the code until you pick up your child.

When you pick up your child, present your label to your child's teacher. If you do not have your label for pick up, it may be necessary for you to show your identification to the teacher.

For more information, please contact our preschool ministry director, Peggy Fiskum at (or use the email link to the right).

1st to 5th graders

Studio One (Sunday Mornings)

On Sunday mornings at 9:45am, 1st through 5th graders learn a Bible story and understand how the lesson can be applied to their daily lives. Kids attend an interactive large group time in a small theater room with music and drama. The Bible story, main point and Bible verse are introduced during this time, and kids learn how each one applies to their daily lives. Later each grade will move to a small group in another room nearby where they will complete activities related to the Bible story, memory verse and main point.

On your first Sunday, come to the check in station in the Greenhouse hallway (downstairs in C building) where all kids are checked in (babies - 5th graders). Our system will generate one label for each child in 1st - 5th grade. Then one of our volunteers will direct you to the Studio One hallway, upstairs in C building, and will point out your child's small group room. Studio One begins at 9:45am.

A Kids Worship service is also held Sundays at 11:00 AM in Studio One during the school year. During this time, children in grades 1-5 are invited to worship through music, skits, games and Bible lessons.

If you have questions or comments about Studio One, contact the Church office.

music together of decatur

Join Music Together of Decatur for singing, dancing, instrument-playing, and a whole lot of fun on Briarlake's ballfield this fall! The only thing we'll share with the babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and grownups is our love for making music together, so grab whatever you have around your home to shake, tap, rattle, and drum! Bring a blanket for your family to sit on and to provide a clear visual boundary for social distancing while we sing, dance, and jam together-- 6 ft apart. Register for a music class on Tuesday or Friday morning by clicking the picture to the left or contact Wedny via texts or calls at (678) 466-0737 or by email at
