“Let the little children come unto me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”
Here at First Baptist Church we have a vibrant children’s ministry! Children are very important to us and we strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which families can worship and grow. We can assure you that every child is valued, accepted, and will have a blast learning more about Jesus! In our children’s ministry, students learn relevant truths about God and are challenged to live it out every day! There are classes for children of all ages.

10:45am- We want every family and baby to enjoy their time worshiping our Lord here at FBC. Our screened loving nursery staff will make sure your baby is safe and secure while you are in service. Even the youngest baby will learn about Jesus through songs and a bible story with the Little Spouts curriculum. Whenever our doors are open, there is Nursery offered for children birth-3 years. Additionally, Wee-Worship is provided for children up to first grade.
9:30am- Children are going chronologically through the bible with The Gospel Project Curriculum. Kids of all ages dive deeply into God’s story of redemption through Jesus Christ. In every lesson, they are immersed in the gospel, understand how every story in the bible points back to our need for a Savior, and learn how when the gospel works on them, they become part of the story, too; the very hands and feet in God’s gospel project! In addition, We also offer a Sunday School class for parents of children.
Bible Studies for Life: Kids connect God’s word to their lives in an intentional way. In conjunction with the Levels of Biblical Learning, this curriculum provides age-appropriate experiences for kids at every age and stage of development, from babies to preteens. Each week kids learn to apply the Bible to real life through Bible stories that guide them in decisions and teach them how to honor God throughout their day-to-day lives, engage in discipleship through the weekly practice of Bible Skills, study, scripture memorization, and missional awareness.
