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.

THANK YOU for an AWESOME VBS!

“Do good. Seek peace and go after it!” -Psalm 34:14

 

 

141 children learned what it means to “Do good and go after it!”
67 volunteers made VBS happen
52 heart crayons delivered to Kids Path
144 tissue paper flowers taken to Beacon Place
122 snack bags made
7 large bins of towels, washcloths, socks and hygiene items donated
$697.12 raised through the 4th & 5th grade Lemonade Stand AND
302 cases of water OR 7,248 bottles delivered to the IRC!

These numbers tell us just part of the story of Hero VBS at First Baptist Church. The “God Moments” that we witnessed and that children shared are COUNTLESS. I had excited kids approach me daily with ways that they had shown HEART, COURAGE, WISDOM, AND HOPE inspired by their experience at VBS.

Missions is core to what we believe and it was a driving force in our VBS planning. Teaching children how our faith informs our actions and our hearts is woven through all that kids learn at First Baptist Church.

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?

Witness infants’ wonder up close
Giggle while you play with toddlers
Help children know God’s great love for them

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
