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.

Children’s Ministry Happenings:

Moms' Group

Thursdays, February 16–April 6

We are so excited to begin another session of Moms’ Group and hope you can join us! Courtney Willis will lead us on Thursday mornings in a series titled “Do, Love, Walk.” She will help us explore what scripture and our faith tell us about living lives that “DO justice, LOVE mercy, WALK humbly.” We will discover how our faith informs the way that we live.

Free childcare begins at 9:15 a.m., and our gathering is from 9:30–11:00 a.m. in room 319. Invite a friend and join us! Sign-up at bit.ly/fbcmomsgroup2017.

Vacation Bible School

July 10–13

Imagine a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they’re lovingly crafted by God. Each day at Maker Fun Factory VBS, kids travel through rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures.

Children who have completed 4th and 5th grades will be doing mission projects on-site and in the community from 9:30–11:30 a.m. They will be joining the larger group for opening and closing celebrations.

Cost is $20 per child with a $50 family max. This fee includes activities, daily snacks, t-shirt and Thursday evening dinner and celebration. A CD of the program music will be available for $5 each. SIGN-UP for VBS here.

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 Extended Session caring for our youngest children during worship?

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
