Children

At First Baptist, we are committed to following Jesus’ example by welcoming children into our church family. During a child’s infancy, we covenant with parents to be partners with them in nurturing their child and in helping them grow to know and love Jesus as friend, Savior and Lord. Our varied programs for children are directed toward that end.

Upcoming Events in our Children’s Ministry 

Advent To-Go

Durning the month of November, you can pick up your “Family Advent To-Go” outside the Children’s wing. The kit includes five weeks of family devotions that explore the theme of light and darkness, an Advent calendar with simple, daily activities, and a Christmas Shadow Box Theater to act out the story of Christmas using light and shadows. We know families are busy, so we’ve made it simple to still celebrate Advent together as a family. Watch the video below to learn more! 

 
We’ve been learning about Lesley-Ann Hix Tommey, CBF Field Personnel, and her work at Metro Baptist Church in NYC! Last week, we FaceTimed her and she let us know they needed items for “snack bags” to pass out to hungry neighbors. Our kids will be decorating lunch bags and creating notes to send with the snacks. We will also be sending some of the donations to our local Interactive Resource Center.
Through the month of November, we are collecting individual size Cereal Bars, “Pop top” Vienna Sausage, Crackers, Applesauce, Granola Bars for our neighbors. Donations can be dropped off at the Children’s Wing!

Serving & Volunteering with Children’s Ministry

As we welcome new babies, children, and their families to our church, our ministry to children is growing! With all of this wonderful growth, our volunteer needs are growing as well. From rocking newborn babies to playing with preschoolers, we need your help during the worship hour. Would you consider giving just a few Sundays volunteering in Nursery caring for our youngest children during worship?

No matter your age or ability, there is a place for you! We hope you will partner with our growing children’s ministry. We will provide any training and materials. To provide the safest and most secure environment possible, all ministry partners must be approved through FBCs Policy for Volunteers with Minors and Vulnerable Adults.

People were bringing even infants to [Jesus] that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.’

Luke 18:15-16
