“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.” Ephesians 5:1
Welcome to the children’s ministry at First Baptist Church.
Our desire is to provide a loving, safe environment in which all children would be introduced to Jesus Christ and His gift of salvation for them. We want every child to develop a lifelong relationship of love, trust, and obedience to God, resulting in a life that is pleasing to Him.
According to Ephesians 4:12, we are also commanded to “equip the saints to do the work of the ministry.” Because of this we want to give parents the tools that they need to cultivate Christ in the lives of their children. We desire to walk side by side with parents in this process to produce dedicated followers of Jesus Christ. In short, our desire is to teach children and equip parents.
TeamKID is a fun, high-energy ministry that encourages kids to know Jesus Christ and grow in a relationship with Him. All parts of TeamKID-Bible stories, Scripture memory, life application, missions, and recreation connect to teach life lessons to kids. TeamKID meets every Wednesday night at 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the children’s wing.
Our graded choir program is for children in grades 1-5. They meet on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. In addition to singing, a variety of teaching tools, including games, instruments and choreography are used during choir time. Our children’s choirs often participate in our church musicals.
Children’s Life Groups
Our classes are designed to equip children to live God’s purpose for their lives. Through Bible stories and lessons the children will discover that God has created us for a purpose. Application is then made from the Scriptures to everyday living. The teachers strive to make the learning fun, creative and exciting! Classes for children in grades 1-5 meet Sunday mornings in the children’s wing at 10:45 a.m.
Children’s Church (Grades K-3)
Children will enjoy worship through exciting kid’s music. They are challenged spiritually with a mission story and Bible story on their level. They collect an offering and have prayer time. The children will also enjoy puppets and skits that both entertain and teach spiritual truths. Children’s Church is for 1st through 3rd grades at 9:30 a.m. in the Treehouse.
Bible Skills, Drills, & Thrills
This program is for children in grades 4-5. The class is offered on Wednesday nights at 5:30 p.m. The children learn the books of the Bible, Bible verses, and how to locate key Bible passages. Bible Drill competitions on the association and state levels are held in April. Space for this class is limited. Call the church to sign up or for more information.
