OUR MISSION:

Our mission in the Children’s Ministry mirrors the mission of First Baptist Church, in that we exist to lead children to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

OUR VISION:

In the same way, our vision for children is three-fold. We desire for children to develop a three-fold focus in their spiritual lives, Upward, Inward, and Outward. Upward focus is speaking of our personal worship of God. Children can experience this through our Wednesday Night Activities. Inward focus leads children to grow in their walk with Christ through discipleship, and through the different programs we offer such as Sunday School and AWANA. Outward focus relates to the aspect of our Christian lives where we focus on taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our community, country, and world through missions and evangelism.

AWANA logo

Sunday Nights •  5:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. 

3 year olds (as of 9/1 of the current school year) through 6th graders.

Check-In and Pick-Up are in the Fellowship Hall 4:45 P.M.-5:00 P.M.

This is a ministry of FBC where children learn Scripture, play games and study God's Word.

Wednesday Nights

Our Wednesday Night Activities for Preschoolers and Kids are worship-based. Our goal on Wednesday Nights is to show kids what it is like to worship.

Preschoolers meet in the Preschool Wing in Room 107 at 6:00 P.M. and have music, a Bible Story, and a craft.

Older Kids (5K-6th Grade) begin as a group in Worship, followed by Bible Study, and split into age-graded groups for activities. We meet each Wednesday Night at 6:00 P.M. in Room 213.

Check in for Birth-6th Graders on Wednesday Nights is at 5:35 P.M.

Bible Drill 

Bible Drill is a wonderful opportunity for both children and students in the church. Participating children and students will develop skills in the use of the Bible, increase their knowledge of the Bible, and learn how to apply the Bible to everyday life experiences. (From MBCB.org)

FBC has Bible Drill for children (1st-6th grade), as well as students (7th-12th grade). We practice from October until drills are over in April. Students meet on Sunday's at 4:45 (room 300) and children meet on Wednesday's at 4:00 (room 211).

Please check back here for announcements about the 2020-2021 Bible Drill year!
