Preschool & Children
Your family is important to First Baptist and we are here to help you as you learn and grow in faith together with your children. Below you will find the various ways in which we strive to nurture your family and your child’s faith development.
Preschool (Birth thru Pre-K 5 year olds)
Our Preschool Ministry’s goal is to provide a safe and caring environment in which our littlest ones can grow and discover God’s love and care for them during the greatest developmental time of their life.
On Sunday mornings we use lessons that lay foundations for faith in ways appropriate for babies, toddlers and preschoolers as well as focusing on individual needs, and cultural background.
On Wednesday nights throughout the school year, preschoolers (ages 3 thru Pre-K) are given the opportunity to participate in Mission and Music experiences. Childcare is provided for birth thru 2 year olds to afford you the choice to participate in adult Bible studies and other ministry opportunities.
School-Age Children (Kindergarten thru 5th Grade)
Our responsibility in the Children’s Ministry is to build upon and bolster the faith foundation children have developed. We believe that faith, understanding and belief in Christ is developed through consistent teaching, experiential learning, developing trusting relationships with other children and adult leaders and continual interaction with Scripture.
On Sunday mornings children will participate in classes (K-1st and 2nd-5th) that will have them interacting with the Bible story and verse of the day, creative and artistic discovery of the Bible story and an opportunity to learn how the story is important in their lives.
On Wednesday nights children will alternate during the year between two experiences. One is Children’s Choir where they will learn about music and be given opportunities to sing during the year. The other experience, Kids on Mission, gives them the opportunity to discover what mission is and what missionaries are doing all over the world.
