Welcome to the Children’s Ministry of First Baptist Church. We are dedicated to teaching and ministering to you and your first through sixth grade children. Our desire is that each child develops spiritually and comes to know Jesus Christ in a real and personal way.
Our dedicated staff of teachers are specially trained, love children and are committed to building spiritual foundations that guide them to hear, to know and to do God’s Word through applying and living Biblical truths. One of our greatest joys is being a part of leading a child to Christ.
The Children’s Ministy provides a warm, loving and safe environment to learn about God, to know His love and to experience Biblical truths as they grow in Him. This growth happens through participation in Sunday School, Children’s Choirs, Mission Organizations ( GA’s and RA’s ), Children’s Camp, Retreats, Vacation Bible School and other special events.
