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 the child grow to know and love Jesus as friend, Savior, and Lord. Our varied programs for children are directed toward that end.
Serving and Volunteering in 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?
- 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.
