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:

VBS | July 16th-19th | 9am-12pm

At First Baptist VBS, children (ages 4 through 5th grade) will venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Kids will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through life’s storms. Each day at Shipwrecked VBS, kids will travel through field-tested 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 am – 11:30 am. They will be joining the larger group for opening and closing celebrations.

Cost is $20 per child with a $50 family max. This includes activities, daily snacks, a T-shirt, and Thursday evening dinner and celebration. CD of program music available for $5 each.

Worship in the Arts  | July 30th- August 3rd | 9am-1pm

Worship in the Arts: engaging young artists in a life of Christian worship. Campers will enjoy music of all styles as they develop their voices individually and discover the joy of singing and making music in community with one another. Our daily worship time is enriched through our experiences in choral music, drama, visual arts, instruments (guitar, drums, handbells) and scared dance. Classes will be taught by church staff and professionals in the surrounding Greensboro area. Two tracks of study based on grade completed in 2017/18: Grades 1-4 (expanded to include 1st graders) Grades 5-7.

Campers will bring a bag lunch from home. Drinks are provided by the church. Cost is $30 through June 1st, $40 after June 1st. Special rates are available for students of Bessemer Elementary and Hope Academy – email Terri Vancil for details.

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
