Ministry to Children
Our Children’s Ministry offers not only our Sunday Bible Study Ministry and Wednesday Music Ministry, we also seek to work as a congregation to impact the lives of children in our community by volunteering in schools, supporting mission causes around the world and we strive to provide resources for parents who want to lead their children into a growing faith in Christ. As we consider children, the issues they face, and the realities they must conquer, we believe it is our responsibility to encourage them and to offer them the building blocks that form and inform their faith now and in the future. The safety of participating children is a priority with our First Baptist Family. All paid and volunteer staff receive training annually, and background checks are performed for those teaching and caring for children.

Ministry Opportunities for Children
Sundays from 9:00 am–12:00 pm We believe faith development begins when a child is born. We have trained workers in our nursery who provide a safe and welcoming space for even the smallest in our faith community to begin exploring images from the bible, hearing bible stories, and listening to songs of our faith. Our nursery ministry is birth – 2 years old.
Our faith community believes in the power of prayer and building relationship with one another. One of our thriving intergenerational opportunities is our Prayer Partner Ministry where our school-age children are partnered with one of our senior adults each year to enter into a covenant to pray for each other throughout the school-year. We schedule a few special programs for our Prayer Partners throughout the year that help facilitate relationship building and growing together.
Our new Kidcheck system is fully implemented! For parents with children, you may have noticed a new check-in system in our children’s wing on Sunday morning. We are thrilled to utilize this great resource as we prepare for a growing children’s ministry, as we enhance our safety and security for your children, and as we prepare for upcoming renovations. Thank you for your patience in creating your individualized accounts! Please feel free to personalize your account and keep it up-to-date regularly. We will be using this system as we continue to organize events for your children. Please contact Amy McClure with any questions.
