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.

FBCKids theme for the 2023-2024 school year is, “Goodness All Around”. This theme sprang from a place of wanting to shift from focusing on all that has been hard for us for the past 3 years toward what good is surrounding us in the here and now. The hope is that when we focus on the good, it can give us strength to make it through the tough stuff. Think of it as a “glimmer”, which are small moments that spark joy or peace that we generally notice when we are feeling safe and calm. Noticing the good can help us feel safe and calm. We hope everyone takes this with them as they adjust to the rhythms of a new school year.

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.
