Children’s Ministries

Jesus loves little children. And so do we!

One of our church’s highest priorities is to do as Jesus said … to bring the children to Him. To love and protect them. To teach them about God and His holy word, the Bible.

First Baptist offers one of the most extensive and caring children’s programs in our region. Our programs include:

On the first Sunday of the month, during Worship, children from kindergarten-5th grade are invited to leave for their ownblank personal worship experience. Children learn a Biblical lesson, create an associated craft, play games, enjoy snacks and fellowship

  • Camp Sizzle. Kids need vacations, too. They enjoy going to a summer retreat where they play with other kids their age, learn about Jesus, and find friendship through teamwork. Camp Sizzle 2023 was a huge success with 70 campers in attendance.
  • Each summer First Baptist hosts Vacation Bible School, where kids gather to enjoy recreation, games, snacks, and – most important – to learn about Jesus. VBS 2023 was packed with 261 children, AMEN! VBS 2024 will be June 24-28.blank
  • Our Awana Club helps kids memorize and understand the Bible, God’s holy word. On Wednesday evenings during the local school year kids gather for recreation, a themed program, and Bible memorization and understanding. Our 2023-24 Awana Club is underway, running through April 2024. We have openings for children kindergarten-6th grade. Transportation available from FES campus.
  • Sports activities teach children teamwork, moral behavior, and competition in a fun and safe environment. First Baptist’s Upward Sports provides all of these in an active program of flag football, basketball, and cheerleading.

Raising your children is demanding work, and the most important job you’ll ever have. First Baptist also sponsors a program to help the mothers of children and youth:

  • ARK gives busy caregivers, (moms or dads, grandmas, grandpas-you get the picture!), a short break from parenting by providing fun, well-supervised learning and play in a Christian environment for their pre-school children.

Give your children, and yourself, the lives God has planned for you. Join us!
