Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry at First Baptist Church exists to partner with families in an effort to expand their child’s understanding of Christ and his gospel.  Below are a few opportunities for your children to connect with our church as we seek to fulfill this mission:

Sunday Mornings:

Children’s Sunday School meets from 9:15 – 10:15am every Sunday morning. This is a key time for children from Kindergarten – 6th grade to participate in small group Bible Study. Our teachers love God and they make the most of the opportunity they have to share God’s Word with your children. Youth, 7th-12th grade, meet for Bible Study downstairs in the youth room at this time.

The nursery will be open during the Sunday School hour for children birth – 4 years old.

Our worship gathering is at 10:30am.  There is a nursery for children birth – 4 years old. Children 5 years and older are encouraged to get a workbook from the wing near the stage before the service begins.

Wednesday Evenings:

Awana Clubs serve children ages 3 years – 6th grade.  They meet every Wednesday night 6:30 – 8:00pm from September – May.  There is a dinner provided at 6:00pm for children in the Awana program. The 2023-2024 Awana year begins on Wednesday, September 13th.

Vacation Bible School:

Every year in July, First Baptist Church hosts its annual Vacation Bible School.  We offer teaching, crafts, snacks, games, missions and music all centered around one biblical theme.  With focused attention given to every age group, we welcome all children entering Kindergarten – completing 5th grade.

Check-in Procedures: 

All children from birth through kindergarten must be properly checked in with their designated teacher.  A nursery volunteer will check children in on the computer or on the attendance sheet in the nursery common room.  In addition to faithfully teaching your children, our objective is to rightly care for the physical well-being of your child.   For more information about our child protection policy, please click HERE.
