Children’s Ministries

First Baptist Church is dedicated to assisting families in training their children to live a purposeful life centered in Christ, to help each other grow, become more like Christ, serve others and to spread the Good News.

Nursery

Our nursery is staffed by screened volunteers who provide care for newborns and toddlers (through 26 months) during Sunday Life Groups at 9:00 am and Worship Service at 10:30 am.
 

2s and 3s

Our 2 and 3 year old class enjoys loving teachers and an age appropriate environment for learning Bible stories.  Children play, sing, enjoy Bible stories, learning activities, snacks and a take-home paper to reinforce the Bible lesson for that day.  Classes are available during Sunday Life Groups at 9:00 am and the entire Worship Service at 10:30 am.
 

Children’s Sunday School

9:00 am

Our children’s Sunday Life Group classes are divided into:

  • 4s – Kindergarten
  • 1st – 2nd Grade
  • 3rd – 5th Grade
Each class uses Gospel Light Bible curriculum featuring Bible story lessons, memory verses, and Bible learning activities which are presented in fun and age-appropriate ways.  Our lessons are designed to cover a wide variety of Bible stories and concepts from both the Old and the New Testament.
 

Children’s Church

10:30 am

Our Children’s Church classes are divided into the following groups:

  • 2s – 4s
  • Kindergarten – 2nd Grade
  • 3rd – 5th Grade
Children ages 4 through 5th Grade are dismissed during the Worship Service.  Kindergarten through 2nd Grade then go to their own class which features “Exploring Bible People” and “Exploring Bible Stories.”  3rd, 4th and 5th Grade are dismissed to their class which is designed to teach Bible stories and spiritual life concepts (what’s in the Bible, 10 Commandments, Heroes of the Faith, Fruits of the Spirit, and more).
 

Good News Club

Wednesdays | 1:00 to 3:00 pm | October through April
 
Elementary-aged children grow and have fun with creative learning, drama and inspiring stories that teach moral values and encourage healthy character qualities like respect, honesty, and other Biblical principles. This will be our eleventh year of Good News Club with an average of 45 children attending this weekly club! Although this club meets near Bellview Elementary School, any child may attend.

Student Leadership Team

Fifth graders who have attended Good News Club in the past have the opportunity to gain some valuable leadership experience by joining the Student Leadership Team. Orientation takes place in early October where they will learn skills that will help them gain confidence, and become better leaders and examples for the younger children.
 

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is a week long program that reaches out to families in our community and shares Christ with young people (ages 3 through 5th Grade).  Children learn about Jesus’ love through songs, Bible stories, crafts, games, videos and snacks.  Middle School students through adults get the opportunity to minister to participants, share God’s love and lead some to Christ by being camp counselors, helpers and teachers.
