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 

Saturday, October 19 | 3-5 pm

Everyone is invited to enjoy a free afternoon of games, inflatables, food, and live music! We will gather for all of the fun on the front lawn of the church. Make sure to wear your costume, invite your friends, and join us for this great community event!

 

We need LOTS of volunteers to set up, make popcorn & cotton candy, cook hotdogs, work the stations, and clean up. Sign up here to help.

A new group for 4th and 5th graders!

October 13 & November 17

We are excited to being “Merge” with our older elementary children! The purpose of this group is to allow a space for the 4th and 5th graders to dig deeper into their faith, create meaningful relationships, have fun and merge the path between children’s ministry and youth ministry. If you’d like more information about Merge, email Christina! 

 

October 6, 13, 20 & 27

This class is geared toward older elementary children who are seeking to learn more about being a disciple and who are considering baptism. We will meet in Christina’s office on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15am. 

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
