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 

Advent To-Go

Durning the month of November, you can pick up your “Family Advent To-Go” outside the Children’s wing. The kit includes five weeks of family devotions that explore the theme of light and darkness, an Advent calendar with simple, daily activities, and a Christmas Shadow Box Theater to act out the story of Christmas using light and shadows. We know families are busy, so we’ve made it simple to still celebrate Advent together as a family. Watch the video below to learn more! 

Breakfast for Dinner & Spontaneous Nativity

December 18 at 5:30pm

This event starts out in our Fellowship Hall with a meal of breakfast for dinner. We will decorate waffles with whipped cream and toppings for the kids! Dinner is from 5:30-6:15 pm.

Spontaneous Nativity
At 6:15 pm, parents will take children to the room at the back of the Fellowship Hall to pick out their costumes. They will get to choose from animals, shepherds, angels, and wise men. The children will then head to the sanctuary and find a pew at the front that is labeled with their “part.” We will have adults sitting with the children to help to guide them up front when it is their turn to take position.

Anyone else who is just planning on enjoying all of the adorable children, the program starts at 6:30pm. This precious event will be full of music, scripture, and wiggly children bringing the nativity story alive! DON’T FORGET YOUR CAMERAS!

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
