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 

This summer, FBC is taking our VBS virtual!  We will still have LOTS of fun as we “gather” for daily celebrations, worship, games, Bible discovery, science, and more. Each child will receive a “Virtual VBS kit” prior to July 13 which will include all of the supplies that you’ll need to do VBS at home, or wherever you may be!
 
It will be FREE but we need families to register their child(ren) so we can plan accordingly.  There are only 150 spaces so please sign up below by June 22. If you previously signed up for VBS, you STILL need to register for Virtual VBS and you will also be offered a refund if you already paid. Contact Christina McCord at christina@fbcgso.org if you have questions.
 

Virtual VBS 2020

We may not be able to “go” to PASSPORTkids Camp this summer, but that isn’t going to stop us from bringing camp to YOU! We have decided to hold a modified “Virtual Passport Camp” June 15-19 and it will be available to ALL of FBC’s third through fifth graders. 
 
It will be a bite-sized version of camp and will include daily devotions, energizers, reflections, worship, a Variety Show, and more. Details with specific times (we will likely meet virtually for several hours each day) and more information will be coming out soon but we wanted families to know that this opportunity will be available.

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
