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.

Pathfinders Class: Discerning Baptism

Sundays, October 14 – November 4  |  9:15 – 10:15 am

Is your child starting to ask questions about baptism and showing interest in making that commitment? Do they want to learn more about what following Jesus really looks like? Maybe they’re ready for the Pathfinders Class.

This class is geared toward children in upper elementary school who are seeking to learn more about what it means to be a disciple and contemplating baptism. The class will meet in Christina’s office on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 am from October 14-November 4. Please email Christina at christina@fbcgso.org if your child will be attending or if you have questions about if they are ready for this class.

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
